Coventry (10th November 2014): The David Brown Automotive Speedback GT will feature as a key exhibit at the Advanced Engineering UK show, to be held at the NEC in Birmingham on 11th and 12th November.
This huge show, with over 700 exhibitors, is the UK’s fastest growing and largest annual event for the advanced engineering communities. The show, now in its sixth year, presents the very latest engineering technology across five fields; Aero Engineering, Composite Engineering, Auto Electronics, Performance Metals and Automotive Engineering.
The Speedback GT has achieved much praise for its use of classic craftsmanship teamed with the very latest advanced modern practices. The vehicles body comprises a structurally-advanced pillarless monocoque, lightweight handcrafted aluminium body panels and internal aluminium substructure. The interior is also comprised of features which wouldn’t have been possible without today’s engineering and manufacturing techniques; including 3D printed substrates encompassing complex curves to which British burr elm veneer is then applied, switches created by the latest direct metal laser sintering techniques and components machined from solid billets of aluminium.
The show also features a series of 200 presentations by industry experts, including David Brown Automotive’s Head of Design, Alan Mobberley, who will present a seminar entitled “Speedback: A classically styled GT incorporating modern technology and traditional craftsmanship” on Wednesday 12th at 1pm.
“It is an honour to be asked to display the Speedback GT at a show as prestigious as Advanced Engineering,” says Alan Mobberley. “Speedback demonstrates the very best of modern low volume production techniques alongside classic craftsmanship which we hope will appeal to the specialist visitors at the NEC.”
Speedback will take pride of place in Hall 5 for the duration of the show; potential visitors can register for entry through the event’s website: www.advancedengineeringuk.com
