Brooke Cars Ltd is a British car manufacturer of specialist sports cars, based near Honiton in Devon. It was established in 2002, following the purchase of the vehicle rights from Brooke Kensington in 1990. The company produces one model, the Double R, a lightweight two-seater open sports car weighing around 510 kg (1,120 lb) and is powered by a 2.3-litre Cosworth engine producing 260 bhp. Financing issues have meant these exciting cars have been produced in very small numbers. Designed to be a modern version of the 1950/60's single seater racers such as the Maserati 250F but with the added advantage of two seats, critical to the look are the concealed headlights and oval front radiator intake.
Manufactured in 2008 and registered in the UK on 1st January 2009, this Brooke 260 RR is the ninth car to be produced by the resurrected Brooke Cars Ltd. The 2261cc Duratec engine with Cosworth throttle bodies is mated to a five-speed gearbox. This mid-engined fully road legal Brooke, sits on lightweight OZ alloy wheels and Toyo tyres; four-point safety harness belts are fitted and there is an easy to read digital stack display system. This particular example was fitted with over £7,000 of extras including a Quaffe limited slip differential, adjustable dampers, roll bars, carbon fibre engine cover, motorsport radiator and a tonneau cover. The fastidious vendor has looked after this Brooke impeccably and as such, it presents in excellent condition. Supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate valid until 21st June 2017 and a collection of invoices; this is a stunning looking car whether being used on the road or track.
