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 six-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 Quaife limited slip differential, adjustable dampers, roll bars, carbon fibre engine cover, motorsport radiator and a tonneau cover. Sold by ourselves in 2016 to the lady owner who has covered more than 12,000 miles in this Brooke under her stewardship. Presenting in excellent condition and signed by Sir Stirling Moss this 260RR is supplied with a V5C registration document and a history folder together with a spare engine cover and a spare set of new tyres; this is a stunning looking car whether being used on the road or track.
The health and safety of both our customers and team remains the utmost priority, we are therefore operating to Government guidelines throughout viewing and auction day.
