Click above for a high-res gallery of the Brabham BT 92
After seeing a rendering of the M3-based BT 92 from Brabham Racing, we were anxiously anticipating the car's debut at the Essen Motor Show this past week. The real thing didn't disappoint - beautiful carbon fiber bodywork, massive brakes, adjustable suspension, and unique wheels wrapped with Dunlop tires. Sound like a winning combination, yet? Well, maybe not. Like many of you, we assumed that the company was directly linked to the Brabham family, well known for its racing success. This is apparently not the case, and according to GoldCoast.com.au, Sir Jack Brabham is upset about the use of his family's name and has stated that legal action will be taken against the German-based company. The names "Brabham" and "Brabham Racing" have been legally registered, but the desired link to the original race team is apparent in the press release after the jump. We're not lawyers, but we can't imagine the use of the Brabham name being allowed for too much longer. Thanks for the tip, Joel. Gallery: Brabham BT 92
