The 2015 Quail Motorsport gathering will mark the debut of the British exotic grand tourer David Brown Speedback GT in the United States. The Jaguar-based coachbuilt motor will be available in the American market as a made to order model, starting from $753,000.

That sounds like a lot of money for what’s essentially an old Jaguar XK underneath, but if you want to drive around in a super exclusive car of which there are only a handful around the world, that is what it’s going to cost you. What’s more, the Speedback GT boasts a pretty special design, with a hint of old Aston Martin models and lots of wonderful little hand-crafted details.

Still, the main issue with David Brown Speedback GT is that that kind of money can buy you an awful lot of more interesting cars with better mechanicals. The GT is the kind of car you have to completely and utterly fall in love with before you buy it, which of course makes it a somewhat risky investment. It isn’t especially fast either, packing 510 hp from a supercharged V8 which is good for a 0 to 60 time of 4.5 seconds.

Company founder and CEO David Brown said: “It’s been a fantastic year for Speedback GT since its launch. Having had such a warm reception at a number of world-leading shows in Europe, it is a natural progression to bring the car to an American audience, where we’re sure there will be plenty of fans. We have already received a lot of enquiries asking when we would be bringing the car over so we’re really excited to finally be making the journey across. The Quail is the ideal venue to exhibit Speedback GT, with its luxurious, elegant, classic setting that encapsulate the car’s virtues and is full of true  car enthusiasts.”
