The Jet Age. An era born out of renewed positivity and a growing belief that anything was possible. Jet power revolutionised the world and the race was on to build the sleekest and fastest jets.

SPEEDBACK SILVERSTONE EDITION

WELCOME TO THE JET AGE

We were going places and jet propulsion was taking us there. Automotive design was at an all-time high. Manufacturers and coachbuilders across the world were taking inspiration from supersonic flight. There was a need for speed and it wasn’t slowing down.

Speedback Silverstone Edition encapsulates this period of time, subtly recreates the mood of the Jet Age and propels it into the modern day.

Limited to just 10 examples

EXTERIOR

SPEEDBACK IN ITS RAWEST FORM

Speedback Silverstone Edition is a tribute to the GT racers of the past. Its sleek, streamlined aluminium body reveals its muscular, flowing proportions, indicative of speed, power and performance.

There is no doubt that the 1960’s was a period that inspired some of the most beautiful automobiles ever made. When those cars were made lighter for competitive motorsport, they revealed their true form and their simplified lines made them even more desirable.

Body-coloured side skirt extensions and jet turbine-inspired ‘Afterburner’ 20” forged alloy wheels ground the car with an aggressive, purposeful stance.

Twin auxiliary lamps are inset within the stealth black signature mesh grille, reminiscent of endurance GT racers.

FIRST CLASS CABIN

Inside the cockpit, uniquely brogued and embroidered leathers, open-pore scorched wood veneers, brushed chrome brightware and jet-inspired air vents pay homage to the racing past of the Silverstone Circuit, whilst hinting at the prestigious location’s aeronautical heritage.

Each texture, material and finish within the cabin has been thoughtfully selected to stir the emotions. It’s an environment that seamlessly balances power and refinement. From the race-derived, contoured, flat-bottomed leather and Alcantara® steering wheel, to the beautifully brogued natural grain ‘Antique’ leather upholstery and Kvadrat® ‘Remix’ premium fabric, the cockpit is an awe-inspiring place to be.

PAINT PROCESS

FLY BY NIGHT

Painted over an 8 week process in the exclusive ‘Fly By Night’ exterior finish with ‘Black Night’ fading racing stripe, Speedback Silverstone Edition is finished with monotone enamelled badging and unique exterior brightware finished in an aircraft- inspired brushed chrome.
