How is it that these guys could get a car done, but Dany Bahar and Lotus with a whole factory and a tonne of loaned money could only make props?

I remember Brabham's son talking about crowd funding a few months ago. [Media] http://www.brabham-digital.com/ [/Media]

With the Brabham name and presumed pedigree. The race car built before the road car? Old motto: Race (Win) on Sunday sell on Monday. Doesn't really matter what it looks like then does it?

I think it looks incredible, very well visually balanced.

So, who 'owns' the Brabham name now? I seem to remember it was Brabham and Ron Taranac (Ralt) who owned it then did it no go to the Canadian (Pure?) guy?
