BRABAZON MOTORS INTERNATIONAL AUTOMOTIVE DESIGN
Brabazon Motors International Automotive Design has a wide portfolio of specialist and production car design from the last 40 years!
Initially work came in the form of design services for rail cars which then led to Automotive Body and Chassis Engineering but due to the increasing customers requirements IAD soon expanded to encompass everything from Design/ Styling and Engineering through to small-scale production. IAD had at its peak a large R&D facility in the UK plus 5 overseas operations in the USA, France, Spain and Germany along with liaison offices in Korea, Japan and Russia. It was the world's largest R&D consultancy not only working in Automotive, but also Commercial Vehicles and Aerospace. The British company was in competition with Italdesign, Pininfarina, Bertone.
IAD amassed a talented group of designers, engineers and prototype builders who have subsequently gone on to senior positions within the automotive industry. IAD designed and developed many cutting edge and memorable concept cars developed as showcases demonstrating the company's creative and engineering expertise including the Alien, the Hunter, the Impact and the Venus. In the 2010s IAD combined with Brabazon Motors to form Brabazon IAD.
To maximise efficiency Brabazon utilise state of the art design tools such as 3D CAD and 3D laser scanning, backed up by close links to specialist prototyping and manufacturing partners in the United Kingdom.
Brabazon IAD merged with the Handley-Page Group in 2020, investing in a number of new and upcoming 3rd party start-up firms concentrating on high-performance, custom, electric and hydrogen powered vehicles. See more details below on EAV and the Riversimple Rasa:
