Axalta Coating Systems has been named the exclusive coatings supplier for Brabham Automotive in Australia. According to Axalta, the company’s latest waterborne coating technology from its premium paint brand Standox will be applied to more than 70 limited edition luxury vehicles from the Celebration and Signature Series manufactured by Brabham Automotive and distributed across the world.
The company says it will partner with Brabham during the design process to ensure each vehicle meets the highest standards of quality demanded by both companies. The colour scheme of most of the new vehicles will match those used on the historic Brabham F1 cars, including the BT19 and the BT46B famously driven by three-time F1 World Drivers’ Champion Niki Lauda. Customers who want a unique finish have the opportunity to work with Axalta and Brabham Automotive to create a special colour design. Each vehicle is made to order, enhancing the exclusivity for its customers.
“Axalta is proud to be named the exclusive supplier to Brabham Automotive,” said Peter Kingsley-Rowe, Australia Territory Business Manager at Axalta Coating Systems in Australia and New Zealand. “We share a common vision of developing high-quality, durable and sustainable products utilising advanced waterborne technologies. We look forward to working with the Brabham Automotive team and sharing our expertise to provide vehicles that have both exceptional appearance and performance.”

This partnership aligns with our goal of achieving the highest levels of quality and performance on the road and track. We look forward to partnering with Axalta and leveraging their large global footprint to deliver exceptional vehicles.”
