The Brabham BT11 (also known as Repco Brabham BT11) is a Formula One racing car built in 1964, mainly for use by privateers in Grand Prix racing, but was also used by the Brabham works team during 1964 and 1965. It was the only competitive car of the period available to privateers, recording eight podium finishes in total. The car's best results came at consecutive events in the United States and Mexico 1965, with Dan Gurney (USA) qualifying and finishing second in the latter.
It was in a BT11 that 1970 World Champion Jochen Rindt debuted in Grand Prix racing. John Taylor however died four weeks after suffering severe burns in an accident with Jacky Ickx's Matra at the 1966 German Grand Prix.
The BT11 was also raced in the popular off season Tasman Series.
