The Brabham BT21 was a Formula One racing car that was built in 1966 in large numbers. It was delivered to private customers and 110 vehicles were produced.

Most were Formula 3 cars, some were built for the U.S. Formula B and were designated BT21B. The cars for the Formule Libre ran under the ID BT21C.

The chassis was flatter than the BT18, the suspension was revised and the body was built from scratch. In 1966 and 1967 the Cosworth MAE engine with 125 hp was used and in 1968, a Holbay engine was used.

Private owner Peter Westbury and his racing team Felday Engineering Ltd had a lot of success with the BT21 in 1967. In 1968, the BT21 and Tecno won a lot of races in Formula 3.

The BT21B had some changes compared to the original car. The car was given wider wheels and a more stable space frame which came from the BT23. In 1969, the BT21 was slowly replaced by the BT28.
