Last Updated On: 27/07/2017
The Mini Remastered by David Brown Automotive is their eagerly-awaited second model, following on from the success of the Fastback GT. Based on a classic Mini and reborn into a city car for modern living, Mini Remastered combines the iconic Sixties car’s looks with the David Brown Automotive design language, unique coachbuilding, modern technology and luxury hand-finished materials – all handbuilt at their new Silverstone HQ in Great Britain.
Designed to be the ultimate in town and city driving, Mini Remastered uses a range of luxurious materials and finishes to create the ultimate modern classic . The first of its kind, each car is built by hand from the ground up using brand new body panels which have been perfectly engineered to create smooth and accurate surfaces with perfect shut lines. The exterior shape has been refined, visually softened and ‘cleaned’ by de-seaming the silhouette and welding in bespoke structural beams, with additional support struts added for rigidity. Each car also undergoes a laborious sound-proofing process to ensure passenger comfort in the cabin.
Their unique design language is carried over from our debut model and includes a bespoke aluminium grille and a full LED exterior rear light cluster with the same jewel-like details and bezels as Speedback GT. Each car will have handcrafted enamel David Brown Automotive badges and modern detail touches such as puddle lights fitted to each classic bullet-style wing mirror.
The interior is beautifully designed around modern convenience and luxury. Mini Remastered offers bespoke sculpted seats with a hand-trimmed interior swathed in British-sourced hides and a combination of paint, leather and fabric finishes to the dash. Premium retro Smiths® dials, an engraved Moto-Lita® steering wheel with enhanced driving position, and the addition of a cup holder to the centre console make Mini Remastered one of the most luxurious classic cars ever re-imagined.
The car, which is offered as standard with an in-built infotainment and navigation system, perfect for town and city-dwellers, has a host of modern connectivity, including Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®, a four-speaker sound system, USB connectivity and charging, as well as keyless-go and remote central locking.
