9th September 2019
David Brown Automotive is delighted to reveal the full details of Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition A one-of-a-kind performance version of the celebrated city car, the highly tuned Mini Remastered will be made on a limited production run of 60 cars to mark the first Mini launching in 1959, and will be made in partnership with classic car performance specialist, Oselli.
The performance-enhanced Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition offers customers an engine unit developed by Oselli, with other tuning upgrades added. The powertrain unit is a punchy 1,420cc Stage 3 engine. The uprated engine will be paired with a remastered five-speed gearbox. With 40% more power than the original A-series engine, the powertrain unit will deliver in excess of 100bhp with buckets of torque to make for a thrilling driving experience.
The exhaust system and air intake will be specially engineered to manage the higher power output.
A strong focus on race-ready driving means the chassis is uprated with key suspension enhancements, featuring adjustable SPAX performance dampers. A race-spec brake kit and wider tyres ensure performance at high speed. The tyres are fitted to 7J x 13-inch Enkei alloy wheels, available in either a gold or silver finish.
Customers have the choice of two main exterior colour ways; with either a primary body colour in off-white paint or dark grey and a choice of a three tier full-length racing stripe and side accents in either Crimson, Royal Blue or Racing Green. Brightware will be darkened in order to reflect the performance feel over the model, to include black wheel arches, black mirrors (including interior mirror) and door handles. A monotone bonnet badge denotes the car’s performance ability, a hint to lineage introduced by David Brown Automotive with the same feature on Speedback Silverstone Edition.
Inside, Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition is available to order either as a two-seater with a rear hand-trimmed roll cage, or as a four-seater car, featuring accent colours to match the chosen racing stripe colour and black accents. The two-seater version is made with hand-trimmed bucket seats and a half-leather roll cage with rear-seat storage and can be equipped with a four-point harness by Sabelt, available in a number of colours.
In-line with the new model's race car pedigree, the company is also making a number of personalised matching race suits and helmets as optional extras for owners of the new edition. Pre-orders are open now for the Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition, with first deliveries scheduled for next year. The four-seater version is priced from £98,000.00, while the two-seater car – complete with hand-trimmed roll cage – will cost from £108,000.00 (both prices excluding taxes).
