Place your order now for a new Mini...-remastered.jpg

David Brown Automotive has announced it will build a limited run of cars based on the iconic Mini, only customised to meet the needs of the 21st century driver.

Based on a classic Mini, the remastered edition combines the iconic Sixties carís looks with unique coachbuilding construction, modern technology and luxury hand-finished materials. The car will be all hand-built at the companyís new Silverstone HQ in the UK.

The car will come with all of the modern features you would expect from a new car, such as an in-built infotainment/navigation system that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a four-speaker sound system, keyless-go, USB connectivity and charging, as well as push-button start and remote central locking.

The interior will feature 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.

For the powertrain, the classic Mini engine has been fettled to increase power by up to 50% more than the original unit.

the addition of a cup holder to the centre console will make it one of the most luxurious Mini's ever built.

It is just fiscally irresponsible.

Damned good cars.
