David Brown Automotive is preparing to announce details of an exciting new project that will lead to the launch of the first performance-focused Mini Remastered model. The highly-tuned Mini Remastered model will serve a limited run of 60 cars to mark the same amount of years since the first Mini was revealed on 26th August, 1959.
Two teaser images released by David Brown Automotive give hints of the high-performance version of Mini Remastered that will be made in partnership with classic car performance specialists, Oselli. Like other models from David Brown Automotive, this new model further demonstrates a commitment to bespoke British handcraftsmanship, combined with modern engineering, technology and conveniences.
The performance-enhanced car offers customers an engine unit developed by Oselli, with other performance upgrades added. Oselli is a prominent force in the classic car performance and restoration sector, beginning business in the early-1960s and forming a niche to specialise in tuning and enhancing performance for the A-series engine. The expert team at Oselli has a wealth of experience rebuilding and improving engines for a performance experience, as well as preparing, building and racing cars in competitive motorsport events.
The limited edition Mini Remastered will be offered in a number of one-off colour combinations, developed exclusively by David Brown Automotive. In-line with the new model’s race car pedigree, the company is also making a number of matching race suits and helmets as optional extras for owners of the new edition.
“We are extremely excited to announce this pioneering new partnership with Oselli,” said David Brown, company founder and CEO. “We are experts in car design and engineering, while Oselli add to our combined knowledge as long-term specialists in honing race car performance. The classic Mini has a rich racing heritage and our new car, to be revealed in full soon, gives customers yet another reason to want to own a Mini Remastered now that we are also catering for the performance market.”
Renderings of the new car will be revealed in full before David Brown Automotive exhibits at Goodwood Revival (13th to 15thSeptember). As well as revealing more information on this new model at the show, the company will be exhibiting a Speedback model and two unique Mini Remastered models on its 100m2 stand, located ‘Over the Road’ at Stand 389, adjacent to the fairground and accessible from the pre-1966 car park.
