Boutique coachbuilder, David Brown Automotive, has introduced the Mini Remastered. It’s a 1960s Mini with a reconditioned 1275cc 4-speed engine tuned to 78bhp, a reconstructed chassis, a rejuvenated bodyshell and a modernised interior.
Handmade to order, customisable and costing as much as five new MINI Ones in the UK, the Mini Remastered is a special supermini for moneyed urbanites living in chic cities such as London.
The costly little ride’s features include proper 7-inch touchscreen infotainment, delightful design details in chrome or aluminium, full-grain English leather upholstery throughout and a lovely Mota- Lita wooden steering wheel.
The car’s paint job takes four weeks, but it won’t take quite as long or as many man-hours to choose one of the 13 cool colours available, which include Fade To Black, Bad Moon Rising, Blue Jean, Wild Thing, Good Vibrations and A Whiter Shade Of Pale.
