David Brown Automotive (DBA) has resurrected the classic Mini and reimagined it as a modern 21st Century city car.
It is the first new version of the car to go on sale in the after production halted in 2001 after 41 years.
Mini still produces cars these days but they’re not really… well, mini.
Mini remastered by David Brown Automotive reinvents the iconic car
DBA has taken the classic sixties body and shell of the Mini for the Mini Remastered but has introduced modern tech into the car to make it more than just a fashion accessory.
Each handbill car is fitted with a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a four-speaker sound system, keyless-entry, USB connectivity and charging, as well as push-button start and remote central locking.
Engineers who worked on the car have given it 30 per cent more power than its predecessor, which should make it a nice and nippy city car.
Under the bonnet is Mini’s famous 1,275cc engine which produces 90bhp and has a top speed of 90mph.
It will also go from 0-60mph in 11.6 seconds. These figures aren’t going to blow you away but for a car so low to the ground and only weighing 700kg, it is going to feel like something much mightier.
However, the elephant in the room is the price. It will cost you between £70,000 and £100,000 to own one of these cars.
