David Brown Automotive, purveyors of remastered classics, delivers a new performance take on their Mini Remastered – the Mini Remastered Oselli Edition.
David Brown Automotive started off by taking the underpinnings of a Jaguar XK and clothing them in Aston Martin inspired panels to create a car – the Speedback GT – which looks like a more modern take on a DB5. And it looks great.
But then it should, because it will cost you at least £600k, and if you want the follow-up Speedback Silverstone Edition that’ll set you back around £750k.
But David Brown doesn’t just build the Speedback, it also builds the Mini Remastered, a remastered Mini which is much cheaper than the Speedback. Although, with prices starting from £50k when it arrived (and much more when you add the bits you want), it’s not exactly bargain basement.
Now, just as it has done with the Speedback Silverstone Edition, David Brown is back with a performance take on the Mini Remastered – the Mini Remastered Oselli Edition.
The Oselli Edition gets its engine capacity upped to 1420cc and a new five-speed gearbox, SPAX dampers, bigger brakes, bigger wheels and tyres, mesh grille with inset LED spots, two seats with a roll-cage behind (with four seats an option), and darkened brightware with black wheel arches and mirrors.
David Brown are making 60 Oselli Edition models to mark Mini’s anniversary, with prices starting at £98k for the four-seater and £108k for the two-seater with roll cage.
Oh, and you’ve got to add VAT to those prices.
