Classic Lines Remastered
Inspired by Sir Alec Issigonis’ classic icon, our experienced design and engineering teams worked meticulously to remaster the vision to create a contemporary design classic.
De-seamed, strengthened and sound-proofed throughout, Mini Remastered not only looks great, but has improved structural integrity and comfort. The clean and elegant lines of Mini Remastered are brought to life with sculpted body-coloured wheel arch extensions and centrally-mounted exhaust outlets, providing the car with a classic, yet dynamic stance.
A hand-applied paint process that lasts for four weeks, ensures that every car is not only flawlessly finished but protected for a lifetime. Finished with beautiful badges which are handcrafted using traditional die-sinking enamel techniques, every detail has been considered.
Jewel-like LED rear light clusters and indicators, framed by bespoke aluminium surrounds, alongside the signature aluminium grille take inspiration from the David Brown Automotive design language, whilst chrome bullet-style door-mounted wing mirrors with integrated LED puddle lamps bring function and style together.
Push the start button and the small, punchy engine fires into life. It's time.
The paint finish on Mini Remastered by David Brown Automotive is exquisite. Over four weeks, levels of hand-applied primer, paint and lacquer are slowly built up, layer by layer, before being polished until its deep rich paint has a mirror-like surface.
A Mini Retreat

Labour of Love
With mass-production comes compromise. By contrast, our low-volume, handcrafted Mini Remastered is built to the highest standards using a combination of traditional coachbuilding techniques and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes.
Our engineers scrutinise all aspects of the car from the ground up. The result is a completely new structure and exterior body shell, that not only offers classic, clean styling but improved rigidity, sound-proofing and reliability. Over 1,000 man hours go into creating each Mini Remastered.
Livin' For The City
The original engine has undergone a complete transformation, having been completely rebuilt with brand new parts throughout and tuned to perfection. The standard car now produces 30% more power than the original unit. The engine's outer body has been cleaned and painted, whilst the oil filler cap and filter are colour coded with the car's exterior paint selection.
The power increase is perfectly mated to a manual four or five speed transmission that channels the cars energy through every shift and encouraging you to change gear, simply for the pleasure of it.
