The British coachbuilder that uses modern as well as traditional methods to create contemporary luxury models has used its expertise to create this version of the iconic city car.
Only 60 bespoke units of the Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition will be offered and they can be lefthand drive or righthand drive. Pricing starts from £98,000 (about RM575,000) and personalisation, which most customers would want, would add extra cost.
Made in partnership with race powertrain specialists, Oselli, the new car from David Brown Automotive is the most performance-focused version of the Mini Remastered series created to date by the company. Hand-made to order, it comes with a 1450 cc twin-carb engine with an output of 125 bhp/153 Nm and gets to 100 km/h from standstill in a claimed 7.8 seconds.
Key performance enhancements to make Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition ready for the track include a number of technical changes overseen by Oselli, including a hand-ported and polished cylinder head, strengthened crankshaft, high-torque performance orientated camshaft, and a limited-slip differential. There is a remastered 5-speed gearbox, while an automatic version is also available (offered as a 4-speed set-up, with a 1380 cc engine).
Other sports-centric tuning around the car including high-performance brakes by AP Racing, sports-orientated suspension by Bilstein and a free-flowing sports exhaust system. The car is provided with larger 13-inch wheels fitted with high speed-approved tyres.
Unique exterior colour themes are available with contrasting stripes that carry through to the interior design. All exterior graphics are hand-painted while hand-enameled badging adorns the exterior with full black chrome brightware. A choice of ‘Carbon Grey’ and ‘Old English White’ base colours match the accents in either ‘Competition Red’, ‘Royal Blue’ or ‘Heritage Green’.
The grille of the car shows the number ‘60’ in contrasting hues as a nod not only to the race numbers that show on cars taking to the track, but also to the 60 years since the original Mini first rolled off the production line.
For a performance-orientated sporty look and classic car feel. The Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition can be ordered in either a 2-sea or 4-seat configuration, with the 2-seater featuring bucket seats and a rear hand-trimmed roll-cage, plus a 4-point seatbelt harness. There is also the option to order the car with twin fuel tanks for extra range on longer journeys or race events.
For those who plan on not using the car for racing, there is an interior lined with hand-trimmed luxury leather and Alcantara materials which give a premium look to what was originally a basic classless city car.
