News Mini Remastered by David Brown

Mini Remastered by David Brown

If you’re thinking this sounds a lot like Rob Dickinson’s Singer’s mantra when it comes to Porsche 911s, you’d be on the right track. The difference obviously lies in the donor car.

David Brown however also builds bespoke cars called the Speedback GT. Picture an Aston Martin BD5 or DB6 but nowhere near as elegant or fetching. Added to the portfolio now is Mini Remastered. In other words, David Brown’s team fast-forwards your Mini into the 21st century with more power, luxury and features.

While no one blinks as eye when a Singer leaves the shop with a $500k or more sticker price, paying £75,000 to start for a 71-horsepower Mini is shocking. Granted, perusing the website and reading up on what is done to the cars justifies the asking price but paying over $125,000 for a Mini seems insane. Imagine what else you could buy for the money?! What so you guys think?
