David Brown Reveals Faster Mini Remastered ‘Oselli Edition’ With An Eye-Watering Price Tag

David Brown Automotive isn’t attending the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, but it has unveiled the new Mini Remastered Oselli Edition just as the event is about to kick off.

Created in partnership with classic car specialist Oselli, the new hot variant of the Mini Remastered celebrates the 60th anniversary of the iconic hatchback. It will be offered in a limited production run of 60 cars.

Pre-orders are open and the high-performance Mini Remastered Oselli Edition can be had with seating for four or for two. The former starts at £98,000 ($120,370/€109,150) and the latter at £108,000 ($132,652/€120,288), tax excluded, in the UK. Or you could buy TWO Porsche 718 Cayman T sports cars for just as much, as it has an MSRP of £52,055 ($63,937/€57,978).

Expensive pricing aside, the limited edition Mini features an upgraded version of the original A-Series engine, with a capacity of 1,420 cc. Oselli tuned it to deliver 40 percent more power, which in this case, takes the output to over 100 hp. The air intake and exhaust have been upgraded to further bring some extra power, while a five-speed gearbox is the only option.

Other mechanical enhancements include the addition of the Spax performance dampers and upgraded brakes, with larger front discs gripped by 4-piston calipers and alloy rear drums. At 7×13-inch, the Enkei alloy wheels, available in silver or gold, are employed to accommodate the bigger brakes and improve the grip levels.

Finished in either white or grey, with red, blue or green stripes and accents, the Mini Remastered Oselli also features darkened brightware and mesh grille with two LED spotlights. The build number is painted on the grille and at the back and the monotone badge on the bonnet rounds up the visual changes.

The two-seat version sports hand-trimmed bucket seats and a half-leather roll cage with rear storage. It can be fitted with a Sabelt four-point racing harness in different colors or a standard seatbelt better suitable for daily use. A hand-trimmed roll cage is also available, along with Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and build number displayed on the glove compartment. The two- and four-seater variants also get accent colors that match the chosen racing stripe and black trim.

Buyers can spend more money on personalized racing suits and helmets.
