What is the remastered mini size?
text & photo: Kazuhide Ueno
Classic mini that is still very popular in Japan.
The direct and pleasant drive feel that makes it feel like four tires are directly connected to the hands and feet if it fits in a compact body cabin, and it had the pleasure of being addicted once riding.
However, if you get used to modern comfort cars as you get older, you will hesitate because you don’t have any comfortable equipment even if you want to enjoy Classic Mini again.
What I would like to pay attention to is the “Remastered Car”, which is a modern car that has been given the latest technology, performance, and comfortable equipment that can be used on the modern road.
Against this backdrop, a classic mini, remastered by David Brown Automotive (DBA) in the UK, was launched in 2019.
The body size is a familiar size of 3055×1470×1330mm in total length×width×height.
When you hear David Brown, I think of the person who rebuilt the manufacturer of Newport Pagnell, but this is a completely different person.

The DBA Mini Remastered is more than just a new car.
The new body shell by British Motor Heritage Co., Ltd. has removed the mating parts of the panels on the A-pillar and C-pillar, and the front and rear over fenders and side skirts have been made into a smooth body.
In addition, dedicated ones with increased rigidity are used.
Although the engine is basically the original one, it is fully rebuilt with new parts and equipped with the one tuned for the character.
The standard transmission is a 4-speed MT, but you can also choose a 5-speed MT or automatic.
The most important feature is that it has the same level of reliability and comfort as a modern car. Air conditioning, which is now indispensable equipment, power steering, power windows, and central door locks are standard equipment.
Enjoy the world of Classic Mini without any patience, thanks to the high quality interior trim and bright LED headlamps.
The main point is that the body color and inner trim are decided in bespoke style while discussing with the owner, and carefully made by hand.
Therefore, the price varies depending on the order contents, but it is expensive at around 16 million yen.
