David Brown Automotive, famous for its Mini interpretations, is now bringing a purely electric variant.
Old mini, new technologySmall battery – city car waiting list now open
If your name is David Brown, you almost inevitably have to deal with Aston Martin. David Patrick Brown founded David Brown Automotive in 2014 – and brought the Speedback GT onto the market in 2014, an in-house design on a Jaguar XK platform that was its own interpretation of a modern Aston Martin. By the way, this vehicle is still being built and sold.
The battery is small – and fits in the engine compartment – DBA
But David Brown Automotive is more successful with its Mini ReMastered – used Minis are completely rebuilt, given modern technology and a lot of luxury (and sometimes plenty of horsepower). These “new” Minis cost a lot of money, even six figures – and sell really well; various special editions have long since become collector’s items.
And yes, you can expect it to be really expensive – DBA
Now the British mini specialists are going one step further, doing the same thing with the old minis, but converting them into pure electric vehicles. There is a small battery (18.8 kWh), a range of around 180 kilometers, 97 hp and 175 Nm maximum torque. No prices are communicated, but the pleasure is unlikely to be cheap. You can now join the waiting list.
