Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition launched

David Brown Automotive (DBA)has revealed the new Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition, with the first examples completed and customer deliveries started.

Made in partnership with race powertrain specialist, Oselli, the highly tuned performance version of the luxury marque’s celebrated iconic city car is the most performance-focused version of the Mini Remastered created by the company.

Oselli is a prominent force in the classic car performance and restoration sector, beginning business in the early-1960s and forming a niche to specialise in tuning and enhancing performance for the A-series engine. The company has a wealth of experience rebuilding and improving engines for a performance experience, as well as preparing, building, and racing cars in competitive motorsport events.

The car launches with a power rating of 125 hp at 6,200 rpm, a torque rating of 113 ft-lb at 4,500 rpm and a 0-62mph time of 7.8 seconds. DBA says the car was designed and engineered to be as comfortable on city streets as it is on the racetrack.

Key performance enhancements to make Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition ready for the track include a hand-ported and polished cylinder head, strengthened crankshaft, high-torque camshaft, twin-SU carburettor set-up, and limited-slip differential. Other sports-centric tuning around the car include high-performance brakes by AP Racing, sports-orientated suspension by Bilstein and a free-flowing sports exhaust system. The car is made with larger 13-inch wheels fitted with high-speed-approved tyres to maintain grip on the road or track surface. Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition is constructed with a remastered five-speed gearbox, while an automatic version is also available (offered as a four-speed set-up, with a 1,380cc engine).

A selection of unique exterior colourways are available with contrasting stripes that carry through to the interior design. A choice of Carbon Grey and Old English White base colours match the accents in either Competition Red, Royal Blue, or Heritage Green. All exterior graphics are hand-painted for an extremely high-quality finish. Monochrome, hand-enamelled badging – used by DBA in other performance limited-edition models, such as the Speedback Silverstone Edition, launched in 2018 – adorns the exterior of Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition and the look is completed with full black chrome.

The grille of the performance 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. Also on the front of the car are full LED lighting with auxiliary spotlights which provide modern and powerful beams of light. There is also the option to order the car with twin fuel tanks.

A number of new interior design options add to the performance-orientated look and feel. Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition can be ordered in either a two- or four-seat configuration, with the two-seater featuring bucket seats shaped, rear hand-trimmed roll cage, and four-point harness. An interior lined with hand-trimmed luxury leather and Alcantara materials emphasises the premium look and feel of Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition.

Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition is limited to 60 bespoke models, available in right-hand drive or left-hand drive.
