It is also throwing out the prospect of some Mini Remastered racing by saying matching race suits and helmets will be available as optional extras.
CEO and company founder David Brown tells us: “The classic Mini has a rich racing heritage and our new car gives customers yet another reason to want to own a Mini Remastered now that we are also catering for the performance market.”
What else can we expect? Handbuilt British craftsmanship, luxury materials, hi-tech infotainment and connectivity, and of course the familiar Mini proportions and shape, but with the all-new body panels “de-seamed” for a smooth new looks with tight panel gaps that BMC and successors could only dream of.
There’s no word yet on what it will be called – you can bet it won’t be Cooper S though. Previously DB’s modern-day Minis have appeared in special edition forms called Monte Carlo and Café Racer.
We will find out more, including the price – standard versions cost around £90k plus taxes – ahead of the Revival, as well as full renderings of the car. David Brown Automotive will also be exhibiting 'Over The Road' at the Revival, although sadly not with the modern-classic Mini hot hatch. Regardless, it might look classic but, in terms of tech, this is one Mini that’s definitely post 1966!
