First Drive: David Brown Automotive Mini Remastered

Few cars have a fan base as loyal, as passionate about the object of their affections, as the original Mini. A post-war small car built by BMC along austerity measures, with baldly utilitarian aims of maximising internal space while minimising external space, it caught an unforeseen cultural wave in the Sixties and rode the wave of the fun-loving, libertine, sexy urban Zeitgeist to perfection. Think Italian Job, think Carnaby Street, Mary Quant, George Harrison, Mick Jagger…it’s one of the few 20th-century cars to truly earn the description “iconic”.
