Not convinced by the new Mini? Buy this very expensive alternative! -

The original Mini offered people a cheap way to get around. This modern take on the old Mini also takes you from A to B, but the cart is definitely not cheap...

Don't be alarmed: this sweet Mini costs no less than 145,000 euros. The classic Mini has been converted by David Brown Automotive. The company - based in Silverstone - is known for converting classic cars into new-fangled versions. Including a new electric powertrain and modern amenities.

Light as a feather

That is exactly the treatment that this Mini 'eMastered' has received from the English. The Mini has a fully electric powertrain that produces 96 hp and gives the feather-light car a sprint time of 8.5 seconds. Despite the addition of a battery pack, the eMastered only weighs 650 kilos. This means that the restomod is as heavy as when it still ran on gasoline.

The old and new Mini will never be a mileage eater: due to the modest battery pack of 18.8 kWh, you have to reach for the charger again after about 180 kilometers. It charges at 6.6 kW, which means it takes three hours to fill the small battery.

Modern conveniences

The interior has also been brought into the new millennium. The Mini eMastered has a touchscreen, can handle Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and cool air from an air conditioning system flows from the Mercedes-like ventilation grilles. David Brown Automotive has also opted for luxurious materials, such as the leather upholstery on the seats, around the gear lever, on the doors and even in the trunk.

Alternative for the rich

The Mini eMastered is so much fun that you spontaneously start eating fries from an old newspaper and drinking tea with milk. Not to speak perfect English, but to save money. How else do you get 145,000 euros? The common people are waiting for the new Mini Electric to appear in the Netherlands next year. It will be a lot more affordable.
