The new classic Mini has proved to be a success.
The project Mini Remastered of David Brown Automotive has been a success greater than expected. If less than two months ago is presented with the intention of producing about 250 copies in total at a pace of about 100 units per year, in just the first day after your presentation, there were already more than 650 firm orders, some from areas as remote as Australia or Japan. Currently, and after less than two months, the small british company builds up more than 2,000 orders.
This demand has been a surprise to the company, that there was no labeling cheap precisely the model. According to versions, each one of these little classics cost between 75,000 and 85,000 Pounds Sterling before tax, what are between 85.886 and 97.337 euros at current exchange. Says the company, are accepting deposits of £ 2,000 (2.290 euros) and the phone still does not stop ringing.
This means that, at least for the time being, the company will have to multiply nearly ten times its scheduled production, a success unparalleled in the industry.
The Mini-Remastered is completely new, but it has trick.
How it has achieved David Brown to sell these little classics remastered without conflict with the rights of the author of the original model is very simple, because although we can consider them as new vehicles, officially only restores and reshapes. Although almost all of the items are new bill, body, including, David Brown created from the scenes already existing, so legally they are only vehicles restored.
This stroke of genius prevents Davis Brown has had that negotiate or pay any kind of right, despite the fact that you plan to manufacture in series, but by hand.
The Mini-Remastered has mechanical elements, and current technological, with a catalog of highly customizable. The bodywork is completely new and is the work of British Motor Heritage, a british company that has years of manufacturing this type of products to restaurateurs and specialist workshops. Each of these sets is available, in limited quantities, by 9.950 Pounds, an estimated 11,600 euros.
