It takes 1400 hours to turn a donor car into a Mini Remastered. The only components that are carried over from the donor are the engine and gearbox, both of which are rebuilt, and the VIN. Everything else, including the bodyshell, is brand new. The shell itself is stiffened with additional structural bracing and the Mini’s various gutters and seams are reprofiled or removed entirely to clean up the styling.
As Singer Vehicle Design has demonstrated with its reimagined 911s, there’s enormous appetite out there for iconic cars that have been made more usable with modern technology and updated with a fresh aesthetic. Given how adored the original Mini is, it’s hardly a surprise that a Mini without the inconveniences has proven to be so popular.
