British-styled Mini Remastered to be on display for one month until 28th June

David Brown Automotive is delighted to announce that it has partnered with LINLEY to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, uniting two iconic British brands that sit at the pinnacle of craftsmanship, design and luxury.

To mark this momentous event in British history, an example of David Brown Automotive’s Mini Remastered will be displayed in LINLEY’s flagship London showroom in Belgravia, set amongst their exquisite furniture and painstakingly crafted decorative pieces. David Brown Automotive’s Mini Remastered – a modern example of one of Britain’s most loved automotive designs, handbuilt at its high-technology facility at Silverstone – will be on show in the capital’s heartland of design and decorative arts, for one month from now.

The Mini Remastered in question will sport a fitting specification for the Queen’s 70th Jubilee, with a refined, unmistakably British specification: finished in David Brown Automotive’s own modern take on the classic hue of Old English White, complemented by a Union Flag-adorned, hand-painted roof. Just as with the immaculate finish of LINLEY products, the gleaming paint of this Mini Remastered is perfected over hundreds of hours by David Brown Automotive’s expert automotive technicians.

Each David Brown Automotive creation, whether Mini Remastered, the ultra high-performance Mini Remastered, Oselli Edition, or Speedback GT grand tourer, is entirely handbuilt in accordance with the rich tradition of British coachbuilding. As with every LINLEY piece crafted, each Mini Remastered which leaves the David Brown Automotive’s build facility is imbued with a depth of engineering and quality, using the very finest materials.

LINLEY Creative Director, Michael Keech, said: “This Jubilee partnership will unite two British companies that are closely aligned in their values, driven by a passion to create design led, carefully handcrafted and peerlessly engineered products; whether a handbuilt, modernised Mini Remastered or a LINLEY hand-finished bespoke cabinet – both also delight in tradition whilst fitting seamlessly into modern life.

“LINLEY and David Brown Automotive are both focussed on taking luxury design to new heights, they are also committed to nurturing Britain’s rich tradition of handcraftsmanship.”

Michelle Gay, Sales & Marketing Director at David Brown Automotive, said:
“From the expertly trained coachbuilders who leave their individual mark on each motor car that is born in our Silverstone build facility, to the master joiners and woodworkers that artfully elevate each LINLEY object; we think it’s crucial to preserve the uniquely British discipline of artisan, handbuilt creations.

“This country has a long history of products that combine design ingenuity and beauty, with the utmost quality and craftsmanship. We like to think that a bespoke, entirely rebuilt Mini Remastered or a hand-finished LINLEY piece continues this proud lineage; standing out as emblems of what Britain’s world-leading craftspeople can produce. At the time of Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, it feels fitting to celebrate the rich artistry that exists in this country, and to ensure it is nurtured and preserved for generations to come.”

David Brown Automotive and LINLEY’s show of Britain’s design and craftsmanship will be displayed in the LINLEY showroom on Pimlico Road throughout the month of June, as Jubilee celebrations unfold around the country. Visitors are welcome to visit the showroom to view the Mini Remastered, the full LINLEY collection and learn more about the partnership.
