As we traverse the thrilling path of automotive evolution, David Brown Automotive emerges as a beacon of timeless British craftsmanship, with music mogul Simon Cowell being among its distinguished early patrons.
One might wonder about the enchanting aura of the classic Mini. The answer lies in its most recent, electrified avatar – the Mini eMastered. This engineering marvel is not just another car; it’s a testament to David Brown Automotive’s relentless pursuit of perfection. This ethos resonated with the esteemed music impresario and television icon, Simon Cowell, leading to the inception of a bespoke Mini eMastered that now stands as a gleaming jewel in his collection.
With the delicate hands of master craftsmen pouring in hundreds of hours, Cowell’s Mini eMastered, grounded in a robust and streamlined shell, is adorned with intricate details that exude luxury. Nestled within this automotive marvel is a simple yet groundbreaking EV powertrain.

However, the allure of electrification was irresistible, prompting a transformation into the eMastered version.

This electrified iteration, astonishingly, mirrors the weight of its petrol ancestor, ensuring that the iconic ‘go-kart’ essence remains untouched. Its efficiency? An impressive 110 miles on a single charge, with a recharge time of just 3 hours.
