Featuring unique styling and audio upgrades inspired by David Brown Automotive Marshall Amplification, Ready to Release a New, Limited-Driven Version of His Classic Mini RestoMode. The British audio company is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, and David Brown released a teaser image of the new model before its full unveiling next week.

Marshall’s inspiration was immediately apparent: David Brown gave the car a gold front grille mesh to mimic Marshall’s iconic, retro amplifier. The car in this teaser is painted in metallic gray, but Restomode experts say other colors will be available exclusively for the Marshall version.

The theme continues inside – the dashboard fascia and paddles are painted satin gold, with the same shade for sewing and pinstripping along the leather upholstery. The marshal logo is also sewn on the backrest of the seat.

Surprisingly, a bespoke audio set-up will come as part of an upgrade with a new system envisioned by Marshall Engineers.

Like other mini-remastered models, the new limited-powered version will be based on a fully restored, high-performance classic mini with a powerful shell, a finely tweaked exterior and a more sophisticated cabin.

DBA modernizes each car with an infotainment touchscreen, LED headlights, electric windows and keyless go, making life easier with smaller front wheel-drive hatches.

Also key is an operated engine, which this Marshall-inspired model can borrow from the car’s high-performance Osile version. This means a 1,450cc A-series motor that is fed by a twin SU carburetor for 123bhp, drives through a five-speed gearbox and delivers 0-62mph in 7.8 seconds.

The Oselli version weighs about 700kg, but is expected to pack an extra few kilos of the recent iteration for the upgraded hi-fi setup. Expect to be featured in DBA’s upgraded AP Racing Four-Pot Brake Set-Up and Racer Bilstein Suspension Marshall Edition.

We don’t know how much the DBA’s Marshall-inspired mini is going to cost, but the Oselli version was limited to just 60 instances below £ 100,000. For each unit sold, DBA and the Marshall Music Trust will pledge a grant to the venue, which is working to revive Britain’s independent music scene after the epidemic.
