It looks very nice, but, no offence to it, for all that money, it's got no competition history.

A mate of mine was at university in Edgbaston in the late 1980s. One of his fellow students actually won a 6R4 in a magazine competition and used to drive it to the uni as his car!

when grpB was canned pretty sure these were sold off for around £10K or so...........certainly wasn't supercar money

that one didn't even start life as a "car" but was built from a new shell

Oh and just for Nerd value they basically use 3/4's of a Rover V8 and in later Twin Turbo form it became the Jaguar XJ220 propulsion.........

seems my recall isn't quite exact, its was the development hack that used a chopped down Rover V8 and then ultimately an all alloy V6

Always dreamt of doing that with my wife’s 2005 Mini Cooper, likely with an M3 Engine. Plus throwing in some 4x4. Proper sleeper.

I've not been everywhere, but it's on my list.....

Look up Project Binky on YouTube. Two very entertaining guys shoehorning the 2L engine (200bhp+) and 4WD running gear from a Toyota Celica into an original Mini. Apart from the entertainment value, the quality of the engineering is outstanding. Darren
