We are still pinching ourselves with how lucky we are to be able to experience and to sell this incredible, never to be repeated and of extremely high quality turbocharged Mini van.
I will attempt to explain the concept and then will include my own wording to convey just what a great car this is, however, please do not call and ask technical questions but rather come here yourself to fully appreciate and understand this vehicle.
It's ridiculous just how these once work-mobiles of the 70’s and 80’s have now become one of the most in demand and street cool vehicles of today. But that’s just the standard vehicle!
For the ultimate ride and power experience of any Mini van ever produced, this has been lavished with expense and quality stuff and no wonder it has been the rightful winner of many a Concours show in its recent years.
So, what do we know about the works to the vehicle? It’s a ground up restoration project of huge skill and craftsmanship. We are informed that it was a 10 year project by the once owner and his team which totalled no less than 3,000 man hours. Incredible.
Fully restored and strengthened, seam sealed and Dinitrol waxed, followed by a very high end professional ten coats paint in a unique colour believed to be called Chartreuse Green with a Snow Berry white roof.
The engine is a highly modified Metro 1300 turbo unit which includes Methanol injection producing 116BHP @5600 RPM. There is a list as long as your arm of what else has been done to this engine.
The interior is lavish and not dissimilar to a Bentley with Connolly hide and Elm wood a plenty. The rear area is no less impressive sporting more leather and deep pile carpeting.
This vehicle is supplied with a fully documented build history and photographic album that in itself, is a work of art. It includes a wiring diagram, component handbook, suspension, engine, ignition and boost controller settings, a build CD, magazine feature, laptop to programme Megatune software for use with Megasquirt. The list goes on.
Offered for sale at a fraction of its estimated build/parts/labour cost (excess of £100,000). This is a Mini, not to be missed.
Fairmont Sports and Classics will gladly supply this vehicle with an MOT, a fresh oil and filter service and prospective buyers are welcome to view the vehicle’s underside.
