YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO: MORRIS MINOR
Your summer convertible and track day toy, all in one
This clearly isnít a standard Morris Minor. In fact itís impossible to know where to begin with explaining the modifications made this car, such is the huge scope of the overhaul.
Itís built on a carbon fibre spaceframe for huge torsional stiffness (presumably never a Minor strong point) and is 178mm wider than an original car. The attention to detail and use of quality components is staggering; Koni adjustable dampers have been fitted at a reported cost of £300 a corner and 280mm AP Racing discs provide braking power at the front. The rear brakes are from a Sierra Cosworth, too, so you certainly wonít struggle to stop.
Those brakes will certainly be required in this Minor, as it is powered by a 190hp 2.0-litre
The inside has also been subject to a meticulous update; there are Momo seats, Stack instruments and, particularly useful given the current prevailing weather conditions, a new mohair hood. Seemingly no stone has been left unturned in attempting to make the ultimate Morris Minor; we'v not even mentioned the bare-metal respray, the limited-slip differential, or the AP Racing clutch.
This Minor has undoubtedly been subjected to an extremely thorough and professional modification job, and would surely prove enormous fun as both a track and road car. Yes, it is £14,000, but youíll never have to pay for a tax disc or an MOT, and it only costs the current owner £250 to insure!
