From utilities over to sports racers. Mini based sports racers, mind you. This mysterious example was found in the US a couple of years ago with no one knowing what its background could be. One thing was certain though: there was a Mini engine lurking behind the seat, driving the rear wheels through long drive shafts. Question is whether it had been there originally, as it doesn't seem too well connected. On the other hand it does fit in the spaceframe chassis nicely and comes with an exhaust that seemed especially made for it. Who knows more about this intriguing American racing special?

Voloptuous and low bodywork reminds perhaps of Elva's early racers? It is RHD
Wide wheels and fat tyres. Exhausts poking from rear must make it seriously noisy
That's a Mini engine for sure, canted forwards like in the Landar R6 and R7
Suspension at the rear uses double wishbones. Note long drive shafts
