Under the Biota prototype's aluminium body

Just a lovely photograph from the files to share here with you, of the aluminium bodied Biota prototype without its bonnet. The big split Weber carburetor is well visible here. I also attach a unique picture of the same light green car debuting at the 1968 Racing car Show in London.

  1. I think that is neat. Could any of these - this blog and the book - be created using the newer Mini Cooper?

    I am reading an e-book version of Maximum Mini. It was on Google Books and available on the Kindle store. Amazon had it but for $827. I think it is well done. I learned much from the ones in the book.

    1. Thank you Tom. Maximum Mini volume 2 and 3 are still available right from myself (and not quite as expensive) here:
      Happy to send them out to you.
