R1 Mini: Yes Please
Awesome little car I saw on Bring a Trailer:
Here it is on eBay:
Seems like a lot of fun for not a lot of money!
sounds a lot like this one. What I'd like to see is about the same thing with some boost
yeah there's a dude on the R1-forum who built a go cart using an R1 engine... paddle shifters and all.. damn thing flies.!! love it!!
but the Smart conversion takes the cake... road ready...
There's a twin r1 motored mini on YouTube that looks like its twice as much fun,also on the island a guys building Suzuki 1300 powered caterham super 7 cars
$65k for one new, $20-25k used in the UK but you can't import. Local ones are built in Chemainus on the Island - http://www.super7cars.com/
