MK VI Road Car
A winner from the start !
This is the car that put sporting fun back into everyday motoring and still achieves superb road handling and fuel efficiency. Using the original and readily available BMC Mini for its donor parts, this fun to build road specified car is easy to build and affordable.
The well made lightweight monocoque shell combined with your own choice of engine, gearbox and final drive ratio mean that you can create a car that combines all the fun of modern motoring with a classic that you can really put through its paces. Wide track 12/13" wheels help to give exceptional grip and confidence of handling.
Styled for comfort
The demand for greater comfort has resulted in a more sophisticated interior giving more legroom from the racing position of the seats. The interior is uncluttered and there is the option of a carbon or full walnut dash to enhance the appearance and house the multiple instrument options. A neat glove box gives additional storage.
The choice is yours
6 classic colours from blue black to 80's orange and a broad choice of optional extras including sports sears will ensure that the car will be uniquely yours. Just add your choice of power train and suspension and you will have a classic that will once again withstand the test of time as all true greats have historically done.
A classic from any angle
The car was always built for a fun and exhilarating road experience and the classis lines emphasise this in a way that sits comfortably with the modern car alternatives on the roads today.
