WOW! Here is an example, not for the purist, but for the sports `minded! This little Mini is powered by the Honda V-Tec twin cam, with 5-speed, all heim jointed adjustable suspension, all the "go-fast" goodies to make this a terrific track day car or very fast street car! VERY quick, VERY fun! This build cost was $40,000 USD. In Southern California, USA.
