We love a modified Mini. Like many, I cut my teeth on Minis as a lad. They were plentiful, cheap, easy to modify and it felt like you were driving a rally car every time you nipped to the shops! Must admit, though, that I never took the plunge to stick a Vauxhall Red Top in one…
From the seller: “Welcome to the sale of my ridiculously fast 2.0 xe red top mini, producing 270bhp.
Kad disc brakes all round, full weld in cage, electronic power steering no rust at all, 5 speed gearbox and definitely not for the faint hearted as it has a 270 bhp JRE engine which is frightening to drive.
It has 48 jenvey throttle bodies, Perspex windows, receipts for £22,000.
I’ve only had it a short while and was planning on keeping it, but after driving it I realise that I’m too old for it and have too many projects.”
