    ***Carbon '72 C20XE Mini***

    Well here's something a little different for you.

    This is my friend Dougie's car that we have been building for the last 2 years. We have been hard at it as you will appreciate below.

    This build has been kept under wraps since we started and this is the first time these pictures have been released.

    Breif history is it was Dougies Grandfathers car from new in 1972, it stayed in the family until 1991 when Dougie sold it. Then in 2008 he found it again with only 120miles extra on the clock since he sold it, but in a sorry state, he then bought it back, which is where the fun began.

    Thought you would appreciate a couple of build pics and Spec prior to London to Brighton.

    Its still being run in so no power figures as yet, but it should be in the region of 200-220bhp, not bad when it weighs around 700kg.

    Keep and eye out for the official build thread.

    Enjoy......

    wow! what a cracking looking little car! That bonnet is amazing with the engine poking out, it looks as if the bonnet and the head are all the one.

    Fair play.
