Take a 1962 body shell, leave the cart-horse suspension at the back, make a few styling tweaks to the wings and lights etc and stick some walnut and leather inside the cockpit, then give it some outdated cast-off V8 block and sell it for similar money to a TVR! Not surprising the British stayed away in droves and left it to the Anglophillic Japanese to take most of them.
And the transmission was rubbish - hence dropped on the R56. Did the MINI no favours at all but should probably suit the aged MG.Seamaster said:Same CVT used in the faux "MINI", if memory serves.
