i like the angle of the lambo chasing the minis round the track they just might go for something like that
you are right they need to be steel bodied ones
ive got some contacts i will try sort something out
chris


do you think a steel bodied Z Cars mini would stand a chance? it must be a close run thing, Maybe a Hyabusa turbo would suffice!!!!

The spectical would be amazing, £15,000 worth of British enginered mini on a par with or beating an Italian £100,000 supercar!

I still think a steel bodied Z Car should be good enough :techsupport: . Maybe Chris and the team could produce an all winning Top Gear Special for the occasion!!! :thumbsup:

Yeah, the one Clarkson did on the show was the JKD / Cooper Works built Mini Hotrod, and teh twin cam motor was also JKD...you can find the vid on youtube.

The only (non standard) mini that Clarkson did a feature on was the twincam A-series that John Cooper Garages built in the late 90's(the reg was HI5 FUN, it was green and had the KAD twin cam head. Very quick for the A-series). And he was going mad for it!!! Imagine if he'd driven a z-car?!!

Fifth gear did do a great little feature on the mini once. They mainly covered the mini45 show but the best little bit was when they went out in the zcars/holeshot birhtchild. It's a silver zcars bike-engine package with a Holeshot Racing (Holeshot are well known and respected for building racing bikes) fully sorted, hyabusa turbo!

AND, the best footage of that car is in the first Minifilms DVD. I think that has to be one of the most awesome bike-engined minis for the road I've ever seen. When that car powers out of a bend with Bill Sollis at the wheel, the inside front wheel is off the ground!!!!!!!!!!!!


Amazing.


Adam

PS. I have that fifth gear mini special recorded on VHS. Might try an get it onto DVD and cut out the rest of the *rubbish* if anyone would be interested in seeing it...


I think I remember that mini, it was called 'Hotrod', sorry to split hairs but I don't think it was registered H15 FUN, that was Mike Coopers car of John Coopers Garages. Rover built the Hotrod at a reputed cost of £30,000 back then!!, I think they also built a luxury one at the same time called the 'mini Limo' to celabrate the mini's 40th birthday. Clarkson was indeed loving it, I think he would wet his pants in a Z cars mini, 0 - 100mph in 8 or 9 secs loverly!!!

I would defo be intrested in seeing the appearance on Fifth Gear I've never seen that one :)
