am certain that Z cars did a twin Hayabusa mini with them both in the rear. It used to be an option on their website.

they did it to an elise, but i though the hyabusa was too big for 2 in the rear, or even 1 up front.

or maybe 2 might fit in the rear : :proud:

Holy Tits - V8 hyabusa is that? where did u find that - i must know more!


Regards the twin bike engine jobie i've seen two - or they may be the same one, just different colours. There was a bright yellow one in one of the ultimate mini DVD's and there was a red one featured in one of the minimags a few years ago. Both of these cars where R1's tho.
