Just seen this widened mini, had to get a photo as I drove past, never seen anything like it.
No one around to talk to about it.
It almost looks photo shopped even seeing it in the flesh.

There was also this BMC 'Maxi Mini' in 1968. A showroom display concept.

The BMC MaxiMini was used for BMC publicity displays and consisted of a central spacer section fitted inbetween two standard Mini's.

Looking at the front end picture I'd imagined that the engine might be mounted centrally in the engine bay, not over on the offside, must have one hell of a long nearside drive shaft.

nothing wrong with a wide moke, but I'm a bit bias. :-)

You can cut laminated glass, it's how they made front and rear screens for Mini sprints out of ordinary front screens. I guess, if it's road legal, somebody found a commercial coach or truck with a similar profile.
