I caught the repeat edition of of Fifth Gear yesterday, I thought as a tv series it had died but this was the 1st episode of the new series, it has moved from C5 to Quest and it featured a piece with minis.
There was an electric mini which had a strange spec which reminded me of my 1985 City E and a plush David Brown coach built mini. Both had price tags over £80k, but that said it was still good to see them being driven by Vicki Butler Henderson.
This is available on Quest's website www.questod.co.uk/show/fifth-gear
There's also an episode on Netflix of a series called 'Fastest Car' featuring a Mini. The idea of the series is to have a drag race between an off the peg 'supercar' (usually a Lambo, Ferrari, Maclaren) and three home built street racers.
The mini appears in series 2 episode 4 and performs very well in the race (I don't want to spoil it for anyone who might watch it).
