The Mengers Beach Mini:-
https://www.mini-men...ers-beach-mini/

(Also featured in the Sep 2022 issue of Mini Magazine)

"Mengers represents a registered brandname. All vehicles leaving our manufactory are uniquely numbered and receive a type plate for identification purposes. The converted Mini keeps the original classic Mini platform's identification number. The end-price of the vehicle will include the donor platform acquisition costs. The German warranty law has inspired us to fully rework our Mini-offerings, based on expectations of high quality and detail. Benefit from our experience. We guarantee you receiving a fully adequate equivalent to the price you pay. Our aim is maximum client satisfaction. Contact us today or if you're even planning a trip to our area, feel free to visit us! Usually you can find around 20 - 30 Minis inside our showroom and the workshop close-by. After you selected a vehicle we'll gladly submit a financing offer developed based on your preferences."

Some interesting stuff on their options list but a 3 wheeler... kill it with fire! Omg

Well some might like it but it's not for me

They managed to make the 4 door look acceptable though in my opinion

I quite like the four door, its looks like its got that little bit extra room in the rear, the six wheel  Moke  looks interesting,

Its nice, but it reminds me of the David Brown Minis... very rich people taking an original Mini, and transforming it into something completely new.

You could say that about every new car,taking an Austin seven and turning it into a trinket laden chariot of blazing light.Steve..

Indeed the 3 door is a hideous monstrosity.

But BMC did produce almost identical Beach Minis in the early 1960's....

I have been to Mengers Garage and the work on the cars is as good as the photos and the prices reflect this. I wonder if those who bemoan the price would criticise the restoration of a Wood and Picket or Radford both just as expensive in there day , play things for those with deep pockets.
