The one that was for sale on eBay and on here for £30k? Yeah, saw it yesterday. 400bhp and half a second slower than me on the 1/4 mile. The best time it got yesterday was 15 seconds. I was beating that with a stock JCW a couple of years ago.

I think the price has been lowered to £27k now :rolleyes:

I think he had one go yesterday and gave up. I would too if I had spent a small fortune for a vtec enginei n a MINI and couldnt get a decent time.

I think they are talking about the R53 MINI, with a 400 or 450bhp VTEC engine that couldnt run better than 15.0 on Sunday at Mini Showdown in Stratford.

Total different beast to the normal z-cars.
