I would image the MPower derivative to have a BMW engine in it. Be interesting to see how they get it to fit, as BMW couldn't......mini philly said:How about not just an M power version, but one powered by a 200 BHP 4 cylinder BMW engine in place of the Chrysler unit?
Wonder what rover did with all the presses.........You can buy new Midgets now with Heritage bodyshells and K-Series Engines, is anyone still making the mini in it's, how can i put it...."native" form ?Clutch Cargo said:
In other words, something more like the classic Mini.
There was talk several years ago when the classic Mini went out of production of British Motor Heritage (who was making the old MGB, Midget, TR6, Mini, etc. bodyshells) might consider making a production line of the 'new' old classic Minis to order, but I think that got messed up when BMW sold MG/Rover, Ford bought Land Rover, etc. Still, if you really wanted a brand new 'old' Mini, it would be easy enough to obtain all the parts needed together, put them in a pile, and assemble one yourself. However, the cost of all the parts themselves will far exceed the value of the car.Basil said:

Well, there already is that tie-in with the other nostalgic F1 constructor champion.
