My Janspeed Mini Cooper-S
This is the highlights of my Janspeed Mini Cooper S car that was used in the famous enthusiast video Janspeed DIY Mini, produced by my company. The car was stripped down to the last nut and bolt. It was designed by their race team along with the legendary David Vizard and then built by Janspeed's race engine builders. Even the body was rebuilt from scratch! The car also featured in a magazine article as one of the fastest ever road Minis! It's a blindingly quick car and will easily embarrass many hot hatches of today. See the details on its website.

The mini is, quite simply, the most popular British car ever built, and even more importantly, has become a classic British Icon. This programme is a true celebration of the mini in every conceivable form. With the help of a dedicated group of mini enthusiasts, step back in time and discover the secrets of this much loved little car's success. Hear the story of the mini's development dating back to Issigonis' groundbreaking design of the late 1950's, right up to BMW's brand new MINI of the 21st Century, whilst enjoying a rare opportunity to see a whole host of mini's, up close and personal. They say that anybody who remembers the 1960's couldn't actually have been there, so for anyone in need of a reminder, this trip down memory lane to the mini's glory years will be a nostalgic treat not to be missed. From the drawing board of Issigonis to the legend that now is the thoroughly modern MINI, this is great British design at its brilliant best, timeless, treasured and an inspiration.
