Project Binky - Episode 1 - Austin Mini GT-Four - Turbo Charged 4WD Mini
In the first episode of Project Binky, we take a rotten old Austin Mini and
strip it down to a bare shell. We then take an angle grinder to it and cut
it to pieces. It's only then that the customised rebuilding process starts.
We're trying to create one of the fastest Minis on the planet. We're going
to rebuild it with the engine and running gear from a Toyota Celica ST185
GT4. Or at least that's the plan. Whether it comes off or not is another
matter. We're filming this as it happens so what you see is only a few
weeks behind where we're actually at so we're not sure yet whether we can
do it. That's kind of the fun though.
Stick with us through the highs and the lows of the project. Hopefully
it'll be worth the agony and cash.
Feel free to share it far and wide!
Thanks for watching.
World's fastest Minis - Mini JCW GP vs ZCars Mini Busa - autocar.co.uk
The Mini JCW GP is the fastest production Mini ever built, according to
BMW. They may well be right, but we've found what could be the fastest Mini
ever, the ZCars Mini Busa.
SUBSCRIBE to Autocar:
The Mini JCW GP is the ultimate incarnation of the latest Mini, with 215bhp
from its turbocharged 1.6-litre engine
launching it to 62mph in 6.2 seconds. But is it the fastest Mini you can
buy? Its competition could be a kit car from the North East of England
called the ZCars Mini Busa. It features a tubular construction and
fibreglass panels resulting in a 550kg kerbweight and a 0-60mph sprint of
3.9 seconds thanks to its screaming 194bhp Suzuki Hayabusa superbike
