    That's cheating

    It's plan 'B' but the extra room a Clubman front gives is just unbelievable having mocked one up in a moment of despair. I actually don't mind a Clubman front but still trying to keep it round nose and standard length.

    Cheers

    Easy! Use a standard length clubman front!

    About 138bhp and 130 lb/ft

    The bulkhead mod would be interesting as Daihatsus have flat bulkheads so there must be some serious mods behind the engine !

    Wow that makes my engine bay look spacious and it looks like this one has an extended front. Neat but full of engine. What HP and torque is that in English?

    Japanese Hybrid Mini

    The general view is that the Japanese like their Minis the retro the better but I just stumbled across this beastie
