As with many of these projects our Mini Pick-up is evolving. First built in a very mad couple of weeks in the summer 2000, the Pick-up always wanted more power. Now in summer 2003 its finally getting it, thanks to Mini Farm and Mini Speed, along with a custom interior/ICE and other bits. We looked into many different options and finally decided upon the simplest, best handing high power option available - Turbo.
Using a high power modified metro turbo engine and some fancy electronic systems we hope to achieve a grand total of around 200 bhp from an A series pick-up. Will we succeed? Not sure but we are going to try.
