    Beautiful, but wrong wheels.

    You couldn't get more right than Minilites on a mini :D

    Except that the Clubman didn't have Minilites. But I get what you mean because of the name.

    Minilites were originally designed for the Mini... hence the name.
    Anyone who was anyone had Minilites on their Mini :cool:

    The Clubman had different styles of steel wheels as standard. Some just with a "decorative" centre boss. People did change the wheels for, among others, Dunlop, and Minilites. But, as nice as these are, they are not original.

    (I like them though)

    A friend saw this at an auto fair. The ex Middlesbrough Mayor's car apparently.

    Best sighting of the day so far in Portugal, a Datsun 1300 with elderly driver. Totally has that ‘one owner from new’ vibe.

    I had a girlfriend who bought a brand new vitara; must be the worst thing I have ever driven.

    My example was jinxed. I bought it off a mate who was a mechanic at a slightly sketchy garage. I only had it a week. It leaked oil, rattled, the starter would only do it's thing if I got out and gave it a whack with the wheel brace. And it had a funny smell. None of my mates felt comfortable riding in it. I put it in the local free ads and sold it for £100 more than I paid for it. I later found out that that car had been used in a robbery/murder and had been crashed in the process!:eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

    I had a convertible version of that. It was bloody brilliant. Never used in an armed robbery though, perhaps that was the difference.

    I had a mate that had a 1.8 engined one which was fairly rapid.

    How about a nice Renault 4. I never saw the point of them in the first place but I know where this is on sale for a mere 10K

    Interesting air intake. Not optimal placement for cold air flow, and would they have even used cone filters like this in a rally environment?

    I didn't say it was a perfect replica. ;)

    Just a pretty nicely done replica with gobbins of squirt, if I had that sort of money I would definitely have a closer look though.

    Iconic car for sure, but that looks wrong.

    Also, rally cars often don’t use poly bushes as the durometer rating is so hard it can transfer too much stress to even the toughest of seam-welded shells.

    It isn't a rally car, the 200 SWB S1s were made for the road, paying customers, most are in private collections around the world and fetch upwards of 300k when and where they do come up for sale, same as the Lancia Delta S4, there were 200 of those made for the road also fetching the same sort of price. Ford RS200s also.
