Mini 52

With half a century of modifying culture behind the Mini, it's not always easy to build one that stands out. That this one has been modified single-handedly at home by a nineteen year-old is all the more impressive.
Residing in Canada, this '94 Mini was originally built in Japan and subsequently converted to LHD - the number plates that now sit on it hark back to its oriental heritage. Under the bonnet is a Honda B18C twin-cam, providing some genuinely surprising firepower from the diminutive poppet, but you can tell even from a distance that this Mini means business - just look at that footprint. Wide.
