Rotary Clubman

This is some next-level modifying - possibly the coolest car I've seen this year.
From the outside it appears to be a standard (bodily-speaking, that is) Mini Clubman Estate, sitting improbably low over a set of Performance Challenger rims - it's even painted in a gloriously nineteen-seventies-esque Leyland shade of bilious green. But under the skin, hundreds upon hundreds of hours have gone into turning this unassuming base into an incredibly effective drag racer; the spaceframed nose holds a Mazda 12A rotary engine, while the custom chassis ensures that the bespoke suspension, tubbed arches, fuel cell, rollcage and all of the other toys hide cunningly within the car's factory-standard footprint. In a word, sensational.
