Here's a Mini that's been done right. Its owner, Luke French, started building this from a ropey shell when he was just fifteen, and it's fair to say that he's ticked all the boxes and stirred in more than a little flair. The Clubman-fronted 1275GT features a 1330cc motor that's jam-packed full of racy trinkets and sucks through a Weber 45DCOE, the chassis bristles with coilovers and Metro 4-pots, and the interior boasts the sort of spec that makes fellow Mini owners weep.
I've written a feature on this spunky little poppet, you should be able to find it in Practical Performance Car magazine before too long...
