Default Busa @R1 powered conversion kits for Mini

With 400hp, and a huge power to weight ratio, the busa powered Mini could be pretty spiffy.

The 400 bhp at crank mini does 0-60mph in 3.4 secs with terminal speed of 130 mph costs £18000

The 180 bhp at crank mini does 0-60mph in 3.5 secs with Max speed of 125 mph costs £7,900 thats more than twice lesser the cost of the turbo mini... with almost similar performance...

nevertheless good car, hope the mini can handle that power with no issues... nice find prasadee.

seen the car called Tiger z100, test driven by tiff needel ( 5th gear ) ??? ...400 bhp, 1200lbs, 0-60mph in 2.97 secs, well this car too has similar performances, however this one has 2 engines ( Kawasaki 1200cc ) as compared to the mini which has a single engine... the tiger costs 40,000 pounds ...

Yeah, the tiger also featured in an Automedia article.



Then theres the Westfield MegaBusa and the Catherham Blackbird (donor bikes are obvious)
