@ Fangio Man: I can't think of a better use for a high performance motorcycle engine than to put it under the hood of a tiny lightweight car like a Mini, that kind of power is just plain dangerous on only 2 wheels, on 4, just plain fun. :)

@Shaggy
I am glad that you like it. :D

I read you can order such a Mini with other motorcycle engines.
Even two engines in ONE car!

@ Fangio Man: Wow!, that Hayabusa powered Mini gave that Porsche 911 a run for its money, even beginning to reel it in on some straights, the car sounded insane, too.

I saw a video with a 60´s Mini with Hayabusa engine.
The manufacturer is called Z-Cars.
It is (not) road legal, but it seems you could have much fun with it.
With the motorcycle engine it is a way lighter and a bit stronger.
An really interesting idea.

Here is the video:
