2 Sets Of Wheels and Tires

This is a car we don't see often. This one is powered by a Honda Spoon Racing engine. The Spoon Engine is a naturally aspirated, single overhead camshaft, 4 cylinder unit that develops 118bhp of power at 6600 rpm, and a maximum torque of 145N-m (107lb -ft/14.8kgm) at 4800 rpm. The engine supplies it's power through to the wheels via a manual 5 speed transmission.

Built to race, this little Mini was outfitted with this Spoon Engine just for speed. These engines are hand built in Japan by Spoon Sports. They are fast, reliable, and expensive.   The Austin Mini Countryman is a very collectible car on it's own. This one is modified, but still maintains a great deal of it's original body and frame as far as we know. 

This is the Austin Mini Countryman model with a full rear seat and vertical rear doors.    The doors seem to be solid and we don't see any major signs of rust, but we did not do the work on it and just describe what we see.  There are a few spots on the car that need addressing, but nothing serious.    The cover for the door lock is missing on the drive's side.   We were told this is the mileage since restoration.   The a/c blows very cold in this little car.    Someone put a great sound system in the car. You can definitely hear it over the sound of the engine. 

There is a little bit of pitting on the chrome wheels, but there is a second set of aluminum wheels that go with the car.    The original VIN tag is intact, and matches the tile.    This complete set of tires and wheels come with the car, but as you can see, they have curb rash. We believe a good wheel shop may be able to repair these. Mini Mania sells these wheels for $271. each, so if they are repairable it's a great savings.   There is a hole is at the top of the front passenger side above the windshield.    There are clubs that actually race these little Mini Coopers. This would be a great one to race on weekends.   There are a few cracks along the upper edge of the hood.
