Jacked up classic mini

So you like minis especially the classic mini from the first Italian job movie era. The only trouble is that with all the SUVs and offroaders you feel a bit small and lost in traffic. Also the freak weather patterns and appaling state of the roads is really putting you off owning one.

Never fear there is now an SUV version of the Mini if you are prepared to put the work in and climb up into the cabin. The amazing thing is that the handling characteristics of the original is retained. Fuel economy suffers a little but that is a small price to pay to be able to see the road ahead clearly.
