Mid-Engined, Honda-Powered Mini? Yes!

The Kimini was conceived by Kurt Bielinski, and he's covered its design and construction exhaustively on his website. So what is it? Simply put, it's a tube-frame, carbon-fiber-bodied Mini with a mid-mounted Honda mill that does 0-60 in 4.6 seconds. Over the last decade, he's invested 3,000 hours and around 20,000 bucks. But watching the videos of him playing with, we've gotta say we think Kurt must find all of the effort worthwhile. Simply put, this little bombshell rocks. [Thanks to Pete for the tip.]
