Tuning enthusiasts from Canada decided to conjure up a classic Mini. The planned changes touched his "heart". What came of this, read below.
A bold experiment was carried out by the workers of "Specter", a well-known tuning studio in Canada. They named their project "Type 10". Despite the faint name, the very result of the specialists' work exceeds all expectations, is impressive and captivating. The masters took the classic Mini, beloved by millions as a basis. It was decided to replace its 33-horsepower unit with a 230-horsepower unit. We are talking, in particular, about the Honda K20 engine. Many times more powerful than the original, it significantly accelerated the Morris Mini.
The specialists did not stop at these changes. The main goal of their project was to make the legendary classic car rear-wheel drive. They managed to realize what they wanted. In addition to this, the Morris Mini is equipped with 10-inch wheels, special discs that allow you to remove the accumulated heat from the brake pads (for this the wheels just need to spin, which is amazing).
The design features of the finished project are impressive. A mechanical six-speed gearbox is responsible for transferring torque from the motor to the rear axle. Its main assistant is DPT (limited slip differential). The braking mechanism of the master was also not ignored. They decided to improve it by installing disc brakes of the "four piston" type on all wheels.
It is reported that the "Type 10" demonstrates excellent handling. However, in order to enjoy this feature, it is important not to exceed the permissible weight of the vehicle's equipment. It is set at 770 kg. Canadians will release 10 rear-wheel drive classic Mini cars.
