Slim-line chairman in cut-down car

Ian in mini MiniMGMW chairman, Ian Donaldson, has visibly shrunk over the past couple of years so he had no difficulty squeezing his new slim-line frame into this cut-down Mini. The car belongs to a colleague of Ian's and is believed to be one of only a few ever made, though details of its heritage are unknown.

While the top-down look makes it ideal for the upcoming summer months, Ian reports that the shortened wheelbase did make the Mini "rather twitchy" over the local lanes. We suspect a whole new dimension to the concept of body-flex.

Meanwhile, Ian has vowed to stay off the chips for a bit longer.
