In very simple terms, we placed the Mini shell on the new chassis, added an engine and wired it up. I really wish it was as easy as that! A lot of blood, sweat, tears and scuffed knuckles have gone into getting Sumini on the road, she still remains an on-going project – like all classic cars!
Weighing in at 920 kilos Sumini really is a Sumo compared to the Classic Mini weight of 580 kilos. At 5ft 7” Sumini’s impressive stance towers over a Classic Mini roof height of 4ft 5”.
In 2017 Sumini was finally repainted a new red in preparation for display at Chris Evan’s Carfest South.
Sumini made her debut at the London Motor Show in 2018.
