A similar, rear-engined, Mini-powered car was the Deep-Sanderson.

In 1964, the D-S team ran one of their cars at LeMans and clocked over 150 mph with an early version of the 1275 "A" series Mini engine.

Wow. Must be quite a slippery shape?

The Unipower is awesome, too. I want a car with the shifter in the door sill.
