Below is a clipping taken from a news paper, I am not sure of its origin but thanks to whoever wrote it.
Coming back down to earth with a bang, the humble Mini is, itself, already something of a cult car. But what do you do when the pint-pot classic has come to the end of its life and you don’t want to let it rust in peace? Well, fear not as the heart and spirit of your perished Mini could live pn in an A.B.S. Freestyle.
Looking like a cross between a 1960s beach buggy and a no frills trials car, the freesyle is not only cheap to buy but is also claimed to be one of the easiest kit cars on the market to build. The standard kit which includes the tubular steel chassis costs £816.63, while the on-road basic SVA kit needed to finish it is a further £1,351.25. In addition to this you will also need to source, from a donor Mini, the complete front subframe housing the suspension, brakes, A-Series engine and gearbox.
Local Freestyle distributer, Dave Smart of Wellington, claims the Freestyle will easily cruise along at the national speed limit, yet feel more alive and exciting to drive compared to many saloon cars. And because it weighs less than 600kg it can also give many offroad vehicles a thing or two to feel ashamed about when it comes to ascending steep slopes or going through water.
