Project Binky AWD Mini GT-Four Is Back: Episode 5

Follow Nelson

Project Binky is the brainchild of the guys at Bad Obsession Motorsport in the UK. Combining an Austin Mini with a Toyota Celica GT-Four's drivetrain and suspension, while building a race-worthy structure along the way. It's an incredible dive into the world of highly custom engineering and fabrication.

Catch up on the backstory of Project Binky if you aren't current--otherwise, Episode 5 brings you a look at the final structural work on the chassis, from the bulkhead to the rear wheel arches.

Progress has moved from the two separate donor cars, the Mini rusty and worn out, and the GT-Four tired but serviceable, to the single, nearly unified--and soon, hopefully, driving--Binky.

Coating all of this mechanical and metallurgical excellence is a dry and friendly humor that turns a lesson into a learning.
