Derek (doomus), this is for you. I know you haven’t been a huge fan of the J5 wheels. I would not call them my favorite, but I don’t mind them either, and I think they look pretty darn nice on some models.
Here? They look fantastic! And I hope you agree. Maybe it is the white rims. Maybe it is the white rims with the dark green body and white trim. Maybe the low stance. Whatever it is, this is one cool model. Derek, we await your opinion…
We have known this model was in the works for some time, and one that compliments its Mini Cooper Rally partner quite well. What I did not expect was all the detail, not only in the casting, but in the tampo design. Roof, hood, sides, rear…they are detailed. Then you combine all that with the white J5s and the super low stance, and you have a sure winner. If it weren’t for that fantastic Celica, this would easily be my favorite New Model in the batch…
By the way, I may have to take more photos of this Mini once the snow comes.
