Footnotes

  • Ay caramba! The iconic Mini has long been a favourite of customisers and artists with a statement to make, and this unique example celebrates America's favourite television family, The Simpsons. This car was commissioned at the time of the release of 'The Simpsons Movie' in 2007 using a 1966 Morris Mini as the donor vehicle. New British Motor Heritage body panels replaced the originals and an upgraded and fully reconditioned 1,070cc Mini engine (producing 90bhp) was installed together with a new gearbox. The bodywork was then painted by a graphic artist, depicting characters from 'The Simpsons' on every panel before a final coat of high-sheen lacquer was applied. Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie and Grampa Simpson are all depicted together with the main supporting characters: Ned Flanders, Moe Szyslak, Barney Gumble, Lenny, Otto, Milhouse, Smithers, Mr Burns and Krusty the clown. The whole project was overseen by P&L Minis, a leading marque specialist in the UK, while the current owner has taken the project further, upgrading the interior to the exterior's standard by fitting additional polychrome leather trim, bespoke instruments and new carpets. Other noteworthy features include 10"x6" deep-dish alloy wheels shod with Yokohama tyres. Asked what the thought of the finished product, Mr Burns replied: 'Excellent!' Offered with current road fund licence, MoT to November 2011 and Swansea V5, this wonderful vehicle is sure to attract favourable attention wherever it goes.
