Spotted this one for sale, the Riley Elf station wagon that was never made by the factory, needs some finishing but neat concept by the builder

Since we are speaking about custom Minis, here's a custom New-MINI I saw at Lime Rock. It has a split, speedster-style windshield, a sound system that can be heard on Mars, and a power-operated rear entrance for the single seat (no doors in the normal place). Speakers for the sound system are as big as garbage can lids. Lots of bling-bling paint, 18" wheels and ground effects.

The thing was hideous.

Actually, it shouldn't be all that difficult to graft an Elf or Hornet front (if you can find one) on to almost any Mini Van or Wagon.

All of the mechanicals are the same as on any standard Mini, so it's simply a matter of swapping the fenders and bonnet.
