I almost fell out of my chair when I saw this front end to convert your Mini Cooper to a Cobra:


It's from Germany and it's only $3600, in white gelcoat, with no extras but including shipping.

I'm guessing its a tilt front end, why don't they show pics of that?

It's different for sure but is there a market for it?

At least there's no Cobra or Shelby badging on it as that would be so wrong.

Look HERE for an eBay auction for this front end, there are a couple of pictures of the one piece front end in the white. I originallly didn't want to post the auction because it disappears after a few months and then the link in this thread is no good.

Yes, I assume it is a tilt since it is one piece.

It actually fits the lines pretty well at least. But no, just could not do that.

Actually makes sense for a Mini to have an "AC Bristol" nose, right? LOL...
