Great to see Speed 3 Automotive at last Sunday’s Petrol & Pistons event at Croft with their newly-completed MG TF-based silhouette Mini kit. Think Maguire Mini and you’re close…


A date with the IVA-tester is due soon and then the car will be available for test drives and for us to do a feature. I am very impressed with the level of detailing and attention to detail that Steve Milburn and his team have managed here.

Kit prices start with the chassis package at £2850 inc VAT and Steve reckons that a DIY-budget of £8000 should see a car completed, which is excellent value.

More on this one soon.

In the meantime, Steve is already busy working on Speed 3’s next model, a pastiche of the Metro 6R4 GpB rally car! More on this one soon too. WATCH THIS SPACE.
