Classic Mini Cooper by Team Racing Autoshape

TRA Mini Cooper Front

Now here’s one super cool Silver Classic Mini Cooper. This ride was featured in the Auto Summit 2009 at Festival Mall, Alabang last August 15-23. It’s been fully restored and customized by blending this classic vehicle with modern technology.

TRA Classic Mini Driver's Seat
As you enter the driver’s seat, you’d still get the feel of the Classic Mini. Check out the Instrument cluster at the center of the un-upholstered dash, manual roll-down windows, and John Cooper steering wheel. But what gives away the classic lines are the accessories. See the stereo head unit beneath the driver’s side of the dash, the LCD monitor above the dash, as well as the custom speaker enclosure mounted on the door. The beauty of this install is that everything has been color-matched in such a way that you’d think it came like this straight out of the factory!

TRA Classic Mini Passenger's Side
Opening the passenger’s side door reveals another custom speaker enclosure, and an airconditioning unit under the dash to ensure that you roll in comfort and not just style. Who would want to be seen driving this car with beads of sweat forming on their forehead? Also note the rollbar at the back. This gives away the fact that this car wasn’t made just to look good, but to go fast!

TRA Classic Mini boot
Firing up the sound system, you’d be surprised to hear a “thump” that you’d never get with just mid and high range speakers. Everyone knows how much of a challenge it could be to install a good sound system in a small car such as a Classic Mini. But here’s a perfect example to show that this is not an impossible feat! Aside from the rear fill speakers on the rear deck, opening the boot (trunk) reveals the secret to how this Mini’s sound system packs a punch… or rather, a KICK, as you’ll find a Kicker Subwoofer in a tricked out enclosure. But the good thing is, you still have anough space in the boot to store a good sized gym bag!

TRA Classic Mini Cooper Boot Closeup
Here’s a closeup of what’s inside the boot. Notice the trick subwoofer enclosure and clear boot floor. And hey! It still has a spare tire! Unlike most subwoofer installs where you lose the pacticality of a spare tire, this ride was created with form and function in mind.

TRA Classic Mini Cooper
Just take a look at this gorgeous ride. This is a perfect example of something that’s contradictory to the stereotypical male thinking: “mine’s bigger than yours”. Because this is one Classic Mini that just about any sane male being would truly want to have.
