Viewed from a distance, this still-compact contraption might appear like an attempt to build one of the world's smallest pickup trucks.
Nevertheless, zooming in on the machine, reveals that there's no bed here. As such, if we look behind the two seats, we find that the "bed" is actually an engine compartment. And it's occupied by a V8.
Given the scale-friendly nature of the vehicle, such a motor would've been enough to provide serious motivation. But since we seem to be in the middle of a horsepower war, as far as real-world builds are concerned, why not throw a supercharger on top?
Of course, the two-seater conversion and the longitudinally mounted motor are accompanied by a myriad of changes. After all, such a pocket rocket needs to be able to hold its own when a corner arrives, while also requiring a sturdier structure.
And you'll be able to notice all these not-so-little upgrades thanks to the social media post below – if the style seems familiar, it’s because we’re looking at the work of Yasid Oozeear, one of the pioneers of the rendering realm.

On my YouTube right now - New episode of “Followers’ car” - you latest selection, the Austin V8 mid engined Mini. WHAT?! . . As usual, your suggestions in comments below about what car you have what’s your favourite car and we might just pick it for the next one! . . We can’t go wrong with one of the biggest timeless classics, right guys? I have a feeling that just like the classic beetle, no matter what you do to the classic mini, it’s acceptable. What do you think? . . However, was quite a bitch to wrap this one up with all the (video) editing that comes with, plus a packed schedule from yesterday and today. Multitasking like.... an ass. . .
