You'll find this in an underground parking in Cannes, this is.... The Mini Benz !
Actually that's how I called it because I don't know its name and there's no record of it around the Internet... And this is the only one in the World !
It looks like it's made on an Austin Mini base but with several Mercedes Benz parts. I think it's fantastic, it would be a great car for the city !

Actually this car might me called 5OMAR... Its always been named 5OMAR, after its first regplate.
If this is 5OMAR ? Then its a very famous car, its been featured in many books & magazine articles around the world.

It was built around September / October 1973, by Wood & Pickett of London, Abbey Road, Park Royal, London NW10.

This company Coachbuilt Mini,s for all the famues celebretys - Mick Jagger -- Paul & Linda McCartney -- Peter Sellers -- Aga Khan - The Sultan of Bruneii -- King Hussein of Jordan -- Elton John -- Bee Gees -- etc etc

It was the worlds most expensive Mini = 70000 D marks, you could buy a LOT of supercars for that amount in 1973.

But it has been back to W&P for more jobs since 1973 = Landau conversion, and the Merc grill L and that would have added to the price .

Thanks to Jens Christian (Denmark) for the information !

Enoy !
