Britpart's Mini V8

Originally Published: January 2014

It’s not too late to leave broad hints lying around for Santa. Which is good, because Britpart has just launched a model V8 engine, made by Haynes, which is fully motorised and comes complete with flashing spark plugs and revving sounds recorded from the real thing.

The model comes in kit form, with 300 pieces as well as its very own Haynes manual providing step-by-step instructions. Not exactly a stocking filler at around £40, but what’s not to love? Visit for details of your nearest dealer.
