Another ahhh....interesting new Mini shell from Team Atlas. A Suzuki Every Van.

It's good to see lots of new shells, but damn are some of these weird!

Looks like it would need some seriously long body posts

I thought the AL-C8 Atlas body had better lines than the "VAN"

Greg,

Perhaps us long wheel based mini fanatics are a minority.

But I sure do agree with you. It would be even better if someone did a 225mm Cooper body shell.

Maybe it does Cal, but try and get the Alfa shell onto an M03 - it ain't gonna happen.

Yeah I know. You win.

But it will look sexy on a ABC Genetic or Active Hobby 4WD Mini. Or even a Switch or MO5 Pro.

You know it was the red that sucked me in, like a good looking girl in a red dress.....like Jessica Rabbit sucked in Roger Rabbit.

Quick question guys. Who makes this body?



Doesn't look like the Tamiya. The proportion is different. Looks shorter.

Nope doesn't look like it. It's not the newest one, and not the oldest one. It's the 2002-2006 model. I had one in 1:1, so it's my fave. This one looks distinctly shorter than the Tamiya version. Could it just be the way that the wheelwells and sideskirts are cut?

Tamiya made an 06 typeS.

http://www.etamiya.com/shop/tamiya-5...-90000291.html

But the body above doesn't look as detail tho.

Maybe an ABC body. I've been loving ABC bodys for years now!

That's a good looking mini though

That's a typo. The latest Mini Cooper was introduced in 2007 as noted in the description. Regardless of whether it was a Cooper or Cooper S. This is a 2002-2006 model Cooper, but you're right, I think it may be an ABC...
