1997 Mini Spiritual

More demented signs of what Longbridge planned for the Mini appeared at Geneva's auto show in 1997 - the Spiritual concept shunted the engine to the rear and shrank output to 800cc from just three cylinders. The Daewoo Matiz-lookalike was held together by a steel frame garnished with plastic paneling. Widely slated as personality-free, is this the nightmare vision of what Mini would become, had BMW not held on to the brand?
