You really like that thing don't ya? :D
Can't blame you. Such a fun car to drive.
Here's my C500 Cooper S tearing through Green Hell:

I'm loving that livery you have in the first post, is it available on the store front?
 
I love how every paint looks totally authentic for the car's era. Are they genuine liveries or your own design? Either way, they look spot on.

Out of my 24 Cooper '65s, some are based on club racers I've watched race at Sydney Motorsport Park. Some are original.
The ones with more detail are as close to the authentic liveries as I can get.

I had a '71 Morris Mini 1000 in red back when I lived in England in 1982-1984. I loved that little car. I have an idea for some snazzy 1960s paint schemes. Give me a few days.

Cool! Make it happen. :cheers:
I'm actually searching for a Mini. I held off getting a 2016 MX-5 because, I'll spend a similar amount buying and prepping one to enjoy at the track and leisure. I'm getting one. Hence, building my virtual collection.
 
Been busy at night tuning some E, D, C and even newly made A class Minis. I have two-tiers of E254 & E255 class spec racers(24 in E class), 24 D388 & 24 D391 spec racers, 24 D441-465 racers and 3 A638 RWD "Spaceframe" spec Minis. Number 100 is below.

I've added 8 more liveries based on auto modellista stripes and paint schemes. Just a sample below.
