The Minari was designed by Andy Borrowman and Sean Prendergast of Minari Engineering Ltd, to accept Alfasud running gear, engine and transmission.
A rigid GRP monocoque body carries a steel subframe which, along with the donor’s front crossmember, supports the engine.
The prototype was extensively tested over 20,000 miles of rough and smooth roads and tracks without any problem. In fact it continued in service through the 140,000 mile mark.
For technical or general help from the registrar and other AROC members, please visit the Alfasud area of the AROC Forum as the Minari had Sud or 33 underpinnings: AROC Alfasud Forum.
