Superchargers on A-series engines is not unusual - there are a number on Youtube. This particular mini was originally being prepared for a turbocharged engine - but it was never fitted. The engine went with the car when sold - turbocharging can cause heat problems.

You should also post a picture of what’s left of the owner’s wallet. :D

My sons just bought a 2018 John Cooper Works Cooper S Clubman - I think probably a tad cheaper than the old one is costing?

I remember back in 1982 my friend had a Mini and I drove it one day and I felt I was sitting on a skate board. :lol:
