The VetechBusa repackages the acclaimed Suzuki Hayabusa motorbike engine so that it can be installed directly into a car. The compact and lightweight unit includes Suzuki's gearbox with added reverse gear and limited slip differential, and fits into the engine bay of a classic Mini without the need for any bodywork or shell modifications.

Although designed around the Mini, the VetechBusa is compact, lightweight and powerful and as such is suitable for fitting in a range of other vehicles, either front or mid-engined, for example, the Lotus Elise, MGF or component cars.
