    I found this link while looking on the PSMINI web site. Was there really a Aluminum Bodied Austin Cooper S?

    That car was in the Hart Collection for a couple of years. We all saw it on our ramblings around Group 2 and at the NW Historics, and I don't recall anything about it having exotic bodywork.

      I'm with you Dan, I've seen this car several times and don't remember it having an aluminum body. I've herd of several panels such as bonnet, boot lid, and even heard of some door skins on time...but never the main body. I bet if you tested in with a magnet ..you would find steel
