Mini Seven - Click above for high-res image gallery

We're a little torn on this one. You're looking at what could possibly be the most awesome golf carts that vary from a proportionally-correct Hummer resort vehicle to a Bentley Continental GT lookalike. This, however, is different. The Seven was built specifically with children in mind, and Mini says that the pint-sized interpretation of Colin Chapman's wonder is safe for operation on tarmac or in fields. Powered by a Honda gasoline engine, the car has a top speed of around 19 mph.

Four disc brakes with a fully-adjustable proportioning valve are standard, as are a set of four-point harnesses to keep your budding speed demon firmly planted in the optional leather seats. Even the pedals are adjustable to keep up with a kid's growth.

Unfortunately, all of this unbelievable kit comes with a similarly eye-widening price tag. Expect to fork over £6,995, or roughly $11,305. Awesome? Sure. That awesome? Probably not.

      Geez..... you can build your own life size kit 7 for $11k.

        That's one spendy "penalty box-'o-fun" for the spoiled ones...

        For the "restovus" though...£6,995 (in UK at least) nabs you a genuine....penalty box.

        My sentiment exactly. Sorry kiddo, but if I've got a spare $11,305 laying around and want a Lotus 7 lookalike, I'll build a full size kit car.

      That is a cool ride for a kid. Cost more than a reliable real vehicle. Lucky kid.

      Wouldn't a rich person with a desire to put their kid in a race car just get them into kart-racing? I know it's not exactly the same thing, but if you're going to spend 11 grand you probably want the kid to do more than scoot around your driveway.

        Yeah, but that would mean you would have to interact with your kid(s) versus just buying them something fancy at Harrods and then going back to work.

      That looks like so much fun, if I was a kid and super duper rich.

        Screw that. Put the Ariel V8 in it. 500hp.

      To kids this will be infinitely cool... to grownups: sure, but not $11K cool IMO.

      I'm thinking Hayabusa upgrade, and slicks. Best. Trackcar. Ever.

      I just saw a Hummer Golf Cart on Car Lover Gift Guide. It comes in as a four seater or six seater. I think it cost $17K and it really looks cool. What is it these days with these toy cars costing almost as much as real cars?
