Does a Rover V8 and Classic Mini mix?

So I like the power and sound of the Rover V8, but can it work in the Classic Mini's tiny dimensions? On the evidence of this video, maybe not.

Still, fair play to the owner for making such a big engine work in a Mini. However, we'd suggest a little work on the suspension and handling to keep Doris, as this Clubman is called, on the correct side of the road!
