Ever fancied stepping into the shoes of Sir Michael Caine and racing minis around while evading the law? Well now you can.

As the video shows, once booked in for the experience, guests will be treated to meal at Bunga Bunga in Battersea before being whisked off for an exhilarating tour around London and ending up at the Covent Garden branch of the Italian bar and restaurant.

When we went on our trip we also found ourselves caught up in a heist but there are plenty of other secrets we won’t spoil along the way.

The minis, which are a British institution themselves, were made famous by the 1969 film which saw Caine lead a gang of robbers on an audacious crime spree. Don’t worry though, you will be in the safe (if not entirely trustworthy) hands of expert drivers from the Small Car Big City team.
