Mini fans, you’re in for a treat. More than just a beautifully presented classic, our Mini is an absolute pocket rocket!

Our upgraded Austin Mini optimises the racing DNA in John Cooper’s Minis.

The list of upgrades include:

  • Tuned 1380cc engine
  • Uprated Swifttune pistons
  • Uprated Swifttune SW5 Camshaft.
  • 40 Webber Carburettor
  • Balanced, lightweight flywheel and crank.
  • Straight cut close ratio gearbox
  • Adjustable ride height
  • Adjustable GAZ shock absorbers
  • Rose petal 10 inch wheels
  • Yokohama tyres
  • 7.5 inch front disk brakes

These modifications make this Mini a real blast to drive. The previous owner left no stone unturned in their quest to build the ultimate drivers Mini. The sticky Yokohama rubber paired with uprated GAZ suspension gives our Mini bags of grip. The tuned 1380cc engine makes such a huge difference in what is a very light car, this car sprints off the line like few other classic Minis! The previous owner’s quest for excellence continues through to the beautiful intoerior. Featuring leather bucket seats, a custom dice leaver for the air control and a ‘Self Preservation Society’ custom Italian Job steering wheel centre, these fine details of the car really set off just how brilliant this classic is. The exterior pale blue with immaculate chrome work makes for a sleek and elegant Mini.

Whether you want to live your own Italian Job style street chase or cruise out at the weekends, this Mini really is a special car. Pick up your entries today for your chance of winning this very car!
