Description

The notion that the Mini might have a future as anything other than basic transport was an anathema, the idea of a high-performance version was laughable. One man though, saw it quite differently. Racing car manufacturer John Cooper already knew quite a bit about tuning BMC’s A-Series engine, he was running the company’s Formula Junior effort at the time and a test drive in a prototype Mini convinced him of the car’s competition potential. The Mini Cooper soon established its credentials as a rally and race winner and the stage was set for even faster versions. The first of these, the 1071cc Mini Cooper ‘S’ of 1963, took engine development a stage further and provided the basis for the 971 ‘S’ and 1275 ‘S’ of 1964.

This Mini Cooper ‘S’ 1275 is finished in its exterior colour of red with red/off-white interior. The car is said to be in original condition and remarks by the owner says that the car could be considered excellent. Having covered a mere 8459 miles, this Cooper ‘S’ presents a sound investment, not to mention a whole lot of fun to drive today as it was in 1965.
