You can’t beat a centre-exit for an authentic hark back to early days of Mini tuning. A staple of ‘60s race and rally cars, they quickly became a must for the Mini owner in the street too. Various options have been available over the years, from ubiquitous Peco and Cherry Bomb rear silencers right through to bespoke stainless systems. Sean Ashford’s MkI runs a single box stainless RC40 with a neat rolled tailpipe, which suits the car’s retro ethos perfectly.
