1960 AUSTIN MINI COOPER S WORKS RE-CREATION
Based on a 1960 Mini but rebuilt as a Cooper S replica, Silverstone’s tarmac terroriser is considerably cheaper than the real deal, but just as much fun. The auctioneer says the car went to the USA and came home in 2015. The 1275cc engine has been polished and ported and the straight-cut gearbox rebuilt with a quick shift, while twin tanks make long-distance events less taxing. It shouldn’t have any trouble selling.
