Mini

The legend was born in 1959…
…and it is small: it is MINI.

The full new concept astonished the world.
The Mini was the first car with a transversely mounted four-stroke inline four-cylinder engine and the transmission case served as an oil pan, bolted directly to the engine from below, sharing the engine oil with the engine.
Unlike other passenger cars, the Mini had a suspension with conical rubber blocks instead of steel springs, which was very hard, but the Mini had road holding that was hard to beat at the
time.
Famous racers like Niki Lauda reaped his first motorsport laurels in MINIs.
Even today Minis line up at the start of races because of their favourable power-to-weight ratio.

The Mini advanced over the decades to a lifestyle product and is still very popular today in many classes due to its individuality.

This Mini was total restored in 2017 to an excellent condition.

Since then the Mini receivent a frequent and ordinary maintenance.

It has been totally restored in every respect by replacing practically every single part that had a minimum defect.

The bodywork is in amazing condition with no rust comming through and the interieur was renewed. The engine had received a complete service because an intervention was not necessary.

In 1992 shortly after the introduction of the Cooper 1.3i, the standard Minis were also equipped with the 1275cc engine, the good old SU carburetor was retained but the standard three-way catalytic converter was added. Production of the Mini City ended and the Mini Sprite was introduced alongside the Mayfair.
In 1995 Mayfair and Sprite adopted electronic fuel injection. This engine, however, was not the same one mounted on the Cooper as it delivered 53 horsepower instead of the 63 of the Cooper.
