The British Mini in its Purest Lightweight Form
As we show more of the Guest Cars we had on the event we helped organize this year ( Retro Rides Gathering 2018) we now arrive at a quite special little thing. The super lightweight Mini Maguire 1360 of Derek Kessell.
Considered by many the Ultimate "pure Mini", as although it is a spaceframed chassis, it uses largely just British Leyland parts, coupled with a bored BMC engine, with 1360cc and producing 140Hp. Coupling that with the extraordinarily low weight of 420Kg, makes for a very impressive, super agile Hillclimb machine.
That such a simple and old design is still so effective just proves how much of a winning concept the Original Mini was. And it certainly deserves to be celebrated.
