Description

In 1959, a small team led by Sir Alec Issigonis launched the MINI. A small and economical car, with a transverse front-wheel motor, which helped to maximize space to accommodate four people.

The 1275 GT model is easily recognized by the more square front facelift, courtesy of stylist Roy Haynes. This model was produced from 1969 to 1980 and was widely used in Portugal in competition, with excellent results both in rallies and on the track.

This unit was fully restored and documented. It is certified by the Historic Car Caramulo Museum.
