After creating the perfect old-school surfer’s caravan, the guys at Cool & Vintage are back with another gem of a vehicle. Here’s their Mini Cooper Cafe Racer ($29,200) – a gnarly Mini, customized to be driven hard!
Based on a 1968 Morris Cooper, the cherry-red four-seater packs a new 1300cc engine, new Cooper S brakes & black wheels, Yokohama tires, and an RC40 Exhaust & LCB Manifold for extra growl. Handling should be superb for this little fella, thanks to the adjustable A-Rods with Gaz adjustable shocks, and the John Alley sway bar.
Other improvements include the addition of a high-performance aluminum radiator, a Smiths rev counter, a period-correct racing driver’s seat, a reverse spotlight and three more attached to the front bumper – for that 60´s Cafe Racer flair, and some racing stickers “just for the looks.”
