Video: Classic Mini Cooper Racer Up for Auction

At Autosport International we took the opportunity to enjoy the cars Silverstone Auction had for sale, and piked out own favourites. Here our Paul Tarsey looks at a 1963 Austin Cooper S that was converted for racing and gained its FIA Appendix K passport in 2012.

The gorgeous Mini boasts a Swiftune prepared 1293cc engine, giving around 140BHP in what has to be a very lightweight car. The engine uses SU carburettors and single point ignition as specified by the FIA, and the car come with a spare set of wheels.

We looked at the car pre-sale, and in Saturday afternoon’s auction it went for £41,625, we believe into the hands of a well-known racing family!
