Influx Magazine have shared a great story and video with us. 94bhp and top speed of 115mph. Who could resist such a rare beauty.

We just had to take a look it was superb. and sadly we didn’t pursue it any further. How we regret that now.

Influx told us “Mini love is big love. There’s something so special about the original cast of Minis.

In whatever town or city, in whatever country, at any point over the past few decades.”
