FeaturesShortly after its release to the public, the Morris Mini Cooper was recognized as a possibly excellent rally car, due to its positive performance on slippery surfaces. The annual Monte Carlo Rally is held during the harsh winters of Europe and this little car was so easy to handle on snowy surfaces because of its front wheel drive, that a number of them began to be built up for racing. The famed Porsche 911 could easily overtake it on a dry course, but the Mini soon overtakes it on the curves and wet slippery surfaces. The Mini Cooper's first Monte Carlo win was in 1964, and then they did it again in 1965. They came back again in 1967 with Aaltonen and Liddon winning in a Mini Cooper 1275S. Kit replicates the authentic suspension, engine, and chassis.
