Originally built and prepared for competition by Welsh specialist Owens Fabrication, this Mini Cooper S features a zero-hour engine and gearbox by A-series guru Nick Swift. The history of Swiftune goes back to the 1960s, when it was founded by Glyn Swift, and the company has built a stellar reputation in historic racing thanks to extensive success in high-profile events such as the Goodwood Revival. This beautifully presented Mini Cooper S is every inch the focused racing machine, with a fully stripped bodyshell and a driver’s seat that is set well back and as low as possible in order to optimise the centre of gravity. The original speedometer is surrounded by a Stack rev counter and modern dials for the water temperature and oil pressure. A small box where the passenger seat would normally be features controls for the ignition, fuel and starter, as well as heater, headlamps and windscreen wipers. There’s also a TIG-welded custom roll cage and a plumbed-in fire-extinguisher system. Open the boot and you’ll be greeted by the sight of a Swiftune fuel cell, and the suspension is also courtesy of Swiftune. The wheels are shod with 5.00 x 10 Dunlop Racing tyres. This racing Mini Cooper S competed in the 2019 Silverstone Classic, where it was driven by Ben Seyfried in the Mini Celebration Trophy, which marked the groundbreaking little car’s 60th anniversary. Now being offered for sale by The Classic Motor Hub, it has current FIA papers and is eligible for a number of historic series, where Minis never fail to captivate spectators with their giant-killing antics. Built to the very highest specification using only the best components and specialists, it will be competitive straight out of the box and there’s surely no more entertaining way to go motor racing.
