More Details

Shortly after the Mini was on the market, race car builder John Cooper realized the potential of the little car in competition. The 848cc engine from the Morris Mini-Minor was given a longer stroke, increasing displacement to 997cc. A pair of SU carburettors helped increase power from 34 to 55 horsepower. Rounding out the performance package was a close-ratio gearbox and front disc brakes.

The Austin Mini Cooper and Morris Mini Cooper debuted in September 1961. To meet homologation rules for Group 2 rally racing, one thousand units of the original Mini Cooper were produced. The 997cc engine was eventually replaced by a shorter stroke 998cc version in 1964.

Mini Cooper S - A more powerful Mini Cooper was offered in 1963. The new model "S" featured a 1071cc engine with a larger 70.61mm bore. Large servo-assisted disc brakes were added. 4,030 original Cooper S models were produced and sold until the model was updated in August 1964.

Cooper also produced two other S models specifically for circuit racing in the under 1000cc and under 1300cc classes. Theses engines had displacements of 970cc and a 1275cc, respectively. The smaller-engine model was not well received, and only 963 were built when the model was discontinued in 1965. The 1275cc Cooper S model continued in production until 1971.
