Mini Cooper S: 5 Reasons To Love About

Initially, 848 cc engines were included in the Mini Cooper S and a 997 Cubic Centimeter engine was included later for increasing the power to55 bhp from a mere 34 bhp. The car featured a racing tuned engine, a closer-ratio gearbox, twin SU carburetors, and front disc brakes, which was quite uncommon.

Later on, the 997 CC engine got replaced by the shorter 998 cc power-train in the year 1964. In the year 1962, by riding Mini Cooper S, Rhodesian John Love became one of the 1st non-British racing drivers to win the British Saloon Car Championship.

The most powerful Mini Cooper S has been developed and dubbed in Tandem and then released in the year 1963. It features a 1071 cc engine with a nitrided steel crankshaft, 70.61 mm bore, and strengthened bottom end for additional tuning.

The Company has almost released 4,030 Cooper S till now, since the model got updated in the year 1964. Cooper also produced 2 S models specifically for racing under 1,300 cc and 1000 cc ranges respectively, rated at 59 cu in and a 77.8 cu inches. Both the vehicles had a 70.61 mm bore and were offered to the public in both the variants.

Mini Cooper S with smaller engine was not received well and only 963 units were built when this model got discontinued in the year 1965. The production of 1275cc Cooper S models continued until 1971.

It was recently introduced in Indian markets, and is currently getting a lot of eye-balls rolling!
