1972 Austin Mini Cooper (right Hand Drive) on 2040-cars
Virginia Beach, Virginia, United States
your bidding pleasure is my very rare and well-kept example of a 1972 Austin
Mini Cooper!! This is a rare Right Hand Drive model and it is not your average
mini... This mini started life as a mini 1000 but has had a significant
horsepower bump with the following engine modifications:
out A+ 1275
flat top pistons
help this speedy Mini Cooper shift it has:
final drive ration (Cruising at 80-85mph can be done easily with normal engine
what about driving around the corners and come to a safe and quick stop:
ride height suspension cones
degree camber control arms
caster angle. (Note: all suspension work completed in 2012)
front brake conversion... you heard me, DISK FRONT BRAKES!!
new Brake Master cylinder installed January 2014.
legal racing tires
Corbeau reclining seats
CD player and Speakers
about rockers or floor pans!? Well Don't!! WHY?
floor pan (there is still light rust holes in floor pan but is currently in drivable
and stable condition!)
this car was set up to accelerate quickly, go around turns like a GO-KART and
stop safely. The paint is a few years old and is in good condition. I will be
including Thule roof rack as well. I have a clean Virginia title in hand ready
to transfer!!! All turn signals, and lights work, the windshield wipers even
work! Oil pressure and gas gauges work along with the aftermarket cd player,
this thing can be driven everyday!! The odometer and speedometer are INOP due
to an old cable needing replacement, this is really the only thing that I would
want to fix but have gotten used to driving without those two items.
VIN # XA2S1N617371A

The 2014 Cooper will come with a three-cylinder engine and the Cooper S will get a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, both with Mini's TwinPower turbochargers.
We have seen spy photos of the all-new Mini Cooper. We have been teased about its drivetrain. Now we have the engine details confirmed by BMW.
French stuntman Guerlain Chicherit hit the ski slopes of Tignes, France over the weekend - not to enjoy the fresh snow but to perform the first-ever unassisted backlip in a car, which was teased last month.
Wed, 04 Jun 2014 17:01:00 EST
The unassisted part of the stunt comes from the fact that he Chicherit, in a special rally-prepped Mini Countryman, uses a regular, solid ramp rather than any specially modified ramps that have been used in the past to pull off this stunt. Unfortunately, after 18 months of practice, you'd think the video would be more entertaining by showing more closeups or better angles of the stunt.
Either way, you can check out Chicherit and his Countryman nail the back flip in the video posted below, and Mini has provided a press release and some high-res shots for the stunt as well.
Lego isn't just for kids anymore. A while back, the company cleverly realized that adults liked its connecting blocks as much as kids but wanted a more sophisticated project to take on. It offers a whole set of Expert models, including a wickedly cool Volkswagen Bus from a few years ago. Now, it's taking aim at automotive enthusiasts again with the recently announced classic Mini Cooper set due to go on sale on August 1 for $99.99.
This is a seriously cool Lego model. At nine inches long, five inches wide and four inches tall, the car is certainly compact (as a Mini should be), but it contains 1,077 pieces. It's finished in the classic Mini look with a British Racing Green body with white roof, hood stripes and mirror caps. The doors, hood and trunk all open up, and there's even a little, simulated engine. The interior includes features like a turning steering wheel and movable gearshift and handbrake. In the boot, there is a cute picnic set, and even a spare tire hidden under the floor. If you want to show off your handiwork after it's built, the roof is removable to peer inside.
Expect dads around the world to be unwrapping these when the holidays roll around. Scroll down to watch one of Lego's designers detailing its latest set and read the full release about it, below. The gallery shows the Mini off from all of its blocky angles, as well.
