The year was 1961, when racing legend John Cooper first transformed the Classic Mini into a giant-slaying rally demon. John Cooper’s Mini 997, which featured a racing-tuned engine and a closer-ratio gearbox, would go on to outrace the clumsier sedans of the day and place first at nearly every one of racing’s benchmark contests, including 3 wins at the prestigious Monte Carlo Rally.
