Mini-Cooper MKI

The mighty Mini. While I owned a MKI in my youth, I never really appreciated this marvelous package of engineering until I began the illustration. From the hydrolastic suspension to the transverse mounted motor and gearbox, the Austin Mini-Cooper was quite a revolutionary little car and what would turn out to be, one of the British motorcar industry’s best selling and most iconic vehicles. Not to mention, fun to drive. Like many fine British cars of the era, the Mini’s end came in the early 70s, in large part, because it could not be made to meet the new Federal safety standards. Just as well, I think as British Leyland’s primary solution were the large rubber bumpers found on the MGs and Triumphs of the day.

The Sports Car Art Austin Mini-Cooper MKI limited edition fine art print (only 100 will be pressed) comes standard in left-hand drive with hydrolastic suspension, black interior, factory steel wheels, non-reclining front seats, and no radio or wing mirrors—more or less at it would have come off the showroom floor. You can, of course, option your print with any number of accessories including:

  • reclining seats
  • “dry” suspension
  • Mini-lite wheels
  • wood rimmed steering wheel
  • front disc brake
  • chrome edge trim
  • Lucas style wing or door mirror
  • bullet style wing or door mirror
  • radio
  • Lucas 576 spot lamp
  • reverse lamp
