A Very Big Welcome To A Truly Special Edition MINI - The Paddy Hopkirk MINI

News Header (2)

We are super excited to announce a very exclusive special edition MINI will be joining the MINI family! The Paddy Hopkirk MINI will join us from November - but is for sale now, meaning you could own a piece of MINI heritage.

Limited to only 100 vehicles for the UK market, the Paddy Hopkirk MINI is inspired by legendary rally driver Paddy Hopkirk, winner of the iconic 1964 Monte Carlo Rally. He won the rally driving Classic Mini Cooper S number 37 and this win cemented Mini’s position in the motorsport ‘Hall of Fame’, so this special edition MINI really is a nod to Mini’s Motorsport heritage.

Paddy Hopkirk is from Northern Ireland and was awarded an MBE in the 2016 New Year's Honours list. He first competed in a Mini at the 1963 Monte Carlo Rally, where he finished sixth, but won third place in the Tour de France Automobile's Touring Category behind two 3.8 litre Jaguars, winning his class.

He won the 1964 Monte Carlo Rally in a Mini Cooper S car number 37, with the registration number 33 EJB and this victory made Paddy Hopkirk a household name: he received telegrams from the then UK Prime Minister, the Beatles and even appeared along with his Mini on Sunday Night at the London Palladium.

This exciting special edition MINI is a modern-day nostalgic take on the renowned red rally car and will feature a white roof and distinguishable front spotlights. A particularly special nod to the original car itself is the subtle embossment of the registration number ‘33EJB’ into the single bonnet stripe, also featuring Paddy Hopkirk’s signature.
