MINI France has launched the MINI Cooper S GT Edition that’s inspired by the MINI 1275 GT – the first MINI ever to be offered with a tachometer – from 1969 to 1980 and will only be available with 3 doors specifically for the French market.
As such the exterior of the car pays tribute to the original car with with hood, trunk and side stripes, GT Limited Edition lettering across the doors, a rear spoiler with the GT Limited Edition lettering and 18-inch “Spacecraft” wheels as seen on the John Cooper Works model.
Inside, the GT Edition comes with a GT Limited Edition inscription on the passenger side of the dashboard, illuminated door sills with GT lettering and the same letters are also projected onto the ground when the doors open.
Power comes from the same 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine from the Cooper S making 191 hp with 280 Nm of torque. Transmission options are between a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual clutch unit.
