MINI JCW Cabrio with Paddy Hopkirk and Rauno Altonen in Monte Carlo
So MINI thought it would be a great idea to get these two Rally greats together and take them back to the scene of their former triumphs. Only this time they sent them to Monte Carlo in a brand new MINI John Cooper Works Cabriolet to drive round part of the Rally stage.
This is properly good video from MINI, with some great cutting between the classic Mini in action and the legendary pair driving and reminiscing. And it redeems MINI’s video offerings after the recent barking mad ‘Twins’ videos used to tease the reveal of the MINI Roadster and MINI Coupe.
Even if you don’t remember the Mini’s rallying exploits of the ’60s you’ll still get a kick out of this footage.
