Our 1964 Mini Cooper S is powered by a very special race motor designed and prepared by Hartley Engines. Underpinning it is an A-series block (A+) with a capacity of 970cc and a straight cut Mini gearbox. The three bearing crank is specially designed for the job thanks to Heritage Garage and Marine Crankshaft. The head of this beast is from a BMW K1200 and began as a kit from Specialist Components, who also supplied the conrods which attach to Ross forged pistons. Fuel injection and a MSE turbo complete the package. The motors we had in 2012 produced 284hp at the flywheel, when this photo was taken in 2014 this motor was producing 330hp at the flywheel on petrol, 350hp on methanol.
