Yesterday had kid’s fun flying over forgotten backcountry roads on this mini gladiator. A sharp set of big grins, and soaked backs, certified we had fun fighting each and every turn on our way. This particular GT6 was a 1970 MKII, equipped with a Le Mans fiberglass bonnet, magnesium Mini Lites & widened rear body. A boosted motor with 130hp, juiced by two big Stomberg carburetors, competition cams, intake manifolds & pipes did the rest. On the interior we found a roll cage, a pair of racing seats and a rock hard suspension to keep it low and on track, despite our constant attempts to destabilize him, tackling turns way too fast for a late 60’s lil’ speed demon. Well done Borja for a fabulous restoration job while turning it into a racing cheeky mini Bull Terrier. Brilliant!
Commissioned in 1963 to Giovanni Michelotti, the styling of this wonderful mini GT was immediately a success. But it wasn’t until the addition of a larger 2 liter, 6 cylinders motor, that really placed it into the arena, becoming the ultimate MG killer on the roads & races all over the world.
