I'd love to know more about this amazing offer, can you show me the details...
The Mini Cooper first entered the legendary Monte Carlo Rally in 1960 – a mere six months after the car started rolling off the production line. Although designed by Alec Issigonis as the ultimate people’s car, rally drivers soon became aware of the Mini’s amazing handling ability and quickly recognised its racing potentional.
The Cooper’s first Monte Carlo win came in 1964, superbly driven to victory by Paddy Hopkirk. Proving that win was far from a fluke, Timo Mäkinen repeated the feat the following year – despite some appalling driving conditions in the snow and ice-bound Alps. In 1966, with the Mini hot favourite to gain a hat-trick of victories, Mäkinen and Hopkirk – together with Rauno Aaltonen in another Cooper – thrilled fans when they finished first, second and third. But joy quickly turned to disbelief when, all three cars were disqualified.
The French officials decided the Mini’s lights failed to comply with race regulations. It was a controversial decision that fellow drivers and rally fans find impossible to comprehend even today. Determined to prove the authorities wrong, all three drivers re-entered in 1967 – the British public urging the plucky Minis to victory. When Aaltonen’s Cooper crossed the finish line 12 seconds ahead of its closet rival, rally fans worldwide were jubilant. The Mini, against all odds, had once and for all proved its status as a bona fide rally car.
Corgi did the victorious car proud by issuing it in its full 1967 Monte Carlo livery, complete with an impressive array of jewelled headlights and a detailed roof rack. It remains one of the most-iconic Corgi Toys of all time. This fully authentic die-cast reissue is completely faithful to the 1967 model – and is of course a fraction of the cost of an original!
