This project is limited to just 10 units and completely reimagines the 1974 Austin/Mini MK3. Replacing its standard engine is 3.5-liter Honda V6 that’s been fitted with a Rotrex C38-81 supercharger, forged pistons and much more to produce 502 WHP and 383 lb-ft. of torque.
The Super Cooper Type S is equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox that puts all the power down to the rear wheels, making for a car that can achieve 0-60 MPH in under four seconds. Gildred Racing has given the car a set of disc brakes all around, as well as adjustable coil-overs, too.
Inside you’ll find a custom charcoal suede and leather interior with heated and cooled Recaro seats, as well as modern amenities such as a 9.7” iPad Pro integrated into the dashboard, an Alpine stereo, and touch start. Take a look at the Gildred Racing Super Cooper Type S in the gallery above, and find out more about the car on Gildred Racing’s website, where you can inquire to build your own for a starting price of $150,000 USD.
