The 1964 Monte Carlo rally is a story of legendary achievement. Small Car, Huge Win.
One of the most spectacular victories in the history of international motor sport. On 21 January 1964, the Mini Cooper S won the Monte Carlo Rally for the first time. It was the pairing of Northern Ireland’s Patrick “Paddy” Hopkirk and his co-driver Henry Liddon that pulled off the big surprise, resisting the supposed superiority of significantly more powerful rivals in their small British car. Its faultless run over country roads and mountain passes, ice and snow, tight corners and steep gradients laid the foundations for the underdog-turned-giant-slayer to cement itself in both the hearts of the public and the annals of motor sport legend.
This superb 1:18 replica was produced by Kyosho to celebrate the 50th anniversary and is ‘hens tooth’ find these days, with this model supplied in the original box in mint condition.
Presented cased, supplied on a plinth featuring a Paddy Hopkirk hand signed plaque, with COA, sitting inside a titled case, which creates an unrivalled display.
