Media preview of the new MINI on the eve of the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 1997. Almost a hoax as it was a "skin prototype" based on the modified platform, engine and running gear of a Fiat Punto! It successfully diverted publicity from the arrival of the new Mercedes A-Class and Smart cars.This news clip includes an interview with the late John Cooper.

Probably not a good idea letting a mate drive my old car with no licence or lessons. (Remember - this video was filmed around 2010. I haven't owned this car in that long)
Mini MPI Launch 1997
Launch preview at BMH Gaydon, of the upgraded Mini MPI (Multi Point Injection) range for 1997 with drivers airbag, seatbelt pre-tensioners, door side impact bars and front mounted radiator. Despite Rover's original plan to end Mini production in 1997 due to new European safety and emmisions legislation, BMW's new investment in the Mini and John Cooper's insistence on this last update finally got the MPI into production in 1996, extending the Mini's life by 4 more years until the launch of the New MINI in 2001.
