Based on the standard Cooper Hardtop, the 1499 GT special edition model adds racy appearance items pilfered from the John Cooper Works parts bin. Inspiration for the car’s design is courtesy of the 1275 GT model from 1969, which intended to offer buyers “Cheap Thrills” according to Mini’s advertising campaign at the time. Only 150 1499 GTs will make their way stateside and only 30 of them will feature the coveted six-speed manual transmission; the rest get a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
