At first glance, this might seem like an odd match. First we have the Mini Cooper, a classic example of British engineering and sixties style, usually powered by a 1.0l straight-four and capable of little over 145kph, but a tenacious little beast on the rally stages thanks to its front-engined, front wheel drive layout. And poking its headlight in from the other side we have an Alfa Romeo GT 1300 Junior, an example of typically Italian flair and charm, a two-door, front-engined rear-wheel drive coupe whose lifespan during the late sixties/early seventies included notable runs on the touring car scene and several Zagato editions.
Both dissimilar. Both automotive icons. They will always have that in common.
