MINI has launched a special edition 1499 GT version of the hatchback, inspired by the classic 1275 GT.

MINI says the 1499 GT "recalls the entertaining drive, distinctive styling and low running costs of the 1969 original, which was one of the most affordable performance cars of its day".

In the 1499 GT the new engine produces 102hp and takes the auto through 62mph from rest in 10.1 seconds.

Just 1,499 examples of the Mini 1499 GT will be built between November 2017 and February 2018.

Unlike the 1275 GT to which it pays tribute, the engine has not been bored out to expand its capacity; and sports suspension is the only mechanical upgrade over the standard Mini. The John Cooper Works Sport Pack is included and, inside, the auto has JCW sports seats, steering wheel and door entry plates. It also gets distinctive John Cooper Works bumpers, skirts and spoilers, plus all the standard One Hatch features like independent rear suspension, six-speed 'box and air conditioning.

Inside, the GT features sports seats, JCW steering wheel in perforated leather with multi-function controls, cruise control, a Visual Boost radio with MINI smartphone compatibility and piano black interior trim, along with carbon black interior details and an Anthracite headlining.
