    My 1974 Mini Clubman automatic was originally supplied as a "Motobility" car...which meant it had a de-tuned 998cc A-Series. Mine still had the original cardboard order tag tied into the boot when I got it at over 30 years old. When allied to the 4 speed ZF autobox, it became so slow to accelerate it was awesome - and sometimes pretty scary when pulling out of a junction onto a busy road...

    The original literature didn't even quote a 0-60 time. Instead it quoted a 0-50 time...:Rolf: It was pointed out to me that you needed a calendar rather than a stopwatch to measure the acceleration...! :Epic Fail:

    In comparison, I'd say that Fiat looks quite rapid.:eek:
