Mini Mania tests the Twin Engine 4 wheel drive MINI Cooper
Created: February 27, 2014
The first ever Mini with 2 engines was produced by the factory in 1963, it was built on the original classic version of the Mini Cooper called the “MOKE”. The Moke was a jeep version of the Mini with intended military applications. It ran the standard 10” wheels and built simple by putting a second engine mounted on the original front subframe in the back of the vehicle. Originally the gear shift linkages were connected together along with the clutch and throttle pedal. This proved to be a bit of as nightmare as it was very difficult to synchronize both engines and transmissions.

Founded in 1974, Mini Mania first presented itself on the Internet in 1996. Always a leader in information and customer service, the Internet was and continues to be a great means of giving more to our friends and customers.
