ERA Turbo


Mini ERA Turbo (1989)

SUMMARY
Created as a replacement to the Cooper S the E.R.A. Mini was the fastest ever production (classic) Mini, Put forward to Rover by E.R.A in 1988 who agreed to put it into production the next year. However as only around 250 per year were estimated to be produced so E.R.A. took on the responsibility of converting the cars. With a bodykit styled by Marcos designer Dennis Adams, the E.R.A. compared favourably on paper to other fast superMinis such as the MG Metro Turbo, VW Golf GTi, Ford Fiesta XR2 and Citroen AX GT
