1978 Leyland Mini 1275 GTS

In South Africa, the 1275cc Mini Clubman GT was relaunched as the local-only 1275cc Clubman GTS on 26 July 1973 with a price of R2 280. Advertising focus was on the car's performance and in 1974, CAR magazine's road test gushed that the Clubman GTS "probably deserves the title of the most exciting Mini ever built... has the ability to hold its own against some pretty hot GT machinery..."

The GTS was fitted with twin SU 1ΒΌ-inch carbs and a cylinder head to match. A banana branch was fitted with a free-flow exhaust system and an electric fuel pump was fitted. Disc brakes were fitted at the front and drums at the rear.

This made the GTS an exciting car and as the manufacturer's advert from the time read: "For little old ladies, it aint."
