Sir Alec Issignois, the creator of the original Austin Mini, dreamed of the Mini Moke in the sixties. Although the demand for it as a military vehicle, which was originally intended, failed, and even at first as a civilian courier vehicle, it was already a huge cult ten years later. While this did not save the tiny, unreasonable vehicle from a glorious passing away — they produced less than 50,000 units in 30 years — there were those who could not wipe the car out of their minds.

Such is the case with designer Michael Young, who dreamed up the original car in 2018, and now the model can begin to be marketed.

The modern Moke is larger than the original, although the exact dimensions are not specified by the manufacturer. The chassis is modern (MacPherson at the front, swingarm attached at the rear), the steering hydraulically servo, the front disc brakes work. The engine is a relatively modern, 1.1-liter, four-cylinder, 66-horsepower unit derived from the Chinese Chery by its code name. The transmission can be manual or automatic.

Waterproof seats, puritanical environment. In the event of rain, canvas roofs and vinyl doors can be patented, as shown in the image above.

The engine’s Euro4 emissions make the car as unsuitable for normal driving as the complete lack of safety systems (no airbags or anti-lock brakes are offered, and no modern bumpers, just a steel bar at the front and rear), but a door and a car without a roof might not necessarily be expected. In our view, the Mini Moke would have been orders of magnitude more interesting with an electric motor; perhaps this option will arise later.

There are, however, thirteen different, mostly hilarious colors. In addition, we can choose the tones of the body, bumpers, roll bars and grille separately from these, if we are willing to sacrifice this.

The car is currently being made into 56 pieces in honor of the type’s 56th birthday. There is no information about prices.
