Rally legend and McGard representative Paddy Hopkirk receives a special MINI model named after him


In memory of his sensational victory in the 1964 Monte Carlo Rally in a Mini Cooper S, MINI is dedicating a special model to Paddy Hopkirk named after him, the “Paddy Hopkirk Limited Edition”.

To protect the high-quality wheels of the legendary vehicle with the # 37 from theft, it is equipped with McGard wheel locks worldwide. McGard is supplying BMW and MINI with wheel locking bolts for many years.

In order to be able to compete successfully or even win the Monte Carlo Rally, you not only need driving talent but also stamina, resilience, know-how and technical material that can withstand the harsh road and weather conditions. In other words, attributes and features that are of great importance for McGard as well.

The Hopkirks are McGard’s sales reps for the UK and Ireland and have been for over 20 years. Paddy Hopkirk is of course very proud to have a MINI model named after him. McGard, on the other hand, is proud to be part of the “Paddy Hopkirk Limited Edition” from MINI.
