Mini Mojito

A fresh take on a motoring classic. The Mini Mojito is for the discerning. Those that value individuality. Those that want to discover a new sense of freedom. Those that love to have fun.

Restored by traditional British coachbuilders Crayford®, the Mini Mojito is a car that takes its punchy personality from the iconic Mk1 Mini.

But while its look is authentically early 1960s and stylishly simplistic, the Mojito has been re-engineered using up-to-date technology and the option of a fully-electric powertrain adds to its modern-day relevance.

The best of British craftsmanship


The Crayford® name is back

We're redefining what's possible when you harness passion, ingenuity and a deep appreciation for more than 60 years of motoring heritage.


The Mini Mojito

Reminiscent of the original Mini-based Beach Car, the Crayford® Mini Mojito has been re-engineered using up-to-date technology – including a modern braking system – to create a contemporary runabout that's fun and easy to drive.


Luxury materials and trim

Perfect for use on the quayside or at the beach, the Mini Mojito has been built using the highest grade materials, synonymous with the superyacht industry.

Bespoke specification

The Crayford® Mini Mojito can be exclusively configured based on owner preference. We offer a choice between a Cooper-specification high output conventional petrol engine or a fully-electric powertrain.

Crayford® is an icon of British motoring. We’ve spent the last two years assembling a team to revive the brand in a way that remains loyal to its 64-year heritage and creative spirit.

The Crayford storyRedefining motoring since 1963


Investing just £20 each, David McMullan and fellow founder Jeff Smith establish Crayford Auto Developments. The Mini convertible is the first car to roll out of their workshop.


The Crayford Mini is a big success in the UK – and as far afield as Australia. The Crayford Mk1 Ford Cortina is unveiled at London’s Racing Car Show.


Crayford Mini convertibles are given away as prizes in a competition run by Heinz 57. Crayford supplies 57 Wolseley conversions exclusively to the food company. The BMC 1100 Estate conversion is also launched.

The deposit to purchase a Crayford factory in Westerham is funded by the Heinz collaboration, and the name Crayford Auto Development Ltd is registered.


The Crayford Rover 2000/V8 P6 Estate is revealed, as well as the Vauxhall Viva HB Cabriolet, Capri convertible, BMC 1300 Cabriolet, V8 Capri Saloon, Mercedes-Benz 114 ‘Compact’ Estate and the Austin 3-litre Estate.
