You can now buy a new limited edition Moke!

2020 MOKE

Not a lot of people know that there were more variants made of the classic Mini than any other British model.

The buggy-like Mini Moke was arguably the most beloved of them all. Having proved unsuitable for the military, it ultimately achieved global popularity as a recreational and utility vehicle.

In all, some 50,000 were made between 1964 and 1968 and it is now a rare collectors’ car.

Now the quirky motoring icon is on sale in the UK again. MOKE International Limited, which acquired the MOKE trademark in 2015, has been building a modernised MOKE in the Midlands for a few years, but it’s only just received the regulatory approval to sell them in the UK.

Customers will be able to order one of 56 limited edition MOKEs, an allocation selected to signify the number of years since the Mini Moke first appeared in Britain.

Each is available in a choice of 14 colours and the Limited Edition ‘MOKE 56’ comes with the front grille and windscreen rails in chrome, a discrete union jack badge on the front wings, and a numbered plaque on the bonnet.

Today’s MOKEs remain true to the look and feel of the original, with a particular focus on maintaining the sense of fun and freedom that has endeared the car to so many for more than five decades.

The vehicle is also slightly larger to provide more cabin space. Features previously viewed as a luxury like power steering and heated windscreen now, of course, come as standard.
