Mine does that when it needs a service/plugs/oil ... I'm not totally mechanically minded but 'look at the simple things first' has always been my mantra for a mini.
Actually, I'm mechanically inept but that's what my mechanic man has told me when it's happened to me. Thought it was going to be more serious...he just laughed.

I've never had engine shake from a problem with the sub-frame mounts. Just saying, from experience, the car has needed a basic service. I always fear the worst..don't we all...but it saves a lot of time and worry and expense if you check the simple things first.

He says the "car" shakes no mention of engine shake (edit OK yes he does but come on a sun-frame mount pulled off??), yes it can be the engine shaking the car, my point was if there is a known fault on the car, repair it first, a sub-frame mount is there for a fundamental reason. Might just be wheel balance but the overriding thing here is get the mount sorted.

get the mount sorted and get the car checked over by a specialist if you've had a crash. Not be funny but you're driving a car that has a known fault at high speed after an accident, that's just daft.
In normal circumstances vibration at around that speed could be a few things but I would start with checking the tyres pressures, balancing and tracking first.
