Happened on me with a faulty coil
Going along the M42 in the middle lane, and the engine died instantly, luckily I got to the hard shoulder.

Not good at all! Took the car for an extensive run after that and everything seems perfect again. Funny the coil failed so quickly, maybe I should get one of the sports coils.
We had a new coil(bought on eBay) fail after we fitted a clutch (took the engine out to refresh the engine bay and fix oil leaks on the engine)
Put it all back together, he car was great until we went into 4th gear, no power... We changed everything, coil, distributor carb the lot...
Solved the problem by raiding one from another mini with the same type distributor. Problem solved,
I bought one from a local supplier and all is well

I run on the Lucas sports coil and never had any bother. I do have some old Lucas coils in the garage and they are still strong.
Only bother I ever had was with this one on the M42 when it died on me, it was just a non branded item. Few years ago though, back in 1995
