Saw this at Stanford Hall Mini Show today, I knew what it was and I expect the anorak's amongst us will tell us what it is Laughing

Appearances are deceptive - it's a throttle return spring for use in extreme situations, where a normal one might manage to unhook itself.  The photo actually shows it the wrong way up: the eye engages with a shouldered bolt on the butterfly operating arm, the threaded pin at the other end fits a hole on the inlet manifold.

Well done Rum Tum Tugger. Quite correct.  This spring was indeed an uprated throttle spring. It actually came as part of a kit which included a thicker throttle cable, reinforced accelerator pedal and a washer to fit on the bulkhead to stop the cable punching through. Kit marketed by BMC competitions Dept (Later Special Tuning) from 1965 to around 1968. My brother had one on his '67 Mini. I claim my prize. Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing
