A home market car and one of just 200 'Monte Carlo' EditionsUK-supplied (in 1994) and first registered on the 10/01/1995Commemorating the successesofthe Mini Cooper in the Monte Carlo RallyFully resprayed and now presenting beautifully with the original interiorThe history file is excellent including past MOTs and contains the original service bookAll funds raised on the sale of this lot, including commission, will be donated to Sporting Bears and the multiple children's charities that they supportIn 1994, three decades after an invincible little British car and alegendary driver had defeated hordes of larger and more powerful rivals to win the gruelling Monte Carlo Rally, a new version of the Cooper and the original Paddy Hopkirk returned to seek class honours in the 1994 running of the event. Clad in the same livery as its famous predecessor and sporting the same start number, the Mini Cooper powered confidently into the arduous six-day event cheered on by excited French supporters who took Number 37, 'Le Mini Anglaise', to their hearts. After thirty years, the Cooper's legendary ability still shone against the might of formidable opposition and Paddy and Number 37 were applauded wherever they went.The Mini Cooper 'Monte Carlo' was a limited-edition of 200 cars built in early 1994 to celebrate Paddy'sreturn to Monaco and was based upon the Mini Cooper 1.3i. The Monte Carlo was given special exterior colours (Flame Red and Black only), special badges, a special interior with Monte Carlo specific details, four auxiliary lamps at the front and 12-inch Minilite-style alloywheels.Under the bonnet wasthe standard, single-point fuel-injected 1275cc, 63bhp A-Series enginelinked to the normalfour-speed gearbox. Four auxiliary lamps dominated the front of the car, while the body-coloured wheel-arch extensions deceived the eye and madethe car look that little bit wider than it was. Specially finished alloy wheels wearingDunlop 165x12" tyres added to the sporty look, whilsta set of special Monte Carlo decals, including a John Cooper signature, completed the effect.Whilstthe exterior of the car wasinfluenced by the Monte Carlo rally cars, the interior wasa world apart from the spartan cockpit of its competition brethren. The red and white colouring found on the outside of the car wascarried through to the inside with the seats boasting red side rolls with patterned white facings. On the walnut dashboard, a set of Ivory-white dials added a sporty twist, andan extra switch on the dashboard controlledthe two fog lamps. Other tweaks include a red leather-covered gear knob and steering wheel and a set of red seat belts.Dating from mid-1994 and first registered on 10/01/1995, this smart, right-hand drive Mini Cooper 'Monte Carlo Edition' has recently beenfinished in a fresh coat of Flame Red with an Old English White roof. The indicated mileage is 44,847 supported by the original service book, older MOTs and a good history file. The current MOT is valid until Saturday 13 February 2021.Charity Fundraiser details:Sporting Bears is a key partner of The NEC Classic Motor Show where they usually operate 'Dream Rides' - giving attendees the opportunity to experience being a passenger in an amazing car.
