"The names Cooper and Cooper S are the names used for the sportier version of the classic Mini, which in turn come from the involvement of John Cooper and the Cooper Car Company. The Cooper heritage is further emphasised with the John Cooper Works (JCW) range of tuning options. The John Cooper Works company also created a higher specification model of the Mini Cooper S, the Mini Cooper S Works. It has a higher volume exhaust and air filter, and uprated brakes and suspension, and different 17” wheels from the S models.
This striking Mini Cooper S was prepared and customised prior to delivery by the legendary F1 winning John Cooper garage. It is one of the few prepared by them over a six-month period prior to the model being launched as a factory option. The impressive list of options were commissioned by the owner at a cost in excess of £12,000 and include carbon fibre spoiler, boot handle, handbrake and steering wheel inserts. We are told that this automatic Mini is tremendous fun with its upgraded suspension and engine tuning and responds well to the paddle shift gear change. Perhaps more importantly we are told she also stops well with the addition of an upgraded big brake kit. With the combination of a custom paint finish an exclusive interior, one owner and particularly low mileage, this Cooper S offers an extremely rare opportunity for any prospective buyer. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document and a valid MoT test certificate, viewing is highly recommended.
