Description

- Dealer registered and a showroom exhibit until recently

- Warranted 1,250 miles from new

- Sunroof, original book pack, extremely original and well preserved

Introduced in October 1996, the so-called MK7 or MPi Mini was the last evolution of Alec Issigonis' iconic design. Boasting a front-mounted radiator, driver's airbag, taller final drive ratio, multipoint fuel injection and side impact door bars etc, it proved a fitting swansong for one of the world's favourite cars. Only in production from March to October 2000, the Mini Classic Cooper Sport could be distinguished from earlier 'Sport Pack' equipped Coopers by its Platinum (rather than OEW) roof and bonnet stripes. The model's widened wheelarches housed 13x6 alloy wheels, while inside it featured an alloy dashboard as well as alloy window winders, door pulls and door handles. A be-winged green Mini motif appeared on the steering wheel and alloy wheel centres but the choice of exterior colours was limited to Solar Red, British Racing Green, Anthracite or Tahiti Blue. Regardless of their exterior hue, all Mini Classic Cooper Sports carried Nickel Silver leather seats with Black facings.

Finished in Anthracite with Nickel Silver / Black leather upholstery, this particular example has covered just 1,250 or so miles from new. First registered in Southern Ireland on 24th April 2001 with the appropriate number plate '01-W-1959', it has spent much of the past sixteen years being used as a showroom exhibit and promotional vehicle. Sporting quad auxiliary spot / foglamps and a sunroof, the diminutive Rover is in a condition commensurate with its decidedly modest mileage. A one registered keeper vehicle thus far, it is offered for sale with its original book pack.
