Mini Cooper Sport – low mileage. Superb condition.
Having devised the iconic original back in the early 1960s, John Cooper sold his own modified Minis under the 'Mini Cooper' name from the mid-1980s before Rover's acquisition of the rights to the name made it possible to officially re-launch the model in September 1990. The new Mini Cooper was based on the Mini 30, the most luxuriously equipped Limited Edition Mini to date, but fitted with the 1,275cc engine rather than the 30's 998cc unit. What would turn out to be the final Mini version - the Mark 7 - arrived in 1996. Changes included twin-point fuel injection, higher final drive gearing, driver's airbag, side impact beams, additional sound insulation, improved front seats, front-mounted radiator and a 'Sports Pack' option. Part of a factory initiative intended to encourage customers to personalise their Minis, the Sports Pack comprised 13"x6" Minilite-style alloy wheels, extended wheel arches, Koni dampers, four auxiliary front lights, large-bore exhaust tailpipe and extra instruments.Mini Cooper Sports pack in the classic deep Red with White cap, John Cooper bonnet stripes and mirrors. Only 32000 miles from new and immaculate condition cosmetically and mechanically really make this little Cooper stand out . The deep Red paintwork is truly excellent with no blemishes at all. The Cooper stripes and all the brightwork are as new. The sport extras like stainless wipers etc are again as new.
The half leather interior is again immaculate and remonstrative of such a low mileage car. Only approx. 1500 miles covered in last 10 years and always garaged. The Walnut dash, door cappings and interior furniture are all A!. The original alloy minilite style wheels are unmarked and present as new. These are shod with Yokohama radials all round,175/50/R13 which have seen very little use . Underneath my Mini is again superb. The inner wheels arches and sills are body color and there is a light coating of wax oil applied in approx. 2016. The rear sub-frame was replaced at this time too and remains immaculate.
To conclude this is a superb very low mileage example with the sports pack in immaculate condition everywhere with mechanics to match. In the highly sort after deep Red.
