The Mini was manufactured by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original Mini was, of course, considered a British icon of the 1960’s with its space-saving front-wheel drive layout allowing a large percentage of the car's floorpan to be used for passengers and luggage, this influenced a generation of car makers and started the rush to create the best small family car. The Mini Cooper Sport had a front-mounted radiator, driver's airbag and was only produced from March to October 2000. It could be distinguished from earlier 'Sport Pack' equipped Coopers by its platinum roof and bonnet stripes. The model's widened wheel arches housed 13"x6" alloy wheels while inside it featured an alloy dashboard as well as alloy window winders, door pulls and door handles.
This lovely example originally registered on the 31st October 2000 is finished to 500 specification, is presented in British Racing Green with a silver roof and a wonderful leather interior in black and grey. It has had two former keepers from new both from the same family and has been garaged since new by all of the owners, including the present one. Boasting an MoT test certificate until the 23rd May 2023 and with a history file detailing servicing and maintenance, old MoT test certificates, original book pack and all books, with partially stamped service history book however fully maintained up to date. This is a wonderful classic British Sports car with great pedigree.
