Launched in 1996 the Mk. VII was the final version of the classic shaped Mini. The car was now fitted with twin point injection with front-mounted radiator, a full-width dashboard replaced the original shelf, internal bonnet release and the Introduction of an airbag on the driver's side. The basic Mini was the 1.3i, the other model in the range being the Mini Cooper. The end of production in October 2000 not only signalled the end of original Mini production after 41 years, but also brought about the demise of the 1275-cc engine which had powered the Mini and numerous other BL/BMC/ARG cars for more than 35 years. The Metro had ceased production two and a half years earlier, ironically meaning the Mini outlived the car that was supposed to replace it.
This impressive Cooper edition was supplied new to Japan in 1998.This 1275 Mini has been well looked after and is described by the vendor as ‘10/10 in every regard’. Presenting in white with a contrasting black roof, black wheel arches and fitted with driving lamps, this iconic car certainly looks the part. The interior is fitted with leather seats, a new one-piece red carpet, a bespoke carbon fibre dashboard and door finishers and air conditioning. We are also informed that the looks are complemented by the drive of this car which has benefitted from a new gearbox, new clutch, new wheels and tyres, adjustable shock absorbers and a recent service. Offered without reserve this Mini would grace any collection.
