The most successful small car of all time is perhaps the most fitting and accurate summary of the Mini. Produced between 1959 and 2000 there were over 5 million Minis manufactured in total, testament to Sir Alexander Issigonis's outstanding design.
This car was built in 1998 as a Cooper Sport Limited and registered initially as a display car to a dealer in Germany. The 1275cc engine was the top of the range at the time and the car remained unsold until being imported back to the UK in 1999.
Offered with just 3 owners from new, the history file shows lots of invoices from Mini specialists and confirmation of a Superchip upgrade and a twin tank conversion. The original handbooks and service book confirm the mileage of just 17,300 and the car is said to drive exceptionally well.
