Lot '47: Mini Cooper Sport

Classic & Vintage Cars & Motorcycles, Brightwells Auctioneers and Valuers (23 June 2010)

One of the last Rover Minis to be made before production came to an end in October 2000 and the brand was taken over by BMW, the Mini Cooper Sport was a limited edition model with many special features. These included: alloy wheels; flared wheelarches; twin front driving lamps and fog lamps; Platinum Silver roof, mirrors and bonnet stripes; large bore chrome tailpipe finisher.

Inside the car had black and silver leather seats with polished alloy dash, gearknob and door handles. A driver's airbag was standard along with a remote alarm/immobilizer, electronic headlamp leveling control, side impact door beams and pre-tensioned seatbelts. The engine was a 1275cc four-cylinder with electronic twin-point fuel injection and 4-speed manual transmission. Producing some 65bhp it could chuck the car to 60 in 12 seconds on the way to a top speed of 95mph.

First registered in March 2001 (some 5 months after Mini production had stopped), this particular Mini Cooper Sport has covered just 47,000 miles from new with a good service history and all its old MOT certificates. Presented in Tahiti Blue with the correct silver roof and stripes and correct black and silver leather interior, it is said to be a good, clean example that has not been messed about with and comes with its original handbook. Said to drive well, it is due to have a fresh MOT before the sale.
