SOLD 1998 Rover Mini Cooper 1275cc MPI. British Racing Green. Only 24k from new with a FSH. Very rare.


We are very pleased to offer a wonderfully preserved 1998 Rover Mini Cooper. Finished in the iconic colour combination of metallic British Racing green with a contrasting white roof, bonett stripes and coach lines and Minilte wheels with twin spot lamps. This little gem has covered 24k in 20 years and is accompanied with its original owners handbook, stamped service book, both sets of keys and fobs and every MOT certificate from new, it also has its original bill of sale from SMC Rover in Slough and various main dealer receipts. Its previous owner had it for 15 years and kept it dry stored during that time.

Finding a well preserved example like this is always a pleasure and the benefits out on the open road are obvious. The 1275 engine is very smooth and provides a very punchy performance right through the rev band, the gearbox is taught and precise and the handling is sublime. Im a big fan of late model Minis as they are great fun to drive and this example is one of the best I have driven, it really feels like new on the road. This is a Multi point fuel injected Mini or MPI as they are known. All you need to do is turn the key and off you go. They also feature side impact beams, drivers airbag and a factory fitted alarm. Another MPi feature is taller gearing so they cruise with ease on long journeys. Late model Minis offer all the charm of the Classic Mini with a modern twist.

This Cooper also has a very well preserved interior with its original half leather Monaco trim seats and walnut dash with Magnolia dials and an analogue clock. The original Rover stereo is fitted and working well. The carpets and roof liner are all original and in very good condition. These models also had rear seat belts.

This Mini also has a very solid shell and was waxoiled from new. It has its original vented sills, gleaming floor pans and boot floor. All the panels are also original with excellent gaps which again points to this Cooper having an easy life. It still has its factory waxoil and its still green inside all four wheel arches.

We have fully serviced this Cooper and it has many new parts and has a long no advisory MOT. If your after a factory spec example with fantastic provenance with low mileage then you may have just found your perfect Mini.
