1998 Rover Mini 1275cc MPi. Metallic Tahiti Blue. Platinum Silver. Only 23k. 2 Owners. Awesome.


We are very pleased to an awesome and very stylish 1998 Rover Mini MPi. Finished in the ever popular metallic Tahiti blue and enhanced with a Platinum silver roof, bonnet stripes, mirrors and a sexy set of deep dish Superlite wheels with wider profile tyres. This example has only covered 23 thousand miles in 25 years with just two previous owners, the last owner cherished it for 15 years. It is accompanied with its original handbook, service book, a raft of receipts and both sets of keys and fobs. Towards the end of Classic Mini production Rover offered a non Cooper alternative in low volume numbers which have always been considered to be both stylish and subtle.

On the road this Mini is fantastic fun to drive. The low mileage 1275 engine is smooth with an excellent power delivery and it has precise gearbox. Performance is very brisk and the full Mini driving experience is on offer. It also benefits from a coil spring conversion with gas adjustable shock absorbers and Hi-Lo suspension, the end results are an excellent transformation of the ride, very smooth over all road surfaces but yet still with its precision handling and oodles of grin factor. This Mini also benefits from being multi point fuel injected (MPi) All you need to do to get out on the open road is turn the key and go. Further features include a Drivers airbag, side impact beams, alarm, immobiliser and taller gearing for long distance cruising. The popularity of MPi Minis continues to grow as they offer all the Classic Mini charm with a modern twist.

The Mini has a very well preserved interior that has a real luxury feel. Half leather Balmoral check trim with matching door cards, Powder blue carpets with the original and very rare matching floor matts. Full length Walnut dash with Magnolia dials. This example also benefits from a Stereo upgrade with a JVC CD/AUX head unit, Kenwood speakers in custom door pockets and a Kenwood amp in the boot offering very good sound quality. This model also has rear seat belts.

This Mini has a very solid shell with the correct vented sills, body coloured floor pans and inner arches. The subframes are also in good condition. As you can see from the pics the paintwork gleams and it really pops in the sunlight. This is a very sexy Mini in the flesh and it gets lots of deserved attention. It offers its new owner the chance to own a super low mileage Mini with great looks and serious fun on the open road.

We have fully serviced, checked and driven this Mini and it has a long MOT so it is ready to be driven and enjoyed.
