 BACKGROUND 

The addition of a supercharger to the Mini Cooper turned the ‘S’ into a serious performance car that can put much more expensive motoring exotica to shame, especially when it comes to tight and twisty lanes, when the ‘S’ will leave pretty much any car for dead.

You don’t just get top end performance with the Mini Cooper S, it’s built to quality and safety standards by BMW, with great steering and a willing chassis it is still a versatile and practical car to live with day to day, and is now regarded as a very collectable modern day classic.

HISTORY

The very fine condition of this Cooper S is an absolute credit to its three previous owners and it still drives and performs like a new car, looking very smart with its silver paintwork, black roof and a set of rare black powder-coated 2-piece split-rim JCW 17” alloy wheels.
In recent weeks, in preparing the car for sale, it has undergone various works and detailing to bring it up to the very finest presentable standard. It has just undergone a full and thorough major service including a supercharger service, coolant flush and being fitted with 4 brand new Michelin Pilot Sport tires, a new battery and a genuine Mini exhaust system.

PAPERWORK

The current MOT expires May of next year.

The V5 is present showing 3 previous owners and there are numerous MOTs and receipts for repairs and servicing done by present and previous keepers over the years.

The car comes with two keys and all the original Mini Owner’s handbooks and service book.

INTERIOR

The black part-leather supportive seats and whole stylish and retro inspired interior look in very good condition and it’s hard to find any real sign of use or wear, though the leather bolsters do have some light creasing and the rear seat armrests a few scuffs and marks.

Everything is very neat and clean and there is an Alpine CD player with ipod lead and a whole list of extras to keep you comfortable and safe. The car comes with a leather adjustable steering wheel, ice-cold air-conditioning, a panoramic electric sunroof, electric front windows and door mirrors which are also heated for those cold winter mornings. 

EXTERIOR

Immaculately finished and presented in Silver with a Black roof there is nothing to find fault with, the few stone chips that were on the front of the car have been professionally re-painted and the paintwork all treated to a complete machine polishing. 

The black mirror caps coupled with those super rare 2-piece split-rim R98 JCW 17” alloy wheels, freshly powder-coated in black with diamond cut rims and brand-new tires, finish the car off perfectly.

MECHANICS

Open the bonnet and you’ll find everything as it should be, with no signs of any oil or coolant leaks. 

The car has been recently treated to a full service and comprehensive overhaul to ensure this Mini Cooper S is in perfect mechanical condition and ready for its next lucky owner.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
