2011 MINI Cooper SD Convertible (JCW Sport pack)


  • Equipped with the John Cooper Works Sport Pack offering both cosmetic and performance enhancements
  • Strikes a good balance between sportiness and economy - currently returning upwards of 50 mpg
  • Presented in very good overall condition for its age

The Appeal

If you were to ask us to recommend a daily driver for the warmer months, this MINI would be a very strong contender. A four-seater convertible with an economical diesel engine, JCW enhanced performance and kitsch retro styling, it’s a consummate all-rounder and this is a particularly smart example.

Offered with an advisory-free MOT until January 2024, this MINI is in great overall condition and we heartily approved of the red paintwork which sits well against the black exterior trims of the optional JCW Sports Package. The electrically retracted folding roof still operates as it should and insidem, the interior has weathered the years very well - clearly having been looked after by each of its five owners.

Reportedly driving well and offering strong performance as well as in excess of 50 mpg, this MINI proves that you can have practicality and fun from the same car.

The Exterior 

  • Handsome red paint scheme with little wear to show for its age
  • Only slight kerbing to a couple of the alloy wheels, although nothing excessive 
  • Soft top folding roof in full working order and reportedly watertight

The Mechanics 

  • 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel

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.


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.

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.
