Rare model and 1 of just 100 UK models built to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Cooper's four race wins across the British Saloon Car Championship (BSCC) in 1968 with Sport pack suspension, wheels and wide arch kit

Supplied new by MBM of Bristol in September 1998, this cool little Mini is a rather rare bit of kit, and 1 of just 100 believed sold as a Cooper Sports LE model, known as the BSCC version paying tribute to the 30 years since the famous four wins enjoyed by the original Mini Cooper in 1968 in the British Saloon Car Championship.

Finished in Brooklands Green (the other 50 were in black) with a white roof and bonnet stripes, the car was treated to chrome grill and handles with white mirrors along with twin coach lines with BMC style rosette with the words “Mini Cooper” to the rear quarters and also to the right-hand side of the boot lid plus a V-flash in yellow above each side repeater (similar to the British Vita logo)

The unique spec of the Cooper Sports LE also boasts twin spot lights, Sports suspension pack, 13x6J Sports-pack alloy wheels and extra flared Sports pack wheel arches.

Inside the car we also find a special dark green leather interior, Walnut dash, green carpets, black steering wheel and dark green leather gearknob and gaiter.

Under the bonnet, we find the familiar 1275cc Mpi Cooper engine driving the front wheels via four-speed manual transmission.

The car has had nearly a complete JCW power boost kit fitted (everything apart from the oil cooler as far as he can tell) which ups the power of the mini and retails at over £3k for the kit.

This cool example shows 81, 000 miles which have covered by 9 former keepers and presents well.

The history file includes the V5C, owner’s pack with service book showing seven stamps plus one hand-written entry, the last in 2015 at 78, 763 miles by Autotek of Surrey. Furthermore, the file also includes 12 old Mots, the current Mot valid until March 2025 showing no advisories along with a file of maintenance and parts bills dating back to the early 2000s.

Bills of note include fitment of a reconditioned gearbox in 2003 and new Polyflex tie bar bush kit for the front subframe in 2022.

The car has recently had new suspension cones on all 4 corners.

Ready to enjoy, this looks to be a rare variant of the ever-popular Mini and likely worth tucking away or simply enjoying.
