The Appeal

With compact proportions, peppy performance and unique character, the Mini was a success story that took the UK by storm, and soldiered on as the rest of automotive world went into more and more homogenised design. By 1999, however, the writing was on the wall, and production would grind to a halt by early 2000. 
This example of the much-loved Mini Cooper Sport comes to us with an exceptional fettle, having done what’s believed to be only 16,439 miles. With so much originality on offer, and a near-immaculate interior, this may well be one of the best we’ve seen.
