2002 Mini Cooper 1.6 (Custom painted - Paul Smith style)


  • Custom paintwork in the style of the 40th anniversary Mini by Paul Smith
  • Replacement engine (with lower mileage) installed
  • We have been told it runs properly and drives very well, with no problems to report

The Appeal

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Mini, British designer Paul Smith was commissioned to create his own version of this automotive icon. The result was an unconventional Mini with a stunning colourful striped livery.

The owner of this 2000 BMW MINI was inspired by Smith's design and created his own. No adhesive wrapping was used, but paint that was professionally applied to a high standard. The dashboard is also finished in the same way, adding liveliness to the interior. Mechanically, we have been informed that the car is in excellent condition, having been fitted with a lower-mileage engine to give it new life.

The History and Paperwork

  • Left-hand drive
  • Registered in Italy
  • Several photos showing the paintwork are included
  • In total, the car has covered around 300,000 kilometres, although an engine with 146,000 kilometres was fitted (and the corresponding odometer)
  • Originally black with white roof

The Conditions

  • Custom paint scheme - inspired by the Paul Smith version
  • Repainted white (an original BMW colour) and the roof was painted black
  • Stripes were painted one by one before application of a protective clear coat
  • Skirts, wheel arches, mirrors, spoiler and alloy wheels have been repainted in gloss black
  • Upgraded to LED lights
  • The dashboard was painted to match the exterior stripes
  • Interior trim has been redone
  • Steering wheel and headlining in black Alcantara
  • New leatherette upholstery with green stitching

The Mechanics

  • Four-cylinder 1.6-litre petrol engine
  • Five-speed manual gearbox
  • New front shock absorbers
  • When the engine was changed, an oil and filter change was carried out
  • The seller informs us that it drives well, with no visible problems
