The Ultimate Collectors Rover Mini - this is the final iteration and the penultimate offering from Rover UK to celebrate end of Rover Mini production. This particular model is the rarest of the rare and the most collectable. Our research (not official) suggests that less than 700 of this model were produced by Rover UK . Super rare - she's called the Rover Mini WIdebody "Cooper Sports Edition" - this is the unicorn British delivered mulitpoint injected version, last year of manufacture with all the best parts.
The Mini Classic Cooper Sport was produced due to the immense popularity of the Sports Pack - an option on 1997-2000 Minis - Rover decided to release a standalone model with all the best options fitted as standard. Thus the Cooper Sport was born, and became the flagship of the Mini range. As with the previous two 'Classic' models, this version was fundamentally the same as the earlier Sports Pack models. However, it was the Sport model which received the greatest number of upgrades over the previous cars. This factory optioned limited edition model has the following special bits: - Radiator is at the front from factory (a massive upgrade well overdue for the Mini - JDM ones are off to the side as are the classic 1960s versions) - Multi-point injection (JDM ones are single point Bosch fuel injection) - Factory widebody fender flares - 13 inch Minilte Style factory alloy wheels - The traditional Old English White roof and bonnet stripes which had graced 1999 cars were removed in favour of the more modern Platinum Silver. - The most noticeable change on the inside was the replacement of the walnut dashboard with an alloy version, previously an optional extra on 1997-2000 models. - The alloy interior pack (including window winders, door pulls and door handles) was now fitted as standard. - Finally, as with the Mini Classic Cooper, the 'Cooper' logo centre caps were replaced with green 'Mini' ones, as were the logos on the steering wheels. - Nickel Silver leather seats with black facings - Rear chrome rimmed pop out windows

Best Rover Mini in Aus... Immaculate grade 4 Limited Edition BSCC factory Widebody Rover Mini. Will suit fussy owner that wants something very special. Most desirable colour and specification for collectors and resale. Genuine 50,000 kms with all Japanese provenance documentation to support the low milage for collectors and future owners. Comes with original Rover Log Books We imagine that this example has always been garaged and owned by an elderly Japanese gentleman called Kenji. We think Kenji drove this Mini seldom and sympathetically This one is super unusual in that the varnish on the wood dash is blemish free and crack free. This is the most rewarding and fun classic mini to own… Why is this? - Rust free and bog free is rare for a 60s Mini and also can be hard to find in a JDM Rover Mini - It drives beautifully and goes hard... - Factory air conditioning that works well - means it’s a pleasure to drive everyday even when it's hot in Australia... - Factory Bosch fuel injection means she starts first time every time (No more prayers required when you go to take her for a run!) - It’s got the "Tonka Tuff" Widebody look that everyone loves… as a factory specification (not retro fitted) - It’s appreciating and will continue to do so - especially as a very special Limited model in the right specification (manual, green, Widebody, low kms, BSCC). It’s fun drive at the same time it'sgoing up in value.
