Austin Mini Mk1 Cooper S (1967).
Most powerful version of the sixties icon, restored and immaculate.
It was a great pleasure to find another immaculate Mini Mk1 Cooper S. These fantastic little cars are very sought after these days, and for that reason difficult to find. This is the ultimate sports version of the classic Mini, and being a Mk1 it is the most interesting model fot the serious collector.
This particular example is completely restored two years ago, and is still in as new condition. Finished in beautiful Almond Green in combination with the correct white top, it looks stunning. The interior is finished in Dove Grey with Porcelain Green, as original. The front seats are period bucket seats, which is quite a necessary option if you drive this little machine as it should be driven....
The engine is very powerful and sounds like a proper competition machine. It goes like one as well. The gearbox is very smooth and quick, and steering and brakes match the performance. Each classic car magazine rates the Mk1 Cooper S very high in their top ten of favourite sports cars, and if you make a testdrive with this example you will exactly understand why they do this. It is not a cheap car, but it is in pristine condition and still a lot less expensive then any exotic sportscar that will give you similar thrills !
