Welcome to this Rare chance to own a very special John Cooper Sport 5 finished in Night Fire Red with an Old English white roof. Only twenty-five of these special Minis were produced making them, we believe, the rarest of all Minis and were produced by John Cooper Garages exclusively in 1997 only. What made them so special was the adoption of the 5-speed gearbox built by Jack Knight Developments and fitted by John Cooper carrying the ‘JKD’ stamping. The end result was the fastest production Mini ever produced with a 105 mph top speed and 0-60 in 8.8 seconds.
This Stunning little car has only covered 39000 miles in 22 years. The Mini is No. 004 of the original John Cooper Sport 5 Works production run. Having been garaged throughout its life and only really used as a toy the Mini can only be described as close to perfect as a 22-year-old Mini can be. Paintwork is outstanding, blemish free and holds a lovely deep shine! Driving this Mini is a joy, lots of power when needed but comfortably cruises down the motorway all day long. Recently undergone light restoration by its previous owner to a very high standard which included
Full repaint, Wheels refurbished, All new stainless parts, New tyres, New exhaust, New Wood dash, New sticker kit & bonnet strips.
All servicing was carried out by John Cooper Garages until they stopped providing the service and closed for business. Servicing after this has been carried out at other specialist garages. The service history also includes the original sales brochures from John Coopers.
I believe the Sport 5 is the rarest Works car John Cooper garages produced, go find another like this!
