Rover Mini John Cooper Works S LE 61000 Miles (Three Owners)
Welcome to the sale of this very rare Works S LE finished in Brooklands Green with an Old English White roof. This limited edition model was created to pay tribute not only to the Mini’s fortieth year, but also the fortieth anniversary of the Cooper F1 World Championship. Available only in the striking combination of Brooklands Green and Old English White, with a Grenadine Red Leather interior. Think of this as the Mini 40’s Cooperised cousin. Officially, 300 were produced in total. However, John Cooper’s wife wanted a new Cooper LE after they had all sold out. In response, Rover built an additional Y-plate car for her, pushing the production total up to 301. This Cooper has the added and very RARE S Works kit which was fitted in 2003 by John Cooper garages. This kit included a stage 3 cylinder head, roller rockers, performance exhaust manifold, Janspeed upswept exhaust, bigger airbox with a KN fitted. The result takes the car up to 90BHP which gives the Mini much more Performance throughout the rev range.
This car has won three trophies, 1st place London to Brighton 2015, 2nd place London to Brighton in 2008 & 1st at the Cooper register day in 2015. These trophies confirm just how special this car is. All three trophies are with the car and part of the Minis history.
Restored by Wood & Pickett of London in 2015 at a cost of 6000 pounds, the condition is extremely good and more replicates a 20000-mile car! Lots of little extras around the car, the most noticeable being the gold 13inch super light wheels with Yokohama tires. The other noticeable item is the Moto-Lita wood steering wheel which really sets the inside off, very expensive upgrade!
The service history is excellent, all its previous mots, lots of service bills, fully stamped service book and the original John Cooper garages invoice showing this is a genuine car.
This is a truly RARE opportunity to own a very special car that needs to be cherished by its next owner. This is the only one for sale in the Uk and rarely come up for sale.
Part exchange welcome.
Can be delivered at extra cost to Uk/Europe
