Auctioneers Notes This is the most amazing mini re-creation I have ever seen. It is as near to perfection as you can get. Buy the MiniWorld Magazine, February 2019 edition, and you will find a 7 page write-up including pictures. Thousands of pounds have been spent on this car and when I asked the vendor how much it cost him to create this beautiful car, he said, I do not know, possibly 20k or more. He went on to say that he wanted to create a perfect Mini of the seventies look with a performance of a Cooper S. He certainly has done that and she sounds fantastic. You might ask, like I did, why is he selling this car, he gets his greatest satisfaction from creating something special. He said it sits in the garage and we hardly ever use her and I have another project which I want to get on with. Immense history file. You may come and look and enjoy this spectacular car, by appointment. Following on from this write up is the vendor’s notes on all the work he has put into this vehicle.
