We are very pleased to offer a stunning ultra low mileage 1990 Rover Mini Cooper RSP. Finished in Black with a contrasting white roof and bonett stripes, this time warp Mini Cooper has covered only five thousand miles in 30 years with only 1 previous owner and has spent most of Its life carefully stored and presereved. It was regisetered in October 1990 and supplied by F.J Keen & Sons in London and is accomapanied with the original bill of sale, service and handbooks and a raft of service receipts. This Cooper still wears its original supplying dealer plates and its original key ring. RSP was a special department inside Rover and it stood for Rover Special Products. 1600 RSP Minis were produced as a pre production Mini Cooper, 1050 stayed in the UK in three colours and very few remain in this condition. They have many unique details that were only ever fitted to the RSP such as the sunroof, Minilte wheels with a unique stud pattern, embossed leather seats, colour coded arches and mirrors, unique spotlights, there are other details which I am happy to confirm this example has all of them and is correct.

On the road this Cooper is a real experience. I can only describe it as getting as close as possible to driving a Mini Cooper in 1990. It still feels new, the engine is super smooth and free revving and the gearbox has a slick and precise change. RSP Minis were fitted with the MG Metro engine and they were known to perform very well,hence why so few are left! They also have an oil cooler. The perfomance will certainly surprise you and depsite its ultra low mileage this is a real drivers machine and very useable. We have just replaced its original Pirelli tyres with four wider profile 165 Falken tyres so its new owner can get it out on the open road and enjoy this fantastic machine.

The interior is in its complete factory specification and shows no real sign of use. The seats, carpets and roof liner are all like new. The three clock binnacle with rev counter has geen dials, the steering wheel is finished in red leather and the original Rover Cassete player is all present and correct and it also has the correct sunroof made by Tudor Webasto. The seats are the same pattern as the Mini 30, half leather with a Mini Cooper logo tab. Its just a pleasure to sit in this car!

As you can imagine, this RSP has a wonderful preserved body shell and its been a pleasure to work on. It still has its factory coating of grease on the underside and shows no evidence of any paint or repairs, and has its all its original panels. We have fully serviced it and checked it and it also has a full years MOT. This is a fantastic oppurtunity to acquire a real piece of Classic Mini Cooper history in such a wonderful preserved condition that belies its 30 year vintage whilst still being a very useable car that can be driven and enjoyed like a Cooper should.

Viewings are welcome and I am happy to answer questions you may have either through here or on the details below or the details below (Paul)
