|Rally Preparation Services is very excited to offer this extremely rare Prodrive edition Mini Cooper S All4 Countryman, this car being one of only three units ever produced and sold by Prodrive. One owner from new, finished in Royal Grey Metallic with Gravity black leather and literally thousands of pounds worth of options added when the order was placed.|
Back in the 1960s if you wanted a higher performance Mini, John Cooper was the tuning expert – so much so that even the British Motor Corporation (BMC) used his expertise and badged their cars with his name. Fast Mini road cars bearing the Cooper name produced by BMC had very many significant race and rally wins which are these days the tales of legend and still actively campaigned today; the modern owners of the Mini brand BMW have duly carried the Cooper model name forward on the contemporary high performance versions.
The world moves on and 40 odd years later the Mini was set for a return to top level rallying. The BMW factory sought guidance from Prodrive, the modern-day rally experts to help them with their targeted challenge of the World Rally Championship. Prodrive then carried out extensive work developing and testing what was to become the Mini WRC in 2011 and entered the team for the 2012 World Rally Championship, with its usual first calendar event the Monte Carlo Rally. On this first outing the Mini WRC finished a remarkable 2nd overall – once more proving the heritage that lied within.
All the top line teams in the World Rally Championship use additional cars on events for the crews to use while making pace notes or to take gravel notes or even ice notes to send back to the rally drivers. It was the lessons learned and the knowledge gained here that directly led Prodrive to consider building the ultimate Mini Countryman road car. The team at Prodrive signed off the Mini Cooper S All4 Countryman as the car of choice and settled on the listed upgrades and improvements and the result is an extremely competent road car.
This 2014 car with chassis number “Prodrive R60 WRC 002” started life as a tick all the options boxes order for a new LHD car. Originally registered in Switzerland, Rally Preparation Services registered the car here in the UK in November 2018 (to the same and current owner). The Mini has covered just 32000 miles.
Cost new (at today’s exchange rate) was in excess of £58,000 including the Prodrive upgrades. Four additional 18” alloy road wheels with winter tyres are included.
This is an unusual opportunity to acquire an incredibly rare and very special car.
The car is currently with Rally Preparation Services sister Company, the SASCo storage facility and available for inspection.
