Even more fun having originally been uprated and now recommissioned. Arguably, an iconic classic – that sounds and drives as good as it looks

Typically Minis ‘perky performance; the standard 1.3l would take you from 0 to 60 in a 1.3 takes just over 11 seconds on the way to a top speed of some 92mph, BUT our mini with is upgrades delivers quite a bit more poke.

This classic Mini Mayfair has been subject to a tasteful customisation and refurbishmemt. The primary upgrades are the engine and gearbox as this now has a 1330cc Morespeed Stage 3 engine and short shift gearbox deliver a BHP of 90+ (though not tested on rolling road) . This engine as has been rebuilt both block and head

Internally the car has had tasteful improvements with wood effect dash, wooden steering wheel and stainless steel door fittings. Now an appreciating classic this car goes well, sounds great and brings a smile to the face of driver, passengers and on-lookers

Service history
There is a significant file of parts and servicing that dates backs to 1993. This includes old MOTs dating back to 2007. This file needs to be viewed to be appreciated but below are some of the highlights. Clearly the car was subject to modernisation and discrete customisation from 1999 to 2012, with the majority of work in 2011
