Classic Car Auctions says:

This special little car started life as a standard 1987 Mini City E built at the Longbridge plant between 1984-89. Over the last six years the current owner has had it professionally transformed into an insurance friendly Cooper-esque beauty. Sitting squatter and wider on alloy wheels, this car is splendid in bright yellow / white. It comes with a full restoration file documenting all the work. With its buzzy 998cc engine combined with the more sporting look, this Mini would make an ideal first car.
