Classic Car Auctions says:

Stored from new in timewarp condition...Out of hibernation for the first time in over twenty years is this remarkable 1990 Limited Edition Mini Cooper, presented in its original British Racing Green lustre with a contrasting grey velour interior and an indicated mileage of 292!!. The tax disc shows the car last being on the road in 1991, so one assumes it was taxed from new for a year then stored away.
Showing one registered keeper, the car comes with all of its original dealer handbooks, service book and also the original bill of sale (£7,417.00). The car does roll and the engine does turn, however, it has been in storage for 26 years and the decision was taken to leave it as it is. Naturally, it will need re-commissioning before it is started and a good clean and polish will have it road ready. This is a very special little car that is rarely offered with this sort of mileage.
