Lot No. 210 - 1999 Rover Mini Paul Smith LE

Sold for: £5,060

A rare classic 'Paul Smith' limited edition Rover Mini showing just 62,000 miles. This desirable, original UK supplied car is believed to be one of only 300 built by Rover for the UK market and is based on the Mini Sprite with the 1275cc engine fitted.  We are told this car has travelled very few miles since a respray in the correct shade of Paul Smith Blue late last summer, and naturally the bodywork was fully prepared prior to painting. Two brand new Falcon tyres on the front have been fitted and a fresh MoT certificate will be issued before the Auction with a March 2017 expiry. Owned by the vendor, a Mini enthusiast, for the last five years, this attractive Mini is said to drive and run as it should. The standard Rover multi-point fuel injection makes this an easy and reliable entry into classic Mini ownership, with the 1275 cc engine easily keeping up with modern traffic.  The Paul Smith refinements include unique Paul Smith Blue paintwork, black leather interior, magnolia dials, black and silver rose petal alloys, lime green details in the interior, boot and engine bay and the gold Paul Smith bonnet badge. A sound, clean and tidy 'limited edition' Mini in an amazing colour.
