SUMMARY

A rare Cooper 'Sport' owned from new by the famous Swedish actress.

DESCRIPTION

  • The penultimate limited-edition of the classic Mini Cooper was the 'Rover Mini Cooper Sport' with around 2,200 built between March and October 2000
  • Externally they could be distinguished by their muscular stance with flared wheel arches and 13" sports alloy wheels, four spot lamps and Platinum-coloured roof and bonnet stripes
  • The 'Sport' also featured an updated interior with stylish nickel-silver and black leather trim, drilled and polished alloy door and window handles, and a Sport dash in turned alloy silver and black finish
  • Finished in Solar Red with a full-length sunroof, this late-production example was purchased new by Britt Ekland, registered on 21/12/2000 and has been in her ownership ever since
  • Britt Ekland is best known for her film career including Get Carter, The Wicker Man and The Man with the Golden Gun
  • Her then-husband, Peter Sellers, introduced Britt to the Mini in 1964 and her love of the cars has stayed with her right up to today, owning this little Cooper from new in 2000
  • She enjoyed driving it so much that she took it to Sweden in 2014 and subsequently returned to the UK bringing it back with her. The NOVA has been applied for and will follow
  • MOT valid until 7/10/2022 with only one advisory
  • There have been a few cars previously offered at auction that have been in Britt's possession at some point, however, this is the only one that has been owned by her from new and privately entered by herself
  • With Bond-girl provenance and model rarity, this smart 'Sport' appears very sensibly guided 

Professional images to follow shortly.
