1997 Rover Mini Cooper Sportspack 1.3 MPI


The super rare Rover Heritage Design specification, built in homage and tribute by Rover to the original 1960's infamous rally Winning Cooper S. This was a collection of factory additional extras including the special Almond Green x Old English White, Porcelain (bathtub green) interior and sixties chromework.



The iconic factory fitted "Cooper Sportspack" specification, these were very special, significantly wider, with a great presence and this awesome width to height ratio. Filled with extra goodies including extra gauges, larger wheels etc.


The ultimate production model, significantly faster, safer, more reliable, useable more fuel efficient, comfier, greener and luxurious, with better handling and they were just the ultimate car. These were over 63% more expensive to purchase than all Mini's produced beforehand because they were so much better.

Built to a fast road specification. This Mini is not for the faint hearted. Having been owned by the Director of a motorsport engine tuning company for seven years she is terrific and/or terrifying to drive, combining that awesome power to weight ratio (far upgraded) with a brand straight cut drop gear set and the iconic rally winning Mini handling.


Straight cut drop gears are a common fitment in Formula One and not every day cars, they make your car accelerate much faster between 0-100mph whilst also emitting a distinctive noise. An X pin differential allows you to handle more power, provides a smoother power delivery and reduced torque steer.

Restored and in beautiful condition.
