4. The Ultimate Model


Paraphrasing from several official records and well reputed books, the final Mini models (produced between 1997-2000 and commonly known as the “MPI Mini’s” were the ultimate classic Mini’s.
These Mini’s were designed by Rover to give more than ever before and designed to solidify the classic Mini’s place as a British icon in order to rocket fuel the sale of the modern Mini which arrived shortly thereafter.
Why were these the ultimate Mini’s? Well there’s broadly six reasons and those reasons are that they are; more powerful, more reliable, better for motorway driving, higher quality, safer and greener. I’ll very briefly expand upon each as this is a question that we are asked a lot:
(a) More powerful because they have 20% more horsepower as standard (63bhp) compared to the earlier 1275cc models (50-53hp) and 50% more horse power when compared to the earlier 1000cc model (39hp). Such output when combined with their 700kg weight and exceptional renowned rally winning handling provides for terrific and/or terrifying fun;
(b) More reliable because the troublesome earlier carburettor, distributor and manual choke are replaced with modern multi-point fuel injection, dual spark technology and automatic choke. Such modern reliability breeds further reliability still as they are usually more factory original and well built, not modified or messed with;
(c) Better for motorway driving not just because they have more power but they also have more sound deadening, a revised gearbox ratio and new mechanical layout to reduce driving noise (earlier Mini’s roar on the motorway);
(d) Higher quality because the interior evolved, it had a higher quality dash and steering wheel and seats, higher quality gauges etc. New factory options were available such as the Sportspack;
(e) Safer because they have a drivers airbag, door safety crash bars and inertia seatbelts as well as SRS; and
(f) Greener because they had a catalytic converter as standard and lower revs.So all round, the ultimate Mini spec wise.

5. Ready to Enjoy


Having 12 months MOT with no advisories, being fully serviced and HPI clear, she is ready to enjoy. Her service includes all new Millers Classic Mini Oil, NGK spark plugs, silicone HT leads etc.

6. Condition
Having been professionally bodily restored by a reputable classic car restoration company for their director between 2019 and 2022, she gleams. Elsewhere she may have some signs of age after 23 years, but is generally in excellent condition throughout. Accordingly, this is your opportunity to own a low mileage example of one of the ultimate specified models and a model with such great provenance and additional specification. She’s beautiful and I am sure you would be very proud of her.

    However, it is important to note that Mini's are classic cars opposed to brand new cars, classic cars will have wear and tear on all parts opposed to being built to a new standard and accordingly they  will require ongoing maintenance and we cannot be held liable for any ongoing maintenance after the time of the sale.
