1992 Rover Mini “Cooper” 1.3 Injection (63bhp) - Genuine Cooper, High Performance, Low Miles

Being first registered on the 1st of April 1992, she is one of the very special second generation Coopers.

1. What Made the Second Generation Mini Cooper Special (1990-1996) so Special

Described by the well known author Chris Rees as “the dramatic rebirth of the Cooper legend” and by official testers as “the most fun Mini for years” , this was a very special Mini, both in speed, styling and it’s racing heritage.

A. Speed

Being at the time of launch the fastest regular production Mini since the original 60’s Cooper S, she produced 63bhp which is approximately 64% higher power than the standard 1000cc (the main production Mini at the time) (1959-1992), 26% more power than the later standard 1275cc carburettor engines (1992-1994) and 18% more power than the standard 1275cc single point injection engines subsequently launched (1994-1997). Her power was on par with the final MPI models, however she has less weight.

B. Styling

Retaining her special Cooper racing stripes, lightening bolt half black leather (red piped) interior and Cooper triple gauge (inc. rev counter) alongside many a Cooper emblem, she was very special.

C. Heritage

Infamous for their sixties rallying success, the Cooper always epitomised speed and styling, the fastest Mini model. Built in tribute, these Coopers produced between 1990-1996 were the first and only proper factory Cooper’s built since 1971. No Cooper’s were built between 1971 and 1990. The Coopers built after 1996 were a Cooper in emblem only, with no factory performance gains (except improved handling on the Sportspack and Sport, which ironically reduced their top speed and very rare John Cooper Models).

2. About Her

Retaining her original matching numbers Cooper engine and having covered but 59,000 miles (mileage records below), she drives beautifully with that rally winning unique Mini handling which provides terrific and/or terrifying fun.

She’s a very original example, retaining her original Cooper lightening bolt black leather interior, steering wheel and triple green Cooper gauges. Being thirty years old and very original she will have signs of age, but she is a very nice example.

3. Ready to Enjoy

Having had her engine professionally set-up, her brakes serviced and her engine serviced (Millers oil, filter, NGK spark plugs) and coming with 12 months MOT and no advisories, she is ready to enjoy. She currently has a union jack on her roof, however this is just a sticker and could be removed by the new keeper if wished.
