1998 Rover Mini Paul Smith (UK Fashion Designer) Purple and lime green Limited Edition Sports Pack 

This is one of the last year models of the classic shape that wasn't ever originally offered in Australia until the recently approved full low volume compliance scheme allowed this and this vehicle has been imported from Japan where rust is not an issue and this one is in fabulous condition underbody and we have plenty more photographs than the 12 shown in this advert of the car in general but particularly that show off the condition of the underside so just ask for photos. We also have at our workshop a 4 post hoist where we can place it up high and show this off in more detail so come and take a look.  

So we were delighted to see up close this one when it arrived and knew we had again nailed a nice one to be able to offer out and this car shows 19000kms on the clock and one must deduce that this means 119000 overall (its not a 19000 car but it is also not a 219000 car). Body and paint. mechanicals. interior. underbody are in well above average fabulous condition. OK so this shape started with Morris and Austin and then Leyland changed the appearance slightly in the late 70's but then Rover very smartly resurrected the original look started over 60 years ago so with that old skool "Italian Job" shape preserved. Rover have combined this with all the modern appointments of a Twin Point EFI 1275cc motor. air-conditioning. full leather interior. Air Bags. colour matching dash. yellow oversized fog lights and covers. Cooper S suspension. spotlights. oversized sports pack factory alloy wheels - all beautiful and modern appointments particularly on the inside and this model sadly finished production in year 2000 when BMW took it all over - note this is not a BMW MINI that started 2002 that purists consider "not a real Mini".

This car has great purple paint inside and out. full black leather interior and matching purple dashboard and black carpet and purple mats and we have after ordering a new roof headliner from UK just had a whole new beautiful black headliner fitted (at purchase and fitting cost of $1500). There are new black tyres that are complimented by chrome grille. door handles and bumpers. But look further. this is a limited edition "Paul Smith" car that mimmicks his designer shirts that is also complimented by his famed signature lime green engine rocker cover and HT leads. inside the boot with a green solid boot liner and glove compartment interior and also sporting a lime green map of England "British Isle" of the front grill. "Paul Smith" scripted instrument graphics and 9ct gold emameled "Paul Smith" bonnet badge. These have been dubbed Minis most luxurious production minis and best equipped limited edition Minis ever made. For those that are not aware Paul Smith is a famous UK fashion designer who collaborated over a limited edition in March 1998 of only 300 limited run Paul Smith blue models for the UK market and production of 1500 for the rest of the world where for the Japanese market they were made available in Old English White and Anthracite Black (together with air-conditioning) and in some other countries sporting 86 different coloured stripes. This was the first design attempt as part of a run of Great Brits Minis - others being David Bowie's chromed Mini. Natasha Caine's bullion Mini. Kate Moss's Spider Web Mini and the 'Design a Mini' competition winner Mark Ward's clock cogs Mini.

Offer price of $20990 includes the $4500 + tyres spend on full compliance on arrival - this is not a personal import that avoids this "must spend" work as a condition of import and hence to enable registration on Australian roads. This car currently is not yet registered but in a step in that direction has RWC written out already so is included for Qld buyers and we can arrange to have 6 months registration of this vehicle on behalf of Qld buyers at our cost and for interstate buyers we will pay the price of airfare to come and inspect this vehicle in order for one to be fully satisfied with and experience firsthand this cars uniqueness. driveability and fabulous condition for it's age where you can drive it home on our purchased permit or alternatively take our word for what a cool car this is and purchase right now and we will pay the intertstate transport to your doorstep to any location Australia-wide including WA.
