An entertaining and nippy Rover Mini Sprite with just 25. 99 miles from new.

Black wheel arch extensions. chrome bumpers. Sprite graphics. rake adjusting front seats. three-spoke steering wheel. front seat head restraints. two-speed wipers. electric screen wash. hazard warning lights. heated rear window. rear fog lamp. water temperature gauge. twin sun visors. face level vents. ashtray. rear companion boxes.   Aftermarket accessories; matching custom colour coded dash. centre console with vents. radio/cd. 12v power supply.

The car is finished in the lustrous Henley Blue and has a beautiful depth of shine adding to the overall chic style.   All the distinguishing Sprite graphics on the rear wings and bootlid remain as does the ‘Mini' shield bonnet badge.   Model specific black grille. door handles and boot handle are in excellent condition along with the gleaming chrome bumpers.   A few age related marks/touch-ups and small dings/blisters can be seen but structurally sound.   One professional repair has been carried out on the front driver's sill.   A real crowd pleaser!

The interior of this classy Mini Sprite is in fabulous condition finished in the attractive ‘Harlequin' decor with matching door castings.    All instruments. switches gauges operate correctly and an expensive colour-keyed dash housing a glovebox. 12v power supply and modern stereo has been expertly fitted.   The headlining is tight and clean with a just a few marks and the black carpeting remains in excellent condition.   Brilliantly spacious and fun!

The car is in excellent mechanical order having covered such few miles.   The engine is the 4-cylinder transverse OHV 1300cc TBI unit which pulls strongly and producing 53bhp. The four speed manual gearbox is smooth and allows for rapid progression whilst quiet at cruise. If you have driven a mini before you will know it is pure fun and this example is no exception!

The correct wheels are present with matching trims that have been re-finished through light scuffing but remain damage free all shod in quality 145/70 X 12 tyres.   The servo assisted dual line hydraulic brakes pull the car up quickly matched with very responsive handling and manoeuvrability.


The car has MOT's dating back to 2006 making it very easy to verify the incredibly low mileage of just 25. 99.   Having had only three former keepers this example has been pampered.   All hand books exist including the Service Record book with stamps. Customer Guide booklet. Dealer Location Booklet. In-car Entertainment Booklet & Austin Rover Security Code card.   Amazingly the Mini brochure is still with the car along with a set of keys that operate all locks.   The vehicle has an MOT up until April 2014 and is taxed until December 2013.
