motodrome are pleased to offer this gorgeous, low mileage, low owner, very high spec 1999 Rover Mini Cooper 1.3i, finished in metallic British Racing Green with White roof, and Ash Grey full piped leather and walnut interior.
V837 XUB has both a wonderful story to tell, and a very unusual specification in that it was fitted from new with both automatic transmission and air conditioning, making it a wonderful city car. The automatic and air con spec is more associated with Japanese-market cars, but this one is an original UK-supplied one.
First registered 02/12/1999, at the end of August 2000 it was purchased from the franchised dealer Marshalls of Cambridge by a Dr Lau, who kept the car, used it sparingly, and cared for it meticulously right up until March 2023, so almost 23 years.
Dr Lau bought the car when it had covered a mere 484 miles, and it now has just under 27000 miles on the odometer.
Externally, fitted with the correct white mirrors, front spotlamps, bonnet stripes, 12in replica Minilite alloy wheels, and the correct flared wheelarches.
Internally it’s original and rather superb, with it’s black full leather seats (piped cream and with the embossed Cooper logo on the front seats), full walnut trim, original duotone steering wheel etc. And of course air conditioning.
We have a massive stack of service history with it including the original service book with details of 19 services therein, a big file of bills, and MOT’s back to 2003.
We have the original book pack and 2 sets of keys.
It will come with a fresh 12M MOT and 6 months warranty on sale, and it will be serviced again before it goes to a new owner
A great classic Mini Cooper with a high specification and low ownership and mileage – I really like it
