Paul Smith Mini
Year: 1998 / Mileage: 52000 / Price: SOLD
Extensive History / HPI clear
Sold as a commission sale on behalf of our client.
Of all the many variants of the Mini, this Paul Smith limited edition is surely one of the most exclusive. With just 1800 produced, 300 were built for the UK market in blue. The remaining 1500 were destined for the export markets in white and Anthracite black.
Fashion designer Paul Smith was commissioned by Rover to wave his style wand over this iconic car. From black leather interior to Minilite style wheels in body colour to gold badging and citrus green interior and boot accents this car looks very stylish.
Fitted with a 1275cc engine with fuel injection and a 3 speed auto gearbox (most were then exported to the Far East) this all black version was produced in 1998 for Japan and imported back to the UK in April 2008. The car has had 2 UK owners. The current owner has owned since 2008.
The handbooks are all present with the car but are obviously in Japanese text. The car has some history but comes with 12 MOTs which runs until October 2021 with no advisories. The mini has only covered 5000 miles in the past 13 years. Please also note the speedo is calibrated in KMs and not MPH as UK cars are.
There are also the appropriate import documents showing type approval and certificate of conformity which are required to register the car legally in the UK.
The bodywork is generally in good condition with some age related marks the Mini has acquired in its 23 years on the road.
The interior is immaculate with little wear on the seat bolsters and being a Japanese spec car it comes with air conditioning which blows ice cold.
Some history and MOT with no advisories.
