By 1989 Rover had assumed responsibility for Mini production and was producing sporty looking versions named the Flame Red, Racing Green & Checkmate (black) running with 998cc engines. The Mini looked domed but the Cooper brand re-ignited interest for the Mini. The MPI was the final version, twin point injection with a front mounted radiator. Full-width dashboards replaced the original shelf. An airbag was introduced on driver's side. The main noticeable difference, from the outside on many MPI models are the 13” alloys and wider wheel arches. Many examples have these along with full leather seats ordered as a factory option. The lights were moved to the indicator stalk and a headlight height adjuster fitted.
The example offered here is a lovely example of a late 12 wheeled Mini Cooper in Pearlescent British Racing Green with a White roof. This is a high specification car with Full Cream Leather seats and interior. Only 4 owners from new with Full Service History confirming the 41,000 miles to be genuine.
