Mini Long Distance Rally Car. Resigned to the fact I will not put it back on the road any day soon (after ten years), pressures of work, no time etc. etc. Part of a two car team that had planned to circum navigate the World. Engine is a 1275cc Cooper, it pulls and accelerates quicker than any one of my Coopers. Bodywork excellent with no rusty panels. It has solid floor panels, wings, doors etc. Interior good (apart from head-lining that has shrunk and become brittle), carpets fitted but could be removed as the floors are excellent. Elephant ear front mud flaps.Roof rack with two Cooper vented steels with snow-tyres fitted as well as long range tanks. Wiper mounted wash system (heated). Boot mounted reverse light and quick-lift brackets. Rear and front mounted towing eyes. Fuel and Power lines run inside the car. Sitting on the desirable 10"  Alloy wheels with four new tyres fitted. Navigators foot rest with horn/spotlight button.Due to standing the brakes need checking/bleeding, but apart from that everything has been checked so almost MOT ready.Glacier White with 'find me in the Snow Orange'. Rally numbers on the doors have now been removed. Push Button Start and starts first time every time. Full service, plugs, oil and Millers Classic Oil, electronic ignition. Straight through centre exit up-swept exhaust (sounds gorgeous).The Registration is not included in the price.To have a car built to this standard would cost more than the advertised price.No stupid offers, these will be politely ignored.Thanks for looking.

Thank you for all your interest. This car is taking part in the 2014 Mongol Rally, 10,000 miles of feral un-supported adventuring across deserts and mountain ranges in aid of charity (search Mongol Rally). Sound like fun to you? Why don't you do something exciting with your life? This Rally takes part from London in July 2014, you are probably too late for this years event. Fancy a car for the 2015 Rally? Give me a call or drop me a line.

Sorry, the car is no longer available. It is being driven in the 2014 Mongol Rally by Mark and Steph from Australia.
