A lot of us would love to have an original Mini, but often we're not willing to give up creature comforts. That's what makes this one so appealing. It's a 1994 Rover Mini in Japanese spec, which gives you right-hand drive appeal and updates like a fuel-injected powerhouse.
We know you love the look of these original Minis. The shape is unmistakable, and you can't help but smile at this icon. And this one was built to really maximize its status. The black paint gives this a nice contrast to show off the iconic grille, chrome bumpers, and upgraded clear tail lights. The bright exhaust tip looks sporty, and the minilite-style wheels have a wide stance of a performance Cooper appearance. So you can tell this is a driver's car. That's why it's nice to have a driver-quality finish to the paint that won't make you nervous about enjoying this Mini. But if you are looking for a true show-worthy style, you can see the good body panels give you a solid base for whatever future plans you may have.
Part of what made the Mini so revolutionary was that despite its diminutive size, pushing the wheels to corners meant four people could genuinely fit inside. But while those roots are utilitarian, this later one received all the best factory upgrades to give it a level of comfort that the early ones could only dream about. The front bucket seats have comfortable contouring; there's an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth; and this even has provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) It's a true British icon, so even though this is a Japanese-spec model, people will be happy to see you arrive with the driver on the right.
Under the hood is the correct 1275cc four-cylinder engine. This A+ Series motor is a well-known and widely used powerplant that found a home in plenty of British vehicles, which makes parts availability quite easy. You can see it's well maintained, including newer items like the belt, hoses, and wires. This was the largest engine that could fit in these little cars, and because this was part of the final series, it was even upgraded to fuel injection. That means 60+ horsepower, which is going to give you impressive performance for a car of this size - especially under the control of the four-speed manual transmission. Combine the quick nature with front disc brakes and steering that is so exact it feels telepathic, and you've got in your hands all the reasons why people are passionate about driving.
Complete with import paperwork, this Mini has an intoxicating mix of iconic style and later features. We already seldom see original Minis, so it may be some time before you get another chance at a peppy fuel-injected one like this again. Call today!!!
