Lot 389: Mini Cooper S Auto Clubman Estate

The Beaulieu Sale, Bonhams (7 September 2013)

The original, iconic Mini was always going to be a hard act to follow but the new 21st Century Mini, created by brand owners BMW, has taken over where the old one left off, immediately establishing itself as a chic mode of transport for fashion-conscious urbanites as well as an immense commercial success. Launched as a three-door hatchback, which many maintain is what the original should have been from the outset, the new Mini is bigger in every respect than its forebear while the clever retro styling nevertheless maintains close visual links with Issigonis's masterpiece. This one-owner, right-hand drive Cooper S Auto Clubman has covered 32,000 kilometres (approximately 19,900 miles) from new. Its accompanying specification sheet reveals that this exceptionally well equipped car was delivered with the multi-function sports wood-rim steering wheel; exterior mirror pack; heated mirrors/washer jets; Chrome Line interior; visibility pack; anthracite roof lining; auto-dim interior mirror; park distance control; rain sensor and 'lights on'; automatic air conditioning; hi-fi speaker system; navigation system, etc. Originally finished in Hot Chocolate metallic with matching interior, it has been refinished in a special 'basket weave' colour scheme by P&A Wood. Described as in generally good condition, this unique Mini Cooper S is offered with MoT to November 2013 and Swansea V5C document. A spare set of winter tyres and a roof box is included in the sale.
