Supplied new by Clover Leaf Cars Ltd, Alton to Mr William John Romano Govett in September 1990, finished in Red with a contrasting white roof and iconic John Cooper stripes and decals. The Cooper S RSP (Rover Special Production) was only available in the year of 1990. Only 1,050 of 1,600 cars were supplied to the UK market, making it a rare example. The little Mini benefitted from a respray in 2020 due to paint fade, not due to rust, evidenced with photographs in the history file. The bodywork appears to be straight and solid and the 1275cc engine feels spritely on the roads. This Cooper S RSP wouldn’t look out of place in any collection and offered with an extensive history file, surely values of these are on the rise.


Sold for £8,960
