MINI Cooper S met meer dan 138pk

De Mini Cooper S werd wereldberoemd na het winnen van de Rally van Monte Carlo in de jaren 1964, 1965 en 1967. Ook in 1966 bereikten de kleine scheurijzertjes als 1e, 2e en 3e de finish maar besloot de Frans jury aan de hand van de gebruikte verlichting op de Mini tot diskwalificatie. Daarbij ging de overwinning naar het Franse(!) Citroën. Sindsdien heeft het model altijd een hoofdrol gespeeld in de autosport.

MINI Cooper S

Deze MINI Cooper S met meer dan 138pk wordt in eigen land te koop aangeboden door Catawiki en is waarschijnlijk een van de meest spectaculaire straatlegale exemplaren van de hot hatch die je op dit moment kan kopen. Kosten noch moeite zijn bespaard om de ultieme MINI te bouwen. De auto werd in september 2000 voor het eerst op kenteken gezet als Rover Mini Cooper S Knightsbridge, gedurende de jaren 2012 tot en met 2015 is er gewerkt aan de conversie door Cooperworld. Daarna is er slechts 2.500km mee gereden.
