  • Former 'Blyton Park Rallycross Experience' car, last competitively used in 2018

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 whilst the clever retro styling nevertheless maintains close visual design connections with Issigonis's masterpiece.

This former 'Blyton Park Rallycross Experience' car was last used competitively in 2018. Previously used on a mixture of rallying mixed/surface circuits, the cars were modified road cars that were scrutineered to MSA noise regulations. It has been extensively lightened and features an integrated roll cage, with other safety features including a plumbed-in fire extinguisher, high-back bucket seats and a Sparco race steering wheel. With an odometer reading of 54,169 recorded miles and current ownership since 2019 it has had a recent alloy wheel refurbishment. The engine number reads 'D037P326' and is a 1598cc four-cylinder allied to a manual gearbox. There are no documents with the Mini and it is to be offered without reserve.
