More Minis and two motocar charity lots - for sale with H&H Classics

02.11.2016: 1990 Rover Mini Cooper ‘RSP’ with just 293 miles on the clock Anyone who fancies gearing up for some ‘Italian Job’ style

1990 Rover Mini Cooper ‘RSP’ with just 293 miles on the clock




Anyone who fancies gearing up for some ‘Italian Job’ style fun can indulge in a choice of no fewer than seven Minis - four more than featured in the film’s iconic getaway sequence – at the H&H Classics sale on November 16th at Donington Park.



The stars of ‘The Italian Job’ were three Mk1 Austin Mini Cooper S's, in red, white and blue.  At the hands of the film stunt drivers these cars became legends.



Not many modifications were needed for the wow factor stunts as the Coopers were race bred and so were incredibly hardy. The only real problem that they posed for the stunt drivers was their low ground clearance.




H&H Classics will offer the following Minis at Donington



* 1990 Rover Mini Cooper ‘RSP’ – 293 miles from new. The first Mini to be badged as a Cooper in a generation, the ‘RSP’ (Rover Special Products) model is highly sought after by collectors. Estimated at £17,500 - £22,500, this extremely low mileage example has been cherished by its two registered keepers.



* 1989 ERA Mini Turbo – 18,000 miles from new. Original book pack including service book. Number 12 of just 337 made (many of which went to Japan). The fastest classic Mini variant thanks to its punchy turbocharged 1275cc engine, the ERA was also among the rarest. Estimate: £14,000 - £16,000



*Red Mini Sprite1996 CC1275 Trim Colour Black MOT E,xpiry Sept 2017 Estimate £4000 – 5000.



* 1969 Austin Mini 1000 MKII Countryman – 1 of just 58 Austin Mini MKII ‘Woodies’ known to the Mini Register. Entered from a private collection and the subject of much past restoration work. Estimate: £11,000 - £13,000



* 1985 Mini 1000 City E – current family ownership since 1993. Extensively restored some ten years ago and uprated with a 1293cc engine and gearbox. Estimate: £2,500 - £3,500



* 1982 Mini Mayfair – Marketed as an upmarket version of the Mini perfect for the sophisticated urbanite, the Mayfair was more expensive and better trimmed than its siblings. Subject to some cosmetic restoration last year and MOT’d until July 2017, this particular automatic example is offered for sale at No Reserve.


* 1996 Rover Mini Sprite – Distinctively registered as ‘M1 NYW’ (Mini W) and in the current ownership since 1999, this particular example was treated to a repaint in 2004 and is understood to have covered just 69,700 miles. Estimate: £4,000 - £5,000



* 1986 Mini Mayfair – current family ownership from new. Kept garaged and repainted in 2011, this beloved Mayfair is offered for sale with a MOT certificate valid until September 2017. A manual example showing some 48,000 miles, it is estimated at £3,000 - £4,000.



Despite the fundamental brilliance of Sir Alec Issigonis’ ground breaking design, the Mini only took off when celebrities like Paul McCartney and Twiggy bought them. Then the sales went crazy and in 'swinging' London it quickly became the coolest car to be seen in.



At the Donington auction H&H Classics will also sell a low mileage Bentley Turbo R LWB sports saloon to benefit the ‘Help for Heroes’ charity (1 of 1,211 made) and a Mercedes-Benz C180 Saloon to benefit the Cai Dai Trust.
