Full description


A one-off creation Mini Cooper Replica known as ‘Tango’.
Body coloured wide wheel arch spats, chrome bumpers, door handles and grille, driving lamps, integrated LED daytime running lights, rear fog light, clear rear lighting and side repeaters, roof mounted Bee-Sting aerial, electric windows, cool blue LED interior lights, Bluetooth hands free telephone system, digital clock, charcoal sports instrumentation, premium sound system, chrome sports steering wheel, heated rear window, two-speed heater.   

This stunning Mini is finished in vibrant Orange.  A beautiful depth of shine is created due to the extra coat of clear lacquer applied and there is no hiding with this head-turning machine!  The contrasting pure white roof is pristine and all the chrome detailing has a mirror finish.  Only one small mark to the driver’s door is present.  Attention to detail is evident in all areas from innovate lighting to colour coded engine detailing allowing the owner to enter the exhibiting arena should they wish.  No usual Mini rust issues and an absolute hoot to drive, this car really is something special.

The interior of this outstanding Mini is incredible having been custom made at great expense. The sporting blend of black leather seats with orange stitching match the leather door cards, which match the deep cut pile carpets, which match the individual tailored leather dash and so the theme continues.  An amazing cool blue ambience is creating with the use of hidden LED lighting and modern features such as Bluetooth and electric windows have been expensively installed.  All sports instruments, switches gauges operate correctly.  Even the boot area has been professionally trimmed.  This is no normal Mini and is a sure crowd pleaser!

This Mini is in excellent mechanical order with the 1275cc 4-cylinder transverse OHV engine producing a healthy 50bhp and having received regular maintenance.  With some colour coded engine detailing and a full stainless steel exhaust system this car sounds as good as it looks!  A precise 4-speed manual gearbox which is light to use.  If you have driven a mini before you will know it is pure fun and this example is no exception!

Eye catching 13-inch alloy wheels as fitted to the Rover Mini Cooper Sport 500 look superb with only a few tiny marks.  Shod in brand new low profile 175/50 R13 Yokohama A539   tyres all round.  The servo assisted dual line hydraulic brakes have been upgraded and have vented discs upfront and finned drums at the rear.  Very responsive handling and manoeuvrability and surprisingly comfortable.

A comprehensive history file waits to be presented to the new owner of this one-off creation. The project commenced in 2007 from a low owner structurally sound Mini Neon purchased by father David Lewthwaite for his daughter as her first car when she turned 17.  Vast sums of money as evidenced by numerous invoices were poured into this special vehicle to make it unique and importantly safe.  Once completed and with little use a brand new Mini Convertible was ordered and the preferred choice.  The total cost of this project far exceeds the asking price and KGF Classic Cars found a new owner for the car in August 2014 in record breaking time!  The new owner, Mr Haldron, covered 4,500 miles and maintained the car impeccably before contacting us when needing to change due to work commitments and is again luckily ready for a new owner to drive, show and thoroughly enjoy!
