A stunning Rover Mini Italian Job with just one owner and 36,881 miles. 
 
EQUIPMENT
Bonnet stripes, white grille with chrome surround, body colour door mirrors, auxiliary driving lamps, unique Italian Job decal scheme and bonnet badge, black wheel arch extensions and sill finisher, tinted glass, opening rear quarter windows, Italian steering wheel badge, rake adjusting front seat squabs, laminated windscreen, twin sun visors with vanity mirrors, triple pack binnacle, rev counter, water temperature gauge, Phillips R552 3-band radio/cassette, twin door bins, rear companion boxes.

EXTERIOR
This iconic limited edition Mini is pure sporting chic finished in White Diamond, (code NMN), with unique coachwork recalling the models famous racing and rallying pedigree.  Fantastic originality will please purists with all the eye-catching Italian Job fitments still attached in immaculate order.  Wheel arches, sills and under the bonnet remain factory fresh with manufacturer stickers still on all the components.  All the tinted glass is number plate etched and the supplying dealer rear window sticker is present.  One driving lamp lens is slightly discoloured and the black bonnet stripes have faint markings, both of which do not detract from the amazing condition.  This is a Mini with a real difference and a very special little car.

INTERIOR
Immaculately tailored to the last detail with unique seat trim in black twill, (code PMA), wearing the sewn-in Italian flag badge.  All the black vinyl trimmed door and quarter casings with the red Mylar strip are spotlessly clean along with the unworn black carpet, facia and rear parcel shelf.  The 3-spoke soft feel steering wheel with the unique badge reminds the driver of the limited production run while glancing down at all the operational gauges.  The Phillips radio cassette is operation but the display is faulty.  A small section of the drivers headrest piping is split but has been colour coded.  The dealer tax disc holder and fey fob are still present.  A stylish and fun environment exactly how the manufacturer intended.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
This car is in excellent mechanical order having covered such few miles.  The engine is the 4-cylinder transverse OHV 1275cc unit which pulls strongly and is whisper quiet.  With 50bhp, progress is nippy and running costs minuscule, thanks to excellent parts availability and 54.2mpg at 56mph.  The 4-speed all synchromesh gearbox with a diaphragm spring clutch is precise and changes gear effortlessly.  If you have driven a mini before you will know it is pure fun and this example is no exception!

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Immaculate 12” white Minilite alloy wheels unique to the Italian Job are shod in branded tyres with ample tread.  The servo assisted dual line hydraulic brakes pull the car up quickly.  Very responsive handling and manoeuvrability.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied new by Ray Powell Ltd on the 18th December 1992 to Mrs Jean Leagas the new vehicle order form and sales invoice reveals the exact specification, optional extras and price paid at this time.  Remaining in her ownership throughout the cars entire life and only sold due to advancing years.  Chosen at the time due to the appeal of just 1000 units being produced for the UK market the early ownership experience was disappointing with letters of complaint exchanged between Mrs Leagas and Rover UK.  Making fascinating reading now with Rover Cars extending the Manufacturers Warranty by 12 months!  All handbooks are included and even a sales brochure unique to The Italian Job Mini from point of sale is present.  The grey A5 Mini folder contains business cards from staff members and a compliment slip with the owners scribbles on price adds provenance.  A collection of service stamps, old invoices and MOT certificates combined with just the one owner from new helps verify the 36,881 miles covered from new.


MOT Oct 2015, Approved Used Car Check and HPI Clear.
