1999 classic rover mini john cooper le 40

The John Cooper LE 40 was launched in 1999 with a production run of 300 units as a tribute to 40 years of the Mini and to mark the 40th anniversary of the Cooper F1 World Championship. The LE 40 was only available in the striking combination of Brooklands Green with an Old English White roof, coupled with a contrasting Grenadine Red full-leather interior trim. Each car was built to a very high specification, which included Rallye-style spot lamps, Sportspack wheel arches, 13” alloy wheels and an engine-turned dash with Magnolia faced dials.

This Mini John Cooper LE 40 was supplied new by Dixon Rover on 4th November 1999 and is a fantastic example. The Mini boasts 21000 miles from new and has been under the ownership of the same family for the past 17 years, with recurring periods unused in storage.

The exterior presents superbly and all panels are believed to be original apart from the outer door skins. The original factory spot welds are on inner wings and the original factory ‘body’ number is present on the slam panel. The Mini has its original vented sills both sides. The interior is in excellent condition and reflects the low mileage.

The Mini is sold newly serviced and MOT'd with no advisories and also benefits from a new Maniflow exhaust and four new tyres. Supplied with the Mini is a history file which includes the original stamped service book.

What our customers say

Bought my Mini Cooper sport from Phil 3 months ago. Really nice guy, very knowledgeable about Minis and would thoroughly recommend him to others. Many thanks.

Jonathan Lowe

Highly recommended. I have just been to pick up my 94 Mini Cooper and drove it back to Derbyshire without so much as a hiccup. It’s just as described if not better and Phil was a pleasure to deal with.

James

The car was perfect and the service I got from PM was top notch. No hassle, and very professional. Would definitely use them again.
