2000 classic rover mini john cooper le 40

The Mini John Cooper LE 40 was released in 1999 with a production run of 300 units as a tribute to 40 years of the Mini and to pay homage to the 40th anniversary of the Cooper F1 World Championship. The LE 40 was only available in Brooklands Green with an Old English White roof and bonnet stripes, over a contrasting Grenadine Red leather interior trim. Each car was built to a very high specification, which included Rallye-style spot lamps, Sportspack wheel arches, 13'' Minilite alloy wheels, radio/CD stereo and an engine-turned dash with Magnolia faced dials.

Originally supplied by Skinners Rover on 7th January 2000, this Mini John Cooper LE 40 displays 51,000 warranted miles from new and is a splendid example. According to the accompanying documentation, the car spent its first eight years as a daily driver before retiring to life as a classic toy, with recurring periods spent in storage. She has clocked just 8,000 miles in the past six years and has been maintained regardless of expense, with £5,000 spent in the past eleven months alone to ensure excellent all-round condition.

The Mini is sold newly serviced and MoT’d and benefits from a new cat, CV joint, alternator, rear brake disks, ignition leads, windscreen and refurbished alloy wheels. Supplied with a comprehensive history file enclosing a fully stamped service book, owner’s handbooks, original sales brochure and sundry invoices detailing mileage and works completed.

What our customers say

I have just sold my 2001 Rover Mini Cooper Sport to Phil Mires. During the process, I have been impressed with the professional attitude and genuine support received. I was very impressed by his knowledge and vision. First class methodology and extremely prompt payment make this endorsement easy to write. I wish him every success for the future.

Alan MacDonald

Phil is a really genuine, honest, respectful and polite man to deal with. He was very flexible and made our transaction very smooth, even completing all the paperwork and kept me fully informed throughout. I would not hesitate to use the company again. Thank you Phil.

Gemma Page

From start to finish Phil was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Knowledgeable, professional and kind. I absolutely adore my new (but old!) Mini Cooper. She's a beauty! Would definitely recommend and if I'm in the market for a classic again, Phil Mires Classic Cars would be my first port of call.
