Description: 1997 Rover Mini Cooper Série Spéciale 35e Anniversaire
No reserve

Titre de circulation belge
Châssis n° SAXXNNAZRBD138826

- 19 km d''origine seulement !
- Désirable série spéciale
- État très proche du neuf
- Sans réserve

Cette voiture est exceptionnelle pour deux raisons : d''abord, elle n''affiche que 19 km d''origine et se présente donc dans un état quasiment neuf, et ensuite il s''agit d''une version 35e Anniversaire, dotée d''une finition spéciale. Son équipement très complet comporte notamment une sellerie cuir, un tableau de bord bois, une alarme antivol, des vitres teintées, des jantes en alliage, des barres de renfort dans les portes, des phares antibrouillard, un pommeau de levier de vitesses gainé de cuir...
Elle a été achetée par son premier propriétaire chez le concessionnaire Rover d''Eupen, en Belgique près d''Aix-la-Chapelle, pour le prix de 499 950 francs belges. Il a décidé de la conserver telle qu''elle était car il était amoureux du modèle et en a donc pris livraison sur remorque avant de faire procéder à la première révision, un mois après l''achat. La voiture, de teinte "Almond Green", a été achetée par la suite par un important collectionneur français. En plus de son état proche de sa sortie d''usine, elle est accompagnée de tous les documents d''origine, comme le bon de commande, l''original de la facture d''achat, jusqu''à l''étiquette comportant le numéro d''ordre, suspendue au rétroviseur. Il s''agit sans doute de l''exemplaire le plus neuf de ce modèle que l''on puisse trouver, ce qui ne devrait pas laisser indifférents les amateurs !



Belgian title
Chassis n ° SAXXNNAZRBD138826

- 19 km from new!
- Desirable special series
- Almost new condition
- No reserve

This car is exceptional for two reasons: firstly, it has only 19 km on the odometer, thus it is in nearly new condition. Secondly, it is a 35th Anniversary version with special finish. Its complete set of equipment includes leather upholstery, a wooden dashboard, alarm system, tinted windows, alloy wheels, side impact bars in the doors, fog lamps, leather-wrapped shift knob...
It was bought by its first owner from the Rover dealer in Eupen, Belgium near Aachen, for the price of Belgian Fr 499,950. He decided to keep the car as it was, because he was in love with the model, and therefore took delivery of the car on a trailer, before its first service one month after the purchase of the car. The car, in an "Almond Green" hue, was subsequently bought by a major French collector. In addition to its almost new condition, it comes with all original documentation, including the purchase order, the original purchase invoice and even the order label suspended at the rear view mirror. This is probably the "newest" example of this model that can be found, which cannot leave enthusiasts indifferent!
