To immediately fall in love with the (Mini) door, this particularly beautiful bright red Primal-Mini is not factory original, but completely adapted to Regina's personal taste. The 1000 Austin Mini 1983 HLE is a classic with its own identity that was restored by her husband Andries over a period of two years.

Regina: “I am super happy with my Austin Mini 1000 HLE, every time I get in it I get a grin on my face. It is not difficult for me to be a real enthusiast. When my husband bought it, the Austin Mini 1000 HLE stood desolate in a corner begging for attention. And he received plenty of that attention through a complete restoration, installing a special interior, not to mention the beautiful bright red color combined with a white roof.”
Mini maximum in action
After the MOT, the Austin Mini 1000 HLE is ready to revive the past, and to have fun with the trendsetter of yesteryear. The world car will arouse admiration and affection. Regina proved earlier in her automotive life that a Mini is like a house on the road. The limits were explored, which prompted the children to give her Austin Mini 1000 HLE a name: Mem Verstappen!
For the real enthusiasts, there is only one Mini, and that is the original Austin. Fortunately, Andries managed to breathe new life into the classic Mini. It is clear that the mini-romance has blossomed again with Regina. In other words: All you need is… a classic Mini.
