The prices for the 'classic' Mini Cooper S rise enormously. Meanwhile, such a magic box is already more expensive than a nice box Lotus Elan! In particular, the 1275 "S" is extremely popular, but much rarer 970 "S" en 1071 "S" don't stay behind either. For a beautiful, original and good one 1275 "S" 25 mille is easily paid in euros, regardless of whether the steering wheel is left or right. A warning is in place. If you are interested in such a thing, do everything possible to be sure that you are buying a genuine one. Examine the supplied registration certificate - really if Cooper 'S' on the license plate - check it chassis- and engine number, consult John Parnell's book The Original Mini Cooper and compare the images with the copy offered. There are more fake Cooper S-and in the offer than you think! Also the 'ordinary' Classic Mini Cooper is rising in price.
