Immaculate 2001 Mini Cooper sells for second time in six months.
A Mini Cooper has sold for the second time in one year, attracting a £20,000 sale price. The 2001 Rover Mini Cooper sold for £20,160 at the Charterhouse classic car auction, Somerset, on Wednesday 16 Septemer.
‘SY51 TYB’ arrived at its second auction of the year with just 204 miles on the clock, and is one of the last-of-the-line models of the original and iconic Mini Cooper.
The former owner bought the car at auction in March 2015 for £16,854, during the first Classic Car Auctions sale at Silverstone, and has now sold the car for £3306 more, just six months later.
Prior to its first sale, the Mini had enjoyed thorough care, with SY51 TYB’s original keeping the car safe in his study, and not a conventional garage, before being trailered to auction to avoid putting any more miles on it.
Elsewhere in the auction, a 1968 Ford Mustang sold for £20,000, and a 1952 Willys Jeep sold for an impressive £11,760.
