Rare 2000 Mini Cooper Sport acquired from Britt Ekland heads to classic car auctions’ final sale of 2021
Classic Car Auctions’ final sale of 2021 is just this weekend on Saturday 11th December at Stoneleigh Park, CV8 2LZ.
The team have a superb catalogue with Everyman Classics from across the decades going under the hammer including this 2000 Rover Mini Cooper Sport directly acquired from new by Britt Ekland herself! With bond-girl provenance and model rarity, Britt’s love of the Mini began in 1964 when her then-husband Peter Sellers first introduced her to it, and this little Cooper has been loved so much that it was driven all the way to Sweden in 2014 and returning to London in 2019 where it has been ever since.
Britt acquired this late-production example and was registered on 21/12/2000 remaining in her ownership ever since and has been privately entered by herself! Finished in Solar Red with a full-length sunroof, this is the penultimate limited-edition of the classic Mini Cooper with around 2,200 built between March and October 2000. With only 44,500 miles on the clock, this really is a great opportunity. Gary Dunne, CCA’s Sales Manager commented “We are absolutely thrilled to be offering this beautiful, exquisite little Mini from Britt herself. With great provenance and well looked after, I can’t wait to see what this goes for”.
Buyers and enthusiasts alike will be able to view the cars from Wednesday 8th December, and the auction event itself will begin at 11am on Saturday 11th December in Hall 1. This gives people the opportunity to view the vehicles and really get under the hood, to make sure their next Everyman Classic is everything they hoped it would be and more.
Bidding for the sale can be done in person, online, by phone or via commission (pre-bid). For absentee bidding, please complete the registration process at least 48 hours before the auction day to ensure your registration is processed. Alternatively, if you have any questions, please email the UK Auction House Market Leaders on [email protected] or call 01926 640888.
