Aidans Mini Cooper is a pretty rare breed - with only 375 made in this colour, and only 1 of 5 known in New Zealand. What makes this Cooper different from the rest? Simply put - this is a 1999 Rover Mini Cooper Sport LE; a 40th Anniversary model designed to commemorate the winning of the british saloon car championship of 1969. As you'd expect the Sport LE has the same livery as the championship race cars including a British Vita Racing-style side decal, with a BMC-style rosette and 'Mini Cooper' logo on the boot lid.
To spice it up a little Aidan has spent a fair bit of time detailing this special car and has applied tyre decals, window tints, roof racks and semi-slick tyres! On top of this he's also fitted RGB colour changing LED headlights. Simply awesome!
