1996 Mini 1.3 SPI Kensington
The Mini SPI:
Initially launched as "car for the people", the Mini was the brainchild of Alec issigonis as being an economical and above all affordable motorcar for the masses. However, the more "life experience" the Mini obtained over the years, the more it became a fashionable "must-have" as a city car.
Towards the end of its production cycle, it was hard to imagine a more quirky and trendy car to get around town - and with it being British, with "town" we mean London. Mini used that exact product placement to their advantage in marketing the Mini just so: the most fashionable and personisable car on the face of the planet at that time. From the Mark VI onwards you could only order your Mini with the 1275 cc engine. So for all models the mechanics and underpinnings were identical, and the only differentiation in between models came from the various trim options on offer.
This Mini SPI Kensington:
One of the many "special editions" over the years was the Kensington which is considered as one of the most dainty editions of the classic Mini. The example on offer here, is one. The car on offer was originally consigned to the Netherlands on the 5th of July 1996 and was finished in Nightfire Red with a Beige leather interior and trim, the specification the car is presented in today. All Kensingtons came well-equiped from standard with 12 inch alloys, black extended wheelarches and a lovely Burr Walnut dashboard with 3 clock instrument cluster.
This motorcar has seen just 3 private owners from new and has covered a warranted 21.180 km's ever-since (that's less than 1000 km's per year over its entire lifespan!). It goes without saying the car presents itself in a remarkable original condition, and is totally in "as-new" condition throughout - mechanically as well as aesthetically. No signs of corrosion, razorsharp panelgaps, and an unwelded flooring make this specimen totally correct throughout. This Mini literally drives as well as it looks and leaves no boxes unticked. It comes complete with all origninal accessories: the jack and its original cover, owners manual, booklet pouch and two original sets of keys with keyfobs.
This gem stands ready to be inspected at our premises immediately.
Bite-size:
Very rarely have we come accross a classic Mini in such unmolested and original condition, let alone with such low warranted mileage from new. With Spring luring around the corner, what better way to experience the unparalleled joys that a classic Mini has to offer, than in a magnificant example of the fabled Kensington edition - with the roof open that is!
