The Classic Sale at Silverstone Festival 2023 Cars 282 Registration: LG05 XMD Chassis No.: WMWRC32070TG53288 Estimate: £30,000 - £35,000 Specialist: Joseph Watts Telephone No: 07779 082707 Lot 757 2005 Mini Cooper ‘World Cup Limited Edition’ - 59 Miles From New The car presented here is very interesting indeed - looking past the standard Cooper model, spec and colours (115bhp, 1.6-litre engine driving the front wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox, black leather/cloth interior, air conditioning, electric windows/mirrors and Chilli Red paintwork complete with white bonnet stripes and roof finished with the flag of Saint George) and even past its incredible as new condition, and even further past its single-owner status and amazingly-low mileage of just 59 miles, this is rather special. This is one of only five examples officially commissioned for Martin Johnson’s testimonial year, and released in celebration of England’s victory over Australia on 22nd November 2003, to win the Rugby World Cup - with all 22 squad members’ hand-written autographs adorning the roof (reassuringly, a lacquer was originally applied to the roof to protect the autographs). Accompanying the car is the original owner’s book-pack, purchase paperwork, two keys, and the Logbook of Authenticity, again complete with the England squad signatures. We understand this Mini was originally sold for £90,000 at auction, so is guided attractively here. This autographed Mini Cooper Rugby World Cup Edition represents an exciting opportunity for any collector of limited-edition Minis or a serious rugby fan. Perhaps the ultimate piece of memorabilia for any sport/motoring fanatic, this car marks an amazing achievement by what is considered the best-ever England rugby team. One of just five Mini Coopers signed by each member of the 2003 England World Cup-winning team; as new with just 59 miles and one previous owner. More Details Lot 757 Bid On Lot 757
