A Beautiful 1999 Mini Cooper 40th Anniversary
Happy New Year! First of all, thank you for supporting MalaysiaMiniLover.com for the past 9 years. In 2017, we are 10th Year Anniversary! It’s been 10 years! While we are saying goodbye to 2016, let’s check out a unique 1999 Mini Cooper 40th Anniversary Special Edition. This is the car we are going to use to welcome the New Year!
Among all the special edition Minis, this is one of the most sought-after models for all Mini collectors. If you read the complete Mini Timeline & History, you will find out that this model is actually the last generation before the Mini were replaced by the BMW MINI.
In 1999, Mini produced only 250 Mini 40th Anniversary for the UK market. It has become very precious in the car market today due to the limited production. The Mini 40th Anniversary is based on a Cooper model, however, it features Gold “Mini 40” bonnet badge, anniversary decal on the body sides, chrome “GB” on boot, color-matched leather seats with contrasting piping, alloy dashboard, chrome-detailed instruments, and a leather facia top, handbrake, and gear knob.
In General, there are four colours available, they are Island Blue (BU5), Mulberry Red (CDM – BLVC1274), Old English White (WT3), and Tahiti Blue Metallic. The one we are having here is Mulberry Red. For other colours, see: 1999 Mini 40 Anniversary, Island Blue Mini 40 LE, Mulberry Red Mini 40
Under the hood, it is powered by a 1275 cc MPi (Multi-Point Injection) engine.
It costs £10,995 for a new one in 1999. The price is definitely a lot higher for a genuine one today. On the same year, we also see the production of Mini Cooper S Touring, Mini Cooper S Sport 5, Mini Cooper S Works, as well as Mini John Cooper. It was an amazing year that marked all the special edition MK7 Mini Coopers.
