Mini Cooper 35
In May 1996, Rover launched the Mini Cooper 35 to celebrate the marque’s 35th anniversary. Because it is limited to only 200 units, it has become one of the most sought-after Mini Cooper among all other Minis in the MK6 generation. A look from the outside, the Mini Cooper 35 Anniversary is painted in solid almond green (HAK – BLVC1212) and old English white (NMN – BLV655) for the roof. Gun metal grey Minilite 12” sport wheel, four front spot lamps, porcelain green full leather interior and unqiue decals are other visible things on this car.
