It's a cool car; it's an economy car; it's a sports car - the 2006
Mini Cooper fits all the definitions you could ever want in a
useful future classic. And while there are plenty of different ways
of looking at this car, all of them are exceptionally
The appeal of this car is as clear as black and white...literally.
The original factory Aspen White is a timelessly attractive color.
And with the roof, fender flares, trim, grille, and antenna in
black, this looks like a fully coordinated two-tone that's as
attractive as formalwear. And what's important to understand about
this car is that it's the final evolution of the new Mini's first
generation. It's a great story to tell about how BMW re-engineered
the legendary Mini style, and so it will make for a terrific
classic. So you're going to spot the best in modern features while
still getting the iconic silhouette.
The black leather interior is both premium and stylish. So while
you have hatchback versatility, this has the substantial feel of
much more than an economy car. That's the difference the BMW
lineage makes! You slip behind a grippy three-spoke factory wheel
on a tilt column, and ahead of you is a large tach in this
driver-focused machine. In the center is the large speedometer
reminiscent of the original Austin Mini. Below that, you'll notice
the power windows and other modern luxuries are on cool toggle
switches. There are also provisions for air conditioning and power
locks (they will need servicing to fully function again.) Another
benefit of the first-gen car is that it's quite easy to upgrade the
stereo, and so you now have an AM/FM/CD unit with Bluetooth. You
even get the safety convenience of front airbags, side airbags, and
ABS. This is truly a thoughtful mix of retro touches with modern
The 1.6-liter motor is a great powerplant to have. It's a lively
fuel-injected multi-valve overhead camshaft unit. That means you
have a modern motor with a peppy attitude, and the five-speed
manual transmission puts you in control of it all. Also, what makes
these Minis so much fun is the suspension. Mini's BMW parents made
sure it was given a fully independent setup that lived up to the
sporting heritage that made original Mini Cooper giant killers on
the racetrack and rally circuit. That's the key to a car like this.
It's a secret sports car that's ready to charge forward at a
moment's notice. But the four-wheel disc brakes, power steering,
and cruise control also make it everyday friendly.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a road-carving coupe in a
terrific color combo. No matter if you're looking for an affordable
future classic or something cool to keep the miles off of your
vintage ride, this irresistible price means you need to hurry up
and grab this deal. Call today!!!
