For Sale: 2006 MINI Cooper in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

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 affordable.


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 luxury.


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!!!
