Jonathon's Comments:

'This is the best Mini Cooper S  we have seen at the Car Barn, the previous owner went to great lengths to make sure this car had the best of everything, including spending many hours making sure the original registration number was Re-Assigned by the DVLA. To drive the Cooper S is great fun, you can see why it won so many rallies! This a great example of a great car.' 

All cars sold at the Car Barn come with a 6 month warranty provided in house.
