It just occurred to me that I haven't posted this ad here, after throwing it all over various Facebook groups.

I’m selling my R53 Cooper S. I’ve owned it for 3 years, during which time I’ve spent around £12k on modification and maintenance to turn it into a quick, reliable track car.

The car has been maintained and modified by two of the best independent R53 mechanics in the UK, who can verify condition/work completed. It has been maintained regardless of cost, with plenty of preventative maintenance, and has had all of the common R53 issues rectified. It comes ready to drive, with no work needed. It will also come with a fresh MOT.

I’m based in SW London (near Wimbledon). I’m happy to offer test-drives if you can prove you have third-party insurance. If not, I’m happy to do passenger rides.
I’m open to negotiation on price, but only on the condition that you’ve seen and driven the car first.
