SOLD: $25,000
Shannons, Sydney

The Mini Cooper S is considered the grandad of today’s hot hatches. The Cooper S was a star on the track and  the screen, filling the top nine places at the 1966 Bathurst 500 and starring in the first The Italian Job movie. Prices for genuine versions are skyrocketing, spawning a strong replica market, delivering the same performance and thrills without the huge pricetag. This superb example sold for $25,000.
