The black Mini 30 special edition, which has been in storage for the past 25 years, will be offered for sale at Anglia Car Auctions on 4 April.

Just 3000 Mini 30s were made to celebrate the iconic model’s 30th birthday – 2000 in Cherry Red Pearlescent and 1000 in black.

Another Mini from the same owner has is similarly low-mileage, having covered just 137 miles, and carries an estimate of £10,000-£15,000.

Both are completely original, retaining their original alloy wheels and unique Mini 30 trim. Both cars still have their handbooks, brochures, and commemorative books by Rob Golding as originally provided by Austin Rover.

Lyn George, Anglia Car Auctions’ proprietor, said, ‘These cars are bound to attract Mini collectors from all over, especially being such low mileage Mini 30s in pristine condition.
