MkIII Mini Cooper S

SUMMARY
The last of the production Cooper S', and it wasn't given much of a send off as BMC phased out the Cooper brand in favour of the 1275 GT. As such the MkIII Cooper S received little in the way of 'extras' and was only ever offered in a single colours, rather than the duo-tone with contrasting roof colour the Coopers had become known for.
