eBay watch: Limited edition Paul Smith-designed Mini

Ps_mini

I'll be honest, this is probably the most modern eBay find we've ever done. But it is a classic / original Mini and not just any older Mini – it's a limited edition Paul Smith-designed Mini.

Yes, Mary Quant wasn't the only fashion designer to get her hands on the Mini, Paul Smith did so too in 1999, with 300 of his themed Minis offered for sale. How many are left? That's anyone's guess – but almost certainly less.

For your money, you get a standard (for the time) 1275cc Mini, but packed with extras, including a 24ct gold badge on the bonnet, a British Isles badge on the grill, citrus green 'hidden parts', a denim jack bag, body coloured dashboard, black leather seats and plenty of Paul Smith branding. Condition seems fine, with the odd mark here and there, but at £1,500, it seems a reasonable price.
