Full Description

UK Classic Minis often suffered rust and so in 2004 New Acre Cars started sourcing Classic Minis from Japan, since then we have been copied by other companies but as our main business is commercially importing and supplying people carriers and camper vans to the trade and retail in the UK Ireland and other countries we have an extensive network of contacts who we rely on to source these classic minis at competitive prices. We are complete Mini Enthusiasts and often found in the rare limited edition areas of classic mini shows with our own cars. (Black ERA Turbo and RSP Cooper both imported from Japan by us in 2004)

This Mini would make a fantastic investment We have priced competitively against UK models that will have suffered from the rust and often extensive repairs and probably cheaper than most .. we can supply vehicles as landed as light refurbishment projects, or fully retail prepared.

All of our Minis are hand selected in Japan by us personally, prices include Shipping, Duties, Taxes, Registration, UK number plates, Service, MOT and Waxoyl.

We can organise delivery if required at competitive prices and can organise transport to the docks if being re exported. Transportation to Ireland is also available.

So what is a Paul Smith Mini

The Paul Smith Register have it spot on

Originally designed as part of the Great Brits minis (along with David Bowie’s chromed mini, Natasha Caine’s bullion mini, Kate Moss’s Spider Web mini and the ‘Design a mini’ competition winner Mark ward’s clock cogs mini), the 84 striped, 24 colour car (I believe 2 were made) appeared at the 1997 Tokyo Motor Show, and inspired a run of limited edition minis. 300 UK cars were made, with a total of 1800 worldwide. The Paul Smith mini is one of the best equipped limited edition minis, and in the UK, was only available in Paul Smith Blue. This colour is reputed to be the colour of the shirt that Paul Smith was wearing at the meeting with the rover designers, and when asked what colour he wanted the car, he tore a section off his shirt!! (How true this story is is unknown, but is one we have heard for years in the mini community, and we like it!!) The Japanese spec cars were also available in Old English White, and Anthracite Black, together with air conditioning. The Paul Smith Mini was designed to mimic a Paul Smith Suit. It had a conservative appearance, but had a bright twist! Several parts were given the ‘Paul Smith’ treatment and were coloured in bright Citrus Green. These parts were the rocker cover, HT leads, inside the glove box, the petrol tank and the boot board.

The Paul Smith Mini was available from May 1998 most are registered as S Reg or occasional T Reg they were one of the most luxurious production minis ever made,

As you would expect Paul Smith made a large number of subtle but luxurious enhancements.
