Famous Five Cooper S

Words & photos - Daniel Bevis

OK, you've seen a million Minis that have been made into Italian Job replicas, right? But this one belongs to Chris Evans, so there's a fair chance that he's thrown a bit of money at it...
The car is part of his Famous Five collection, sitting alongside the Goldeneye DB5, an E-Type, a Miura and a Daytona; he auctions off opportunities to drive them to raise money for Children in Need. The Mini is a 1965 Cooper S, faithfully recreating the getaway Minis in the iconic movie with its triple spotlights, bonnet straps, cheeky little Minilites, and bootful of gold bullion (possibly). So, a few snaps here for you to enjoy.
