This is not just a Mini. This is an M&S Mini.
A unique Morris Mini credited with 'saving' Marks and Spencer when it appeared alongside alongside model Twiggy in a TV advert has emerged for sale.
It is being sold alongside two exact replicas of it which where commissioned by Corgi and Scalextric to celebrate the mini's 50th anniversary in 2009.
Built in 1959, the Mini wasn't registered until 1960 and it spent much of its life was spent as a normal run-around.
Then in 2006 it was bought by Elstree Studios on behalf of M&S, who sent to De Gournay of London to be painted in one of their famous styles.
