Thre steering wheel of the rare Radford Mini De Ville.
The Rolls Royce... of Mini.
An incredibly rare 50-year-old Mini car that was the most luxurious ever made has gone on the market with a whopping 50,000 pounds price tag.
The pint-sized motor was fitted out with so many deluxe features when it was made in 1964 that it has been described as a Rolls Royce in a Mini's body.
It boasts a host of innovations and indulgences more common in lavish cars like Rolls Royces and Aston Martins.
These include electric windows, wooden trim, leather seats, full length sun-roof and deep-pile carpets made from lamb's wool.
This particular Mini was lovingly restored in the 1990s for Beatles guitarist George Harrison but he passed away from cancer before the work was completed.
It is tipped to fetch 50,000 pounds when it goes under the hammer at London auction house Christie's on September 3.
