<br />
This is not just a Mini. This is an M&S Mini.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
Built in 1959, the Mini wasn't registered until 1960 and it spent much of its life was spent as a normal run-around.<br />
<br />
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.
