I'd hazard a guess that somebody re-shelled their Mk3 'S' and left this kicking about .. probably little to no chance of getting a legitimate ID as it will already be in use ..
. The original car was indeed reshelled, and I also heard this may well have been the very last Cooper S off the line! :shock: ??
Wow...….so this is possibly the very last official Cooper S ( discarded ) shell...….. :shock:
I'd be interested to know what car currently wears the registration that was originally on this shell...…..

We'll just put this particular rumour to bed shall we. That is not the shell of the last Mk 3 S, it is too early for that.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.
