I know it's the same as the one in the steeringwheel archive named Cosmic BUT
In the flyer of Cosmic they only talk about leather rimmed ones, all the spokes are flat and have 4 holes.
Also the spokes are offset to the boss.

This wheel has curved spokes that are very wide and only have 3 holes and they are centered on the boss.

So i don't think it's Cosmic at all, so who knows?

Correct the cosmic has flat spokes.
Clifford did the dished spoke variety. They were a major player in oe wheels for many uk popular brands but also did some marketing in the aftermarket. Their biggest after market lines being plastic rims looking like wood, for several Italian brands and also the Rover P6 optional 'wood-rim' wheel.

;) Yes it's an Clifford. This seller is trying for a long time to sell this wheel with no luck.
The two spokes are made of stainles steel what makes the wheel a bit heavy.
Finding an boss for your Mini will be an challenge, I have never seen one for sale.

:P Kees.

At first glance I thought it was a Volvo P1800, but those have 4 holes on each spoke. So maybe Clifford were the OE supplier for Jensen built Volvos and just altered the design slightly for the aftermarket.

This looks a bit like the one in the Mini Marcos accessories catalog. If it is I would be very interested. Where is it offered for sale?
