    Hello all. Just got my mini and I'm looking for others who have an interest and who enjoy these super little cars. 2004 40th anniversary Monte Carlo edition. Number 640/1000. Still have temp plates on it but love driving it. What a blast.

    The MINI Cooper S MC40 - A Salute to History

    Competitors could not miss the distinctive red and white colors and tidy dimensions of the Mini that wrote history in 1964. Taking cues from the winning car, the same colors adorn the MINI Cooper S MC40. Special commemorative markings on the car include the famous "33-EJB" on the bonnet and a special 40th anniversary rally graphic on both the bonnet and rear quarters. The car proudly wears special magnetic door plaques with the unmistakable white and black "number 37". The plaques stay securely in place at speed, but can be easily removed if needed.

    The MINI Cooper S MC40 comes with a set of distinctive 17-inch, multi-spoke alloy wheels. The two-piece wheels are finished in anthracite gray and feature a polished aluminum lip. Other special equipment includes rally-style driving lights with chrome bezels, a chrome grille, mirror caps and rear boot handle. A tasteful 'GB' insignia adorns the rear boot lid, paying tribute to the car's place-of-origin in Oxford, England.

    The standard equipment list also includes a sport package with Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), front and rear fog lights, on-board computer and Xenon headlamps with power wash - features a rally driver could have only dreamed of in 1964.

    In the cabin, the dash panel is clad in genuine, lightweight carbon fiber and the seats wear striking red and black leather upholstery unique to this model. A special gauge package is mounted in the center console and indicates voltage and oil temperature. The shift knob features a 40th Anniversary Monte Carlo insignia and has a satin aluminum finish. The interior also features a thick leather wrapped, three-spoke sport wheel and all-weather rubber floor mats to protect the carpets from would-be rally drivers' shoes.

    To round out the unique features included in the MINI Cooper S MC40, there is a special numbered commemorative plate in the center console indicating the exclusivity of each car.

    Wow, there is one of those that lives someplace near me. I see it going past the intersection near town, couple of times a month, but do not know where it lives. I thought they had just done the markings themselves. Next time I'll turn right and follow it.
