The Countryman Sport is built exclusively by M-tech of Somerset England, Mini Specialists.
It is the result of many hours of skill and expertise to create a beautiful Mini Countryman for your enjoyment.
The concept is based around bringing the classic Mini 'Woody' up to date with winding windows, supportive leather seats, decent brakes and a larger engine for modern performance.
The M-tech Countryman Sport is built with almost all new or reconditioned parts in order
to achieve reliability and longevity for the long term enjoyment of its owners.
The M-tech Countryman Sport may also be seen as a rare and potential investment which is still available effectively 'new' despite the Mini Classic no longer being available from the factory.

Rear Arches on Sportspack Option
Due to the increased width of the Sports wheels fitted, enlarged rear wheelarches are fabricated by hand.
In order to ensure the aesthetics of the vehicle are not spoilt, this is carried out by keeping the outer ‘sight line’ to the same width as the original, a taper is then introduced towards the body of the vehicle to a similar style as the front plastic arches. A taper front to rear is also introduced to follow the line of the wheel.
