Mini kit (#12252) ? Is it right or left hand drive? Hard to tell from box art.

I can't say for the standard Mini that you show; but the Stella Bridger version from the Italian Job is a full-blown JCW Mini Cooper S w/LHD and all the various JCW appearance options, bodywork (fascias and skirts) plus the glass roof and BBS wheels (though they're a bit wide and I prefer Revell's that are in their WRX diecast model). It's a really neat model, and I suspect it's the only LHD JCW from Fujimi. The boxart of the one you are looking at seems to show the wipers in a position that's seen on RHD cars. It wouldn't be that hard to convert a Mini from RHD to LHD as the instruments are in the center and the tach is on the steering column.
