Mini Cooper 60-year special edition revealed
Mini isn’t shy to announce special edition models when there’s something to celebrate.
This year, the British car maker is celebrating 60 years since the Mini first launched.
In doing so, four engine variants in both three and five door specification will be available from March onwards to express the brand’s “sporting spirit”.
To tell it apart, the special edition models will be splashed in British Racing Green IV (with the option of black, grey, silver or blue available as an alternative) combined with a white or black painted roof and mirror caps and bonnet stripes in anniversary design.
Riding on 17-inch two-tone alloy wheels, the special edition also gets LED headlights, fog lights and taillights, Mini Driving modes and Mini’s Excitement package with ambient interior lighting.
As for engine options, Mini will offer customers two petrol and two diesel donks ranging from the Cooper’s three-cylinder turbo (100kW) and the Cooper S’s petrol turbo-four (141kW) options.
While prices haven’t been confirmed, a spokesperson from Mini Australia says we can expect to see the special edition model here, but how many will be allocated to Oz is not yet known.
