Since its birth in 1959, the classic Mini has become an iconic car to members of high society: the royalty, film stars, musicians and celebrities from the rest of the world were enticed to the charm of the pint-sized British car.
As MINI celebrates its 60th year, the brand has launched an exclusive design model that emphasizes the authentic background and agile character of the original model in the small car segment.
With a paint finish in the classic color of British racing cars, the MINI 60 Years Edition, in particular, evokes the brand’s sporty career. The exterior paint finish in British Racing Green offers a particularly clear expression of the premium small car’s character and origins.
The bonnet stripes with a specific anniversary design and exclusive 17-inch light-alloy wheels in the version 60 Years Spoke 2-tone round off the distinct look of the edition vehicles.
Inside the car, it can also be seen on the front headrests and the steering wheel. In addition, the exclusive design model has model-specific interior trim finishers.
The anniversary design can also be seen in the LED logo projection which is visible when the driver’s door is opened. The standard equipment of the edition vehicles includes a sports leather steering wheel along with sports seats in the leather finish MINI Yours Leather Lounge 60 Years and the exclusive color Dark Maroon.
Powering the 60th Anniversary Edition Cooper S is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 189 horsepower at 5000 to 6000 rpm, and 207 lb-ft of torque at 4600 rpm. The engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, making the special edition Mini faster to accelerate, and delivers quicker gear changes.
Autohub Group of Companies, the exclusive distributor of Mini vehicles in the country, announced that only 12 units of the three-door 60th Anniversary Edition will be available. It is also available in five-door models, which will be also sold with 12 units.
