Mini is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year with a limited run of 500 special edition models priced from £29,990.
Built in the UK at Mini Plant Oxford, the MINI 60 Years Edition will be the first of several plans the brand has this year to champion its heritage in the UK.
The MINI 3-door Hatch Cooper S 60 Years Edition will be offered exclusively with an automatic transmission in the UK, with acceleration from zero to 62 mph in 6.7 seconds.
The exterior design features a new British Racing Green IV paint finish and piano black exterior trim, black roof and exterior mirror caps, special anniversary design bonnet stripes and model exclusive 17-inch light alloy wheels in 60 Years Spoke 2-tone.
The 60 Years emblem completes the vehicle, placed on the left-hand bonnet stripe, side scuttles of the turn indicators and LED logo projection from the driver’s door.
Every model in the UK will be sold with an additional set of MINI spot lamps fitted to the front radiator grille.
Interior features include model specific finishes using the 60 Years emblem, including the steering wheel and front seats. The seats are finished with MINI Yours Leather Lounge in Dark Cacao with contrast seat stitching and piping matching the new exterior paintwork.
A Navigation Plus options pack is included, providing an 8.8-inch touch display with satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth connectivity, concierge service and wireless charging.
The car also comes with a Comfort Plus Pack that includes a rear view camera, folding exterior mirrors and front and rear Park Distance Control (PDC).
The limited edition run of models will go on sale in time for the March plate-change.
