This year marks 60 years since the British Motor Corporation unveiled its revolutionary Mini compact car, that went on to be considered arguably the most influential car of the 20th century after the Model T Ford.
To celebrate the brand’s diamond anniversary, Mini has introduced limited edition 60 Years Edition, featuring a range of interior and exterior enhancements that hark back to its origins and subsequent racing success.
The Mini 60 Years is painted in classic British Racing Green IV with four other colours, Midnight Black metallic, Moonwalk Grey metallic, Melting Silver metallic and Mini Yours Lapisluxury Blue, also available.
All colours can be contrasted by a choice of Pepper White or black roof and exterior mirror caps, with bonnet stripes, 60 Years logos and a bespoke 17-inch alloy wheel design completing the look.
The unique logo also shows up inside on the front headrests and steering wheel, and LED puddle light projection when the driver's door is opened.
Sports leather steering wheel and exclusive Dark Maroon leather finish seats are also standard.
All Mini 60 Years versions also feature LED headlights and fog lamps, ‘Union Jack’ LED tail-lights, while the Mini Excitement Package adds ambient lighting. There is also an onboard computer, automatic air conditioning, a rain sensor and a storage package as part of the deal.
The Mini 60 Years will be available in Europe from March, and Mini Australia is yet to reveal local availability, specifications and pricing.
