The MINI brand is celebrating its 60th anniversary, and to commemorate this occasion, MINI Malaysia is introducing the exclusive MINI 60 Years Edition. “For over 60 years, MINI has captured the hearts of millions worldwide for its timeless motor racing spirit. With the MINI 60 Years Edition in the brighter and more eye-catching ‘New British Racing Green’ exterior paint finish, this exclusive model pays tribute to MINI’s British racing pedigree and paves the way for a new era. Captivating from every angle, the MINI 60 Years Edition radiates style and attitude – with a nod to the past, while looking towards an exciting future,” said Harald Hoelzl, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia.
There will only be 60 units of the MINI 60 Years Edition available in Malaysia to maintain its exclusivity. Priced at RM255,888 (on the road for personal registration, without insurance), the MINI 60 Years Edition is a one-of-a-kind collector’s model that is packed full of exclusive features, design and innovation.
This collectible MINI is based on the Cooper S 3-door variant dressed in new British Racing Green with Pepper White roof and mirror caps. Alternatively, the exclusive model will also be available in Melting Silver with Jet Black roof and mirror caps. Capping off the exclusivity are signature black bonnet stripes with Aspen White and British Oak pinstripes.
In conjunction with the 60 Years Chili equipment package, the MINI 60 Years Edition features LED headlights, LED fog lamps, white turn indicators and LED rear lights with the Union Jack motif. It also comes with exclusive side scuttle badging, which bears the anniversary model’s distinctive 60 years insignia, and logo projection from the side mirror. The rear spoiler also accentuates the characteristics of the MINI 60 Years Edition, which the exclusive 17″ light alloy wheels in the 60 Years Spoke 2-tone style gives it a distinct look.
In the cockpit, you will find an elegant hand stitched MINI Yours Walknappa Leather sport steering wheel with the 60 Years insignia on the lower spoke. The insignia also adorns the front door entry strips. The Dark Maroon leather upholstery is complemented by bold stitching, paying tribute to MINI’s heritage in craftsmanship. A new high resolution 6.5″ touchscreen display with navigation in the MINI Centre Instrument now houses state-of-the-art technology at the driver’s fingertips.
The MINI 60 Years Edition also features the interior lighting package, on-board computer, automatic climate control, rain sensor and storage compartment package on board. Additionally, the MINI Excitement Package allows the driver creative control of the vehicle’s ambient lighting of up to 12 colour choices.
Standard interior equipment for the MINI 60 Years Edition include a rear-view camera, interior rear view mirror with auto anti-dazzle function, velour floor mats, sports seats for both the driver and front passenger along with height adjustment for the latter, as well as ISOFIX points.
The MINI Connected feature offers extensive connectivity capabilities and personalised services, including Intelligent Emergency Call, Teleservices, MINI Online and Remote Services. Also featured in the MINI 60 Years Edition is Apple CarPlay for easy connectivity of Apple smart devices.
