Only 20 units of the new Mini Convertible available as part of 60th Birthday Celebrations
The new Mini Convertible is here. Limited to just 20 units as part of the brand’s 60th birthday celebrations, the Mini Convertible comes with new high-tech features and digital services including built-in 4G SIM technology for the new generation Mini Connected services.
There’s a newly developed 2.0-litre twin-scroll turbo engine and seven-speed Steptronic Sports automatic transmission combination that produces 192bhp and 280Nm of torque. Acceleration to 100km/h takes 7.1 seconds, top speed is 230km/h.
The electronic gear selector lever is newly designed. It returns to its original position after changing between driving mode ‘D’, neutral position ‘N’ and reverse mode ‘R’. The parking lock is activated by pressing the ‘P’ button.
Safety-wise, the Mini Convertible has an active rollover protection system, which ensures driver and passengers are given additional head protection should the vehicle ever overturn. The car also comes with front airbags and pelvis-thorax airbag for the driver and front passenger. Additional safety features include Rear Park Distance Control, Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC).
The electric soft-top convertible which can be operated at speeds of up to 30km/h features the Union Jack from the MINI Yours design portfolio woven into the fabric of the roof. It takes 18 seconds to open in three stages – closed, sunroof – to let the breeze in, and open.
The headlights, Union Jack tail lamps and indicators are LED. The Mini Convertible is shod with 17-inch Rail Spoke design in burnish Jet Black with runflat tyres.
