The limited-run MINI 60 Years Edition is packed full of exclusive features
The Mini badge has been alive and well for over 60 years. And to commemorate the iconic brand, MINI Malaysia has introduced the MINI 60 Years Edition. The only catch is that there will be only 60 units available, priced at RM 255,888.
What makes the MINI 60 Years Edition stand out?
Sticking to the theme, the limited-run MINI Cooper S 3-door is identifiable with bonnet stripes in British Racing Green with Pepper White roof and mirror caps. In addition, it’s available in Melting Silver with Jet Black roof and mirror caps.
Moreover, it comes with the signature black bonnet stripes with Aspen White and British Oak pinstripes. The wheels which it rides on are two-tone 17-inch alloy wheel with run-flat tyres. Likewise, the scuttle badging boasts the 60 Years insignia. Like on all current MINI models, the 60 Years Edition comes with LED headlamps and taillamps in the Union Jack design.
The MINI 60 Years interior features
There’s a sense of occasion too; the ’60 Years’ logo projects from the exterior wing mirrors, while the themed door sill welcomes the driver inside. The interior upholstery brings the retro feel into the modern era; the hand-stitched MINI Walknappa Leather steering is a contrast to the Dark Maroon seats with bold white and green stitches with green piping. The ’60 Years’ logo is also placed on the shoulders of the front seats and at the bottom of the steering wheel.
Besides its distinctive features, the MINI 60 Years Edition comes with the many items fitted in the current model line up. These include rain sensor, rear-view camera, 6.5-inch touchscreen, 12-colour ambient lighting, and ISOFIX anchor points just to name a few. Also featured in the MINI 60 Years Edition is the wireless Apple CarPlay.
What drives the MINI 60 Years Edition
Vehicle propulsion comes from a MINI TwinPower two-litre, turbocharged, four-cylinder petrol engine which makes 192 Hp and 280 Nm of torque. The two-litre mill sends power to a 7-Speed DCT transmission, which the seamless and quick gearshifts can take it from 0-100 within 6.7 seconds and topping out at 235 Km/h.
