MINI LAUNCHES SPE­CIAL EDI­TION COOPER THAT TAKES IN­SPI­RA­TION FROM AUSTIN SEVEN

Virtuozity - - Auto News -

Mini has an­nounced the new Mini Seven, a spe­cial edi­tion of its three-door and five­door Cooper and Cooper S mod­els. The idea be­hind the new car is to com­mem­o­rate the brand’s his­tory with styling cues that hark back to when the orig­i­nal car started pro­duc­tion in 1959, when it was known as the Austin Seven. The new model comes with the stan­dard en­gine vari­ants, with power rang­ing from 116 hp to 192 hp for the hot Cooper S model. How- ever, there are styling touches that won’t be fea­tured on your stan­dard Minis.

On the out­side, there’s a paint fin­ish called Lapis­lux­ury Blue, roof and ex­te­rior mir­ror caps in Melt­ing Sil­ver, and 17-inch al­loy wheels in a spe­cial two-tone de­sign. There are also Mini Seven door sill fin­ish­ers, side scut­tles with a Mini Seven logo, and bon­net stripes in Melt­ing Sil­ver. As an op­tion, you can also get sur­rounds on the stripes in Malt Brown.

On the in­side, there are seats in fab­ric or leather, in­te­rior sur­faces in Pi­ano Black, an op­tional Malt Brown colour line, and the Mini Seven logo on the cen­tral in­stru­ment sur­round. There are ob­vi­ously plenty of op­tional ex­tras to choose from, in­clud­ing LED head­lights and fog lamps, white di­rec­tion in­di­ca­tors, au­to­matic air con­di­tion­ing, and an on-board com­puter.

Mini will also of­fer op­tional driv­ing pack­ages on the Seven, in­clud­ing Mini Driv­ing Modes and the Mini Ex­cite­ment Pack­age.
