Mini limited edition celebrates 60 years

Special 60 Years Edition model brings unique styling to Cooper S and is limited to just 500 units

Would you like to stay up to date with the latest from The Car Expert?

Mini is celebrating 60 years since the introduction of the original and iconic Mini hatch with an appropriately-titled limited-edition model – the 60 Years Edition.

Based on the Mini Cooper S three-door hatch, the 60 Years Edition benefits from a unique look. It’s finished in British Racing Green with a contrasting black roof, carrying over the bonnet stripes and mirror caps.

The stripes also feature a ‘60’ graphic, which is complemented by unique badging on the car’s side scuttles. Standard-fit spotlights fixed to the front grille plus model-specific 17-inch alloy wheels complete the exterior look.

Inside, the 60 Years Edition features emblems on the steering wheel and front seats, with the latter also upholstered in Mini Yours ‘Dark Cacao’ leather. Contrasting stitching and piping match the exterior look as well.

Standard equipment includes LED front and rear automatic lights, a rear-view camera, power folding mirrors plus a nine-inch infotainment system that supports Bluetooth connectivity in addition to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

   

Thanks to its Cooper S underpinnings, the Mini 60 Years Edition features a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, sending 190hp and 300Nm of torque to the front wheels via a seven-speed automatic gearbox.

As a result, 0-60mph is covered in 6.5 seconds with a 143mph top speed achievable. Mini claims the car can return 39.8mpg on the combined cycle while emitting 129g/km of CO2.

Just 500 examples of the Mini 60 Years Edition are destined for the UK and will retail from £29,990 when it reaches dealers from March.

The original Mini was launched in 1959 and went on to become one of the most iconic cars produced – in 1999 it was even voted the second-most influential car of the 20th century by a jury of professionals appointed by the Global Automotive Elections Foundation.

The Mini Cooper S is built in Britain.
