MINI Celebrates 60-Year Racing Heritage with Special Anniversary Edition

August 8th, 2019 by

What’s that old saying? “You’re not getting older. You’re getting better.” MINI enthusiasts know what a true story that is! As MINI celebrates its 60th anniversary, it’s only getting better and better.

 

MINI has rolled out a “60 Years Special Edition” to mark the occasion. The Cooper S Hardtop 2 Door harks back to its storied racing roots with a gorgeous British Racing Green IV paint job, complemented by optional bonnet stripes emblazoned with “60 Years.”  

 

 

It gets better… The 60 Years logo is prominently displayed on the doorsills, headrests, steering wheel and is projected on the ground when the door is opened. The leather lounge seats coming in rich dark maroon with contrast piping, and the 17-inch rims are a special two-tone to lend even more personality. 

 

But, of course, the real fun lies under the bonnet, where there’s a 189 horsepower engine with 207 lb-ft of torque. You may never race this 60 Years Special Edition Cooper S, but you’ll feel its racing heritage out on the road when you take it from zero to 60 miles per hour in a zippy 6.5 seconds.

 

Cars change over time, but MINI has never strayed far from its origins 60 years ago with the original MINI, planned by famed British designer John Cooper to conquer racing and rally courses with tight, go-cart handling and all-around nimbleness.

 

The 60 Years Special Edition is a tribute to that heritage.
