When it comes to special edition automobile, MINI is second to none and just when you thought the German automaker-owned, British marque has run out of ideas for special edition, it dishes out yet another and this time, it pays tribute the original Austin Seven of 50s and 60s. Aptly dubbed MINI Seven, it is every inch of the MINI you know today and as with the special editions before it, the only special would be cosmetic, which extends from the outside to the cabin. The former includes an unique paint scheme, Lapisluxury Blue, you see here, along with Pepper White, Midnight Black, and not forgetting, British Racing Green as alternatives.
Exterior visual appearance is further bolstered by Melting Silver roof and side mirror caps, 17-inch light alloy wheels in exclusive MINI Seven Spoke two-tone design, MINI Seven door sill finishers, side scuttles with MINI Seven logo, hood stripes. The MINI Seven stands out with an abundance of options, where you are given the choice of sprucing up the interior with Diamond Malt Brown fabric and leather hybrid upholstery with dash trim in Piano Black. There are full leather trim options too, in case, you know, you have an uncontrollable repulsion for fabric and the dash is also available in Color Line Malt Brown with MINI Seven logo, located on the central instrument surround.
Though the original Seven was never a performance compact hatch, the modern take of the Seven is offered in Cooper and Cooper S models, nonetheless. So, I guess it is one step up its forebear in both performance and luxury. There is a bunch of model exclusive optional equipment package to elevate your MINI Seven experience, but only if you find yourself having spare cash to drop. You should be expecting the same equipment level of the Cooper and Cooper S as standards, but like I said, it has more options than you can shake a stick at.
More details, including pricing, should be available close to its Summer availability. In the meantime, you can have a look what a MINI Seven will look like by scrutinizing the official images from BMW peppered around this post.
