MINI launches London 2012 special edition models

October 24th, 2011 · No Comments

MINI UK recently unveiled the special London 2012 edition models which will go on a limited run in celebration of the Olympics Games which will be held in the city next year.

Only 2,012 units of this MINI limited edition will be built and can be purchased as the MINI Cooper (£ 17,800), Cooper D (£ 19,080), Cooper SD (£20,860), and Cooper S(£ 20,125) variants. The cars will be following the colors of the Union Jack so will roll out in Lightning Blue, Silver, White, and Chilli Red. All versions and colors will have their mirror caps and roof in white featuring the graphics for the London 2012 Olympics.

The exterior of the MINIs will also have the sport stripes running over its roof, bonnet, and tailgate. The sides will also display the London 2012 Olympic Games graphic. The look of the London 2012 MINI models is completed by the 17 inch alloy rims with conical spokes which is not available to other models of the brand.

Among the most striking features of the car is the London skyline etched skilfully across the black dashboard of the MINI which silhouettes famous landmarks like the Tower Bridge, London Eye, and the Battersea Power Station. The special edition MINI will also have the tag London 1 of 2012 on its dashboard.

The stitching of the upholstery also reflects the colors of the London Olympics 2012 using blue, red, and white threads. The headrests has a logo of the 2012 Olympic games plus its consistency of the stitching with the Union Jack theme.

You can sign up for the presale list of the London 2012 special MINIs which opened earlier this month. The 2012 London Olympic inspired MINI Cooper models will hit the UK roads by March next year.
