The MINI brand has always stood for an original that constantly reinvents itself – it is firmly rooted in tradition, yet always open to change. Even after 60 years, MINI continues to be renowned for bringing worldwide popularity to unique properties such as the go-kart feeling and the creative use of space. In addition, fans of MINI identify strongly with the brand tenets of striking design and individuality. Thus capture the essence of MINI, and pay homage to these values of the brand.

According to Kidd Yam, Head of MINI Asia, “Six decades after the launch of a compact British car that rewrote the rules of motoring, we are thrilled to begin the celebrations of MINI 60 Years in Brunei with the launch of this exclusive design model. The MINI 60 Years Edition pays homage to the brand's sporting spirit with its high-quality design and equipment features, and our specially curated Lifestyle Collection creates the perfect blend of the classic and the modern. This launch is a fitting start to commemorate the genesis of MINI, and we look forward to celebrating this special year with our friends and fans of the brand.”

Exterior Design
The MINI 60 Years Edition is immediately recognizable with a paint finish in the classic colour of British racing cars. In particular, the new British Racing Green paintwork offers an exceptionally clear expression of the premium small car’s character and origins. Alternative body finishes include Melting Silver, Midnight Black, and the MINI Yours Lapisluxury Blue.

The chosen body colour is combined with a paint finish in Pepper White or Black for the roof and exterior mirror caps. Other exterior highlights include LED headlights, LED fog lamps, white turn indicators, and LED rear lights in the Union Jack design. The special 60 Years logo appears on the left-hand bonnet stripe, as well as on the side scuttles of the turn indicators. Exclusive 17-inch 60 Years Spoke light alloy wheels in the Dark Spectre Grey with Burnished Spokes design then round off the distinct look of the edition vehicles.

Interior Design
A signature element of the MINI 60 Years Edition is the special LED projection – upon opening or closing of the driver’s door, the 60 Years logo appears in the LED light projection. This logo can be projected for 20 seconds. Inside the car, the anniversary logo can be found on the seats, steering wheel, and the door sill finishers at the driver and front passenger doors. On the front passenger’s side, there is an exclusive interior surface finisher with the 60 Years logo in printed film with pinstripes in British Racing Green and Dark Silver. The standard equipment of the edition vehicles includes a sports leather steering wheel along with sports seats in the MINI Yours Leather Lounge 60 Years in the exclusive Dark Maroon colour.
