Mini Goes All Dark Knight with Limited Edition Countryman and Paceman

You could always cover your car in a matte black foil wrap if that’s your thing, but in case you prefer something of a more permanent nature, Mini has is extending its program of exterior paint finishes for the five-door Countryman and its three-door sibling, the Paceman, with the addition of a Frozen Black metallic paint option.

The limited edition color that, in Mini’s own words, features “a textured, shimmering matt finish”, is available on the gasoline-powered Cooper S and John Cooper Works models, and the diesel-fueled Cooper SD versions of the two cars.

Certain exterior parts, including the model-specific front and rear aprons and the exterior mirror caps are finished separately in the paint finish Frozen Black metallic.

If you happen to opt for this color, which will be limited to a restricted number of cars worldwide, Mini says you have to be careful not to wax the body.

“The finish is completely weather resistant and car wash resistant; however, hand washing does require special care as spot cleaning of the surface using wax or polish can leave an unwanted gloss effect,” says the company.
