The 10 Millionth MINI Is An Ode To The Brand

Back in 1959, production of the classic Mini began in the United Kingdom. 60 years later, the company, which moved under the BMW Group’s protective wing in 1994, celebrated an important milestone: the 10 millionth car produced.

Dressed in the Cooper S 60 Years Edition guise, the vehicle rolled off the assembly line in Oxford last month and is now being displayed at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, alongside other premieres.

Like all Cooper S 60 Years Edition cars, the 10 millionth Mini boasts a British Racing Green IV paint scheme and gets bonnet stripes, black roof and side mirror caps and piano black trim. It also displays its production number on the doors and rear bumper and gets additional spot lights at the front, ’60 Years’ emblems and 17-inch alloy wheels with an exclusive design.

Brown leather with white contrast stitching and green piping is found on the seats, whereas the ’60 Years’ emblem can further be seen on the sill plates, steering wheel and backrests. The 8.8-inch infotainment system, wireless charging pad, Comfort Plus Pack, ambient lighting, Park Distance Control, folding side mirrors, LED lights at both ends, automatic headlamps and windscreen wipers and others won’t cost you anything on top of the base price of the car, which is £29,990 ($37,025/€33,527) in the UK.

All 500 units allocated for Great Britain, as well as the ones aimed at other markets, pack the 2.0-liter, turbocharged engine of the regular Cooper S, with 192 PS (189 hp / 141 kW).

    That’s not a 60 Years edition. It’s dressed like one but that’s a 2020 Cooper S. The 2019 60 Years is a 2019 model and is colored in British Racing or several other colors but if it’s BRG it has a Pepper White Roof and mirror caps. Not black. This is just the 10 Millionth MINI and they decked it out to look like a 60 Years Edition so the author is wrong in saying “All 60 Years Editions”.
