- mini is launching three special edition models for 2023 with bold graphics and shiny metallic trims.
- the resolute, untamed, and untold editions are available for the cooper, countryman, and clubman models, respectively.
- the cheeky small-car brand is celebrating its 20th anniversary of u.s. sales this march.
to celebrate its 20th anniversary of selling small cars in north america, mini is readying three special-edition models that will be available for nearly its entire lineup. while 20th anniversary gifts are traditionally made of china, mini has taken a new route and applied brass and frosted bronze accents to differentiate these special models.
the cooper hardtop and its convertible variant can be ordered as the resolute edition, which comes painted in rebel green with pepper white paint for the mirror caps and roof; the convertible comes with a black cloth top. the package is also available on the electric cooper s e hatchback, but that car eschews the gasoline-powered model's 18-inch black wheels for a set of aerodynamic-focused 17-inchers. hood stripes, pin-striped door-sill protectors, and yellow-and-cream tweed upholstery complete the package.
countryman models can be had with the new untamed edition package, which applies a momentum grey exterior color that serves to highlight a bodyside graphic. inside, a backlit panel displaying a mountain scene stretches across the dashboard and highland green leather upholstery graces the seats.
perhaps the most attractive of the bunch is the untold edition cooper clubman, which wears sage green paint with color-matched plastic body cladding, brass-accented 18-inch wheels, and a striped hood graphic. the clubman's interior is decorated with sage green leather upholstery as well as brass-accented door sill protectors and dashboard vents.
mini says that 60 percent of its sales are custom-built cars and hopes that these three special-edition packages will give customers even more choices. production of these updated minis starts in march and the company says inventory should be available at dealers in april 2022.
pricing for the resolute edition mini cooper start at $36,750 for the hardtop and $41,250 for the convertible. the untold edition clubman starts at $42,500 and the untamed edition clubman starts at $42,750.
