MINI London 2012 Edition Hits The Starting Blocks
MINI cheers on Team GB and ParalympicsGB hopefuls with its new London 2010 inspired special edition



MINI, official partner of Team GB and ParalympicsGB, has unveiled its new London 2012 special, limited edition models to celebrate the monumental London 2012 Olympic Games.

There will be just 2,012 of these special edition models built, which are available in Cooper, Cooper D, Cooper S and Cooper SD trims and come in the Union Jack themed colours; Chilli Red, White Silver or Lightning Blue. All models boast white mirror caps and a white roof featuring the iconic London 2012 Olympic graphic.

The exterior also features a distinctive Union Jack single sport stripe which runs over the bonnet, roof and rear tailgate of the car. The side scuttles also bear the London 2012 Olympic graphic. To finish off the dynamic look, the MINI London 2012 edition features unique grey 17-inch conical spoke alloy wheels – unavailable on any other MINI model.

Inside, the most striking feature is the London skyline, beautifully etched across the width of the piano-black dashboard. Silhouetting some of London’s most iconic landmarks, including Tower Bridge, Battersea Power Station and the London Eye, the dashboard also displays the words “London 1 of 2012”.

The London 2012 inspiration continues with red and blue stitching twined with white piping on both the front and rear Black ‘Lounge Leather’ upholstery. The headrests complement the theme with Union Jack piping and a London 2012 logo is stitched on the inner edge of both front seats. Coloured stitching also features on the hand brake, gear stick gaiter and floor mats which also have piping.

All London 2012 special edition models come packed with a bundle of extra options like Lounge Leather sports seats, DAB radio, air conditioning, cruise control and chrome interior touches. MINIMALISM technology* also comes as standard; helping to make the 99g/km CO2 emitting Cooper D models exempt from London Congestion Charging.

As well as fuel sipping mpg figures and low CO2 emissions – MINI is one of the top five low CO2 car manufacturers** - drivers can enjoy the brand’s trademark go-kart handling and charismatic personality in a truly patriotic driving experience.

To bag one of these must-have street accessories of 2012, the new MINI London 2012 Edition pre-sale list opens at today, with the new models hitting UK roads from March 2012. On the Road Prices for the MINI London 2012 Editions models are:

MINI Cooper Hatch £17,800
MINI Cooper D Hatch £19,080
MINI Cooper S Hatch £20,125
MINI Cooper SD Hatch £20,860

I'm not too keen on the trim around the headrest, or the 2012 logo on the seat and roof Red Face

Offset stripes are all the rage in the U.S.A where they go over driver's side.

I love these, especially today as I've been told I have been accepted as a London Ambassador in the Flying Squad team.

Good effort, but with my hatred of the 2012 logo I'm not so keen seeing it everywhere. But that Dash is stunning!

Er - hadn't someone better tell MINI though that a London 2010 Special edition is a bit wrong?

It could be because the facelifted MINI's now have the same bonnet as the Cooper D previously had, which bulges in the middle, so sort of gives a more rounded effect Smile

Well done Caz! Very Happy

Which I think is the same as the S bonnet but without the scoop hole in the exterior (the interior one is there).

Well done indeed Caz
