Mini has unveiled a limited-run variant of the Cooper S three-door hatchback, in celebration of 2019 marking 60 years since the launch of the original BMC Mini.

Visual elements unique to the special-edition Mini include a new British Racing Green paint colour, contrasting black roof and wing mirrors, specially designed bonnet stripes and two-tone 17in lightweight alloy wheels.

A commemorative badge features on the bonnet, indicator housings and as an LED projection from the bottom of the driver’s door. UK examples will receive a set of front-mounted, rally-style spotlights. 

The interior continues the anniversary theme, with seats upholstered in model-specific dark leather with contrast stitching and the 60 Years emblem displayed on the steering wheel and front seats.

The Mini 60 Years Edition retains the 2.0-litre petrol engine and seven-speed automatic gearbox from the Cooper S to accelerate from 0-62mph in 6.7sec and on to a top speed of 145mph.
