MINI Malaysia is offering the exclusive first design model of the MINI 5 Door, called the MINI Seven Edition. Created as a tribute to the original Austin Seven introduced in 1959, only 30 examples of the MINI Seven Edition will be made available in Malaysia.
Unique to the MINI Seven Edition is the MINI Yours colour Lapisluxury Blue with contrasting roof, mirror caps and bonnet stripes finished in Melting Silver. On each side there is a special “Seven” scuttle, and the Seven Edition rides on twin spoke 17-inch alloys finished in Spectre Grey.
More distinct Seven Edition touches can be found inside, where the front occupants get greeted with MINI Seven door sills. The seats are upholstered in fabric and leather combination with Diamond Malt Brown pattern, while the steering is wrapped in “Walknappa” leather with waxed aluminium braided thread stitching. There’s also a small union jack seal on the steering wheel, and a MINI Seven badging on the Centre Instrument Ring.
Standard equipment on the MINI Seven Edition include Comfort Access keyless entry, 8.8-inch high-res Navigation System Professional, MINI Controller with handwriting recognition, 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound system and a Snap In Adapter for mobile phone which also connects to the car’s antenna.
Under the bonnet, the Cooper S powertrain is left untouched. It’s a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder delivering 192 hp and 280 Nm of torque, paired to a six-speed automatic. We tested the 5 Door Cooper S awhile back and it was a fun little thing!
As mentioned, there’s only 30 units available so you better be quick if you’re interested in getting one. The MINI Seven Edition retails at RM253,888 without insurance, and it comes with the MINI 4 Years Unlimited Mileage Warranty with Free Scheduled Service.
