When introducing limited edition models, some manufacturers plaster their cars with stickers, shiny wheels, slap on a “one of” badge and call it a day. That’s hardly any different than taking a regular car to an aftermarket expert eh?
MINI Malaysia understands the significance of the term “Limited Edition” and isn’t about to smear its significance with some 3M stickers – and as such, is appealing to the sophisticated ladies and the fine gentlemen with the 20-unit limited edition MINI Clubman Sterling Edition.
In an unprecedented move, keen buyers can only place a booking for the car online at MINI’s dedicated website. The flash sale will go live from 15 August till 26 August 2017. To secure a booking, potential buyers will have to put down a RM2,000 deposit with an indicative price tag of RM268,888.
So, what do you get for a RM15k premium over a regular Cooper S Clubman? For starters, it is only available in Melting Silver that’s contrasted with the Black Union Jack roof, mirror caps and side scuttles. It rides on bespoke 18-inch MINI Yours Masterpiece alloy wheels, also finished in black.
Inside, aside from all the standard options of a Cooper S Clubman, the Sterling Edition adds on with Indigo Blue and Pure Burgundy leather upholstery, “Walknappa” leather steering wheel and MINI Yours illuminated interior.
Mechanically, it is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, making 192 hp and 280 Nm of torque. The century sprint is completed in 7.1 seconds before the Clubman maxes out at 228km/h. Power is sent to the front wheels via an eight-speed Aisin-sourced automatic transmission.
Managing Director and CEO of BMW Group Malaysia, Mr. Han Sang Yun said, “Today, the New MINI Clubman Sterling Edition, is a modern take on one of the most iconic cars in the world. Limited to only 20 units made available in Malaysia, this MINI is exceptionally well-made with unique versatility to its body concept and individual style. Known as the car for the vibrant individuals of the modern age, this limited-edition MINI is bound to excite and make its mark in the premium compact segment”
Like all MINI models sold via BMW Group Malaysia, the MINI Clubman Sterling Edition comes with 4-Years Unlimited Mileage Warranty with Free Scheduled Service.
