MINI Malaysia has just taken to social media to tease two of their upcoming products – the MINI Urbanite Edition and MINI Amplified Edition. The two special edition models appear to appeal to the younger (or young at heart) generation, with unique cosmetic personalisation inside and out.
Based on the video, the Urbanite Edition seems to be based on the Cooper 5-Door as denoted by the horizontal front grille and the single exhaust outlet at the rear. New items include grille mounted MINI headlamps, blacked-out side mirrors, roof and rims, red bonnet stripe, red side decals as well as Urbanite Edition emblem at the rear. Expect the interior to benefit from new trim design and emblems.
The standard Cooper 5-Door is powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged three-cylinder that gives 134 hp and 220 Nm of twisting force. Drive is sent to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. Century sprint takes 8.1 seconds and top speed is registered at 207 km/h.
The Amplified Edition, as the name suggests, is the louder and shoutier of the two. Based on the Cooper S 3-Door, the Amplified Edition gets the JCW Pro Aerodynamic kit, racing stripe on the bonnet, JCW Valve Silencer System, blacked out wheels as well as black trims on the headlamps and taillamps.
As hinted by the JCW Valve Silence System, the Amplified Edition should come naturally with the JCW Pro Tuning Kit that bumps the power output to 207 hp and 300 Nm of torque as well as a dedicated Track mode that gives a lot more aggressive pops and bangs.
No other information has been revealed about the two Special Edition MINI models such as whether the cars will only be offered online like the MINI Clubman Sterling Edition. But keen individuals can register their interest at their dedicated website.
