The Mini Cooper, one of the most recognisable vehicles on the road, turns 60 this year. To mark this significant milestone, the British automaker is rolling out the Mini 60 Years edition along with the Mini 60 Years Lifestyle Collection of clothing and accessories.
The special release is available for the Mini Cooper 3 Door, Mini Cooper S 3 Door, Mini Cooper 5 Door, and Mini Cooper S 5 Door. It’s available in the familiar British racing green, melting silver, midnight black, and luxury blue.

Other exterior highlights from the special edition include LED headlights, LED fog lamps, white turn indicators, and LED rear lights in the Union Jack design. To set the model apart, a special “60 Years” logo is added on the left-hand bonnet stripe, as well as on the side scuttles of the turn indicators. The new release also comes with a set of 17-inch 60 Years Spoke light alloy wheels in Dark Spectre Grey with Burnished Spokes design to complete the distinct look of the vehicles.
The special anniversary hatchbacks also feature an LED light projection. When opening or closing the driver’s door, the 60 Years logo will appear for 20 seconds. Other design elements include the anniversary logo added onto the seats, steering wheel, and door sills.
The car is also equipped with smart feature like the Mini Connected. This new digital feature allows drivers to access a variety of personalised services for easy mobility. This includes real-time traffic information and Apple CarPlay.
Each of these models comes with a 7-speed Steptronic transmission that allows for fast gearshifts and rapid acceleration.
The Mini 60 Years Lifestyle Collection
Together with the launch of the Mini 60, the British automaker has also released a collection of ready-to-wear and accessories for its hardcore fans. These include vintage logo tees, shopping bags, cross-shoulder bags, and a football.
