A limited edition Oxford-built Mini is being launched to mark the start of the 60th anniversary year of the iconic British brand.

Priced at £29,990, just 500 of the special three-door Mini 60 Years Edition hatchback will be made for UK buyers.

The car, which will be sold worldwide, will be finished in British Racing Green paint, with black exterior trim, black roof and exterior mirror caps, special anniversary design bonnet stripes and exclusive 17-inch light alloy wheels.

Inside, the car has a special leather-trimmed interior with 60 Years emblems on the steering wheel and front seats. The emblems are also fitted to the bonnet and turn indicators and an LED projector fitted on the driver’s door will shine the emblem on the ground outside the car.

Mini says the car will be highly equipped, with a larger touchscreen display with satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth connectivity and wireless charging. It will also come with a rear view camera, front and rear parking sensors and folding exterior mirrors.

Every model in the UK will be sold with an additional set of Mini spot lamps fitted to the front radiator grille.
As with all Mini hatchback models it also comes as standard with LED front and rear lights, an emergency call system, automatic headlights and rain sensor.

The limited run of cars will be available in UK showrooms from March.
