The British carmaker has just announced two special editions for the Mini Cooper, the Mini Baker Street and the Mini Bayswater, which are scheduled to go on sale starting March 1.
The Mini Baker Street takes its name from the famous street featured in Arthur Conan Doyle’s novel “Sherlock Holmes” and offers a new gray color for the roof, two stripes on the front hood, 16-inch wheels finished in black paint, just like side mirror casings. Of course, since it’s a special edition, badges aren’t missing, placed behind the lateral turning signals in order to highlight this special edition’s exclusive character.
The model’s name is also embedded on the interior on the side sills and on the gear knob. The gray color on the exterior is found on the interior too, the sports seats and the door trims being finished in the same color. The floor mats have also been customized and feature contrasting stitching, while a chrome package completes the interior’s look.
Besides this aesthetic upgrades, the special edition will be available with air conditioning, onboard computer, leather wrapped steering wheel, fog lights and a chrome package for the exterior. Customers will be able to order the “Baker Street” package for the Mini One (98 hp), the Mini Cooper (122 hp), the Mini One D (90 hp) and the Mini Cooper D (112 hp).
The other special edition, the Mini Bayswater comes with a sportier and more exclusive look than the Baker Street, being available for the top of the line models in the Cooper range, the Mini Cooper S and the Mini Cooper SD. A special paint color was created for the edition, called Kite Blue, plus a new set of 16 inch Sandblast alloy wheels. The sporty look is completed by the black roof, the stripes on the front hood and two tone side mirrors casings, blue and gray.
Bayswater badges can be seen on the exterior, on the side sills and on the sports seats covered in Rocklite Antharcite leather with contrasting stitching. The same pattern is also used for the gear knob and the hand brake lever. Continuing the sporty look of the interior, the British carmaker tried to create a beautiful interior too, so the sporty lines on the roof can also be found on the interior, where black leather with contrasting stitching was also used for the dashboard and door trims.
Mini has announced that when the two models hit showrooms, two other special editions will be discontinued, the Pimlico and Soho. But if you’re a fan of these two, we have some good news too, because the special White Silver color that was available on the Soho will now be available for all Cooper versions.
