MINI Malaysia today introduced the exclusive MINI 60 Years Edition to commemorate “six decades of iconic design and thrilling go-kart handling”.
“For over 60 years, MINI has captured the hearts of millions worldwide for its timeless motor racing spirit,” says BMW Group Malaysia managing director Harald Hoelzl.
“With the MINI 60 Years Edition in the brighter and more eye-catching ‘New British Racing Green’ exterior paint finish, this exclusive model pays tribute to MINI’s British racing pedigree and paves the way for a new era.
“Captivating from every angle, the MINI 60 Years Edition radiates style and attitude – with a nod to the past, while looking towards an exciting future.”

There’s no other image that clearly shows the car in full; it’s either too far from the camera, partially obscured by shadows or covered by a model’s @$$. Is MINI somewhat embarrassed to show it? We don’t know; but obviously you are expected to drive all the way to one of the oh-so-many MINI showrooms to really see it.
