It has been 25 years since the launch of the Rover Mini Cabriolet. The celebratory 2018 model builds on the base of the Cooper S Convertible with lounge leather-covered seats, white mirror caps and 18in Mini Vanity wheels.
Each car is painted in Starlight Blue and wears contrasting white bonnet stripes. The fabric roof has a Union Jack pattern.
The kit list is based on that fitted to Chili pack models, so includes the top-spec sat-nav and a Harman Kardon sound system, while a numbered plaque has been added to signify the car’s anniversary status.
No changes to the engine have been made, so the 2.0-litre unit remains capable of 189bhp and 207lb ft of torque. It enables a 0-62mph time of 7.2sec and a top speed of 143mph.
Prices for the limited-run model start at £32,995. This is £9165 more than an entry-level Cooper S Convertible, although much of the cost increase can be attributed to the additional standard features of the 25th Anniversary variant.
