special-edition Minis celebrate 50 years of the brand
27 May 2009

Mini used its 50th birthday celebrations held at Silverstone last weekend to launch three new limited-edtion models: the Mini Mayfair, the Mini Camden and the Mini John Cooper Works World Championship 50.

The Mini Camden, available in Cooper, Cooper S or Cooper D guise, gets bespoke 17-inch alloys, a solid white roof, and is available in Midnight Black White Silver, and Horizon Blue. It starts from £18,165.

The Mini Mayfair, £300 more than the Camden, comes in Pepper White, Midnight Black or Hot Chocolate, and is fitted with toffee-coloured leather seats and 17-inch wheels. Like the Mayfair, the Mini Camden is also available in Cooper, Cooper S and Cooper D forms.

The final special edition is the Mini John Cooper Works World Championship 50. Only 250 will be made, finished in green with black alloys. Prices for the John Cooper Works World Championship 50 are yet to be confirmed.

The Mini Camden and Mayfair start from £18,165 and £18,415 respectively and deliveries start in August. The special editions will be produced for one year.
