Mini has announced its third London-themed special edition in as many weeks. The Mini Convertible Highgate joins two limited-run versions of the hatchback: Mini Baker Street and Mini Bayswater.

The Mini Convertible Highgate can be ordered in Cooper, Cooper S, Cooper D or Cooper SD variants, with a six-speed manual as standard. A six-speed automatic is offered as an option.

It features a new paint finish, Iced Chocolate metallic, a brown fabric hood with a light metallic sheen and brown/black bonnet stripes with blue edging. Midnight Black and White Silver metallic paintwork can be optionally specified.

The Highgate edition is fitted with body coloured door mirror caps, 17-inch Double Cross alloy wheels in a bespoke shaded aluminium finish and Highgate badging.

Inside, the limited edition model comes with Dark Truffle coloured leather seats with contract stitching and a mixture of alloy and stainless steel trim.

The Mini Convertible Highgate is priced from £21,080 on the road, rising to £25,830 for the Cooper SD auto variant. It is available for order now, with the first deliveries slated for March.
