Taking its name from the very first Mini, the 1959 Austin Seven, Mini Seven has been developed to showcase both the distinctive style inspired by the original Mini and the current modern values of the Mini brand.
Mini Seven joins the current generation Mini Hatch range in 5-door or 3-door form with specially designed exterior and interior looks unseen before on this generation’s model line-up.
Owners can choose from four different paint schemes – Lapisluxury Blue (shown above), Pepper White, Midnight Black, and British Racing Green. The options continue in the cabin, where owners can select the Seven-specific Diamond Malt Brown fabric/leather upholstery, or they can go with straight leather in Cross Punch Carbon Black, Lounge Satellite Grey, or Mini Yours Lounge Carbon Black. There are four dash trim options, too, with standard Piano Black, and optional Dark Cottonwood, Fibre Alloy, and Off-White. Below the trim strip, owners can have either a Malt Brown color line or Carbon Black.
The rise in price means a lot of extras: special 17in alloys, heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, Comfort Access, a Harmon/Kardon stereo, park-distance control, power-folding, auto-dimming mirrors, and a 6.5-inch Mini Connected system are all standard features as part of the Seven package, while additional options will be available, like on any other Cooper or Cooper S.
The MINI Seven will look to debut later this year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
