Inspired by classic MINI heritage, and fusing it with modern design and technology, MINI has launched its latest design model, the MINI Seven, taking its name from the 1959 Austin Seven - the very first MINI.
The MINI Seven joins the current generation MINI Hatch range in 5-door or 3-door form with specially designed exterior and interior looks, and has been "developed to showcase both the distinctive style inspired by the original Mini and the current modern values of the brand."
Instantly recognisable by its striking MINI Yours body finish which comes as standard in Lapisluxury Blue - the most intensive blue tone ever applied to a MINI - the MINI Seven also features 3 other body finishes from the MINI paint range; Pepper White, Midnight Black and British Racing Green.
The look is continued and added to by a Melting Silver roof, exterior mirror caps, MINI Seven door sill finishers and 17" light alloy wheels in exclusive MINI Seven Spoke two-tone design, and it is possible to add some personal style with bonnet stripes in Melting Silver with a Malt Brown surround available as an option.
Inside, there is plenty of style with exclusively-designed sports seats in a Diamond Malt Brown fabric/leather finish one of the first things you see, before turning your attention to the MINI Seven logo on the central instrument, the MINI Visual Boost 6.5’’ colour display with MINI Connected, Bluetooth Handsfree with USB audio, floor mats, MINI Excitement Pack, automatic dual-zone air conditioning and storage compartment pack - all of which come as standard.
The MINI Seven also offers its own bespoke option pack, the MINI Seven Chili, which offers MINI Yours features such as the Lounge Leather Upholstery in Carbon Black and the MINI Yours Steering Wheel in Walk Nappa leather with a waxed hand stitched seem, and technology such as LED headlights, multifunction controls for the steering wheel and cruise control with brake function; all of which are pretty much unheard of in the small car sector.
Making its UK premiere at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on the MINI stand from 23-26th June, the MINI Seven also offers other additional equipment such as the panorama glass roof, windscreen heating, front driver and passenger seat heating, the Harmon Kardon hi-fi speaker system as well as MINI Connected XL and MINI Navigation System.
