MINI have been extremely busy recently what with their latest revamp, launch of the 5 door and completely new MINI Clubman but fortunately they have also managed to squeeze in time to share the following with MotorMartin. To celebrate the upcoming launch of the new MINI Convertible, MINI has unveiled a limited edition model, MINI Open 150 Convertible Edition and it looks fantastic. Anyone with any doubts should gaze upon the pictures accompanying this article.
If the look of the 150 Open Convertible has caught your eye then you need to make a decision extremely quickly as MINI have confirmeinteriorse 150 Open is to be launched in the UK only and just 150 (surprisingly) of this exclusive model will be available to order from March 2016.
Exclusive to the interior of MINI Open 150 Edition is the new Leather Chester Malt Brown upholstery. On the dashboard is a specially designed Open 150 Edition plaque and door entry strips also hold the unique Open 150 Edition badge. MotorMartin likes the look of the interior of the standard MINI and so this new 150 Open edition looks even more special with the leather seats being particularly striking.
MINI Open 150 Convertible Edition comes packed with standard equipment, including heated seats, MINI Yours Soft-top and 18” MINI Yours Alloys. Chili Pack and Media Pack are also standard on MINI Open 150 Edition, featuring a number of popular options including satellite navigation and LED headlights. Over the years, MINI has managed to create exactly the right mix of retro and modern with their interiors and this new edition is no exception. Those toggles still look cool even now.
The MINI Rain Warner function and MINI Always Open Timer have been developed exclusively for MINI Convertible and are available as standard on the MINI Open 150 Convertible Edition. If the car is parked with the roof open and the forecast is bad, MINI Rain Warner sends a message to warn the driver via their smartphone. When the car is being driven and there is rain forecast ahead, the driver will be alerted on the centre console. The digital Always Open Timer registers the time spent driving with the roof down. Is there anything that MINI have not thought of?
MINI have explained to MotorMartin that the equipment offered on the MINI Open 150 Convertible Edition is in addition to the exceptionally high level of standard equipment already offered on the rest of the MINI Convertible range. Highlights include MINI Connected, MINI Visual Boost Radio, Rear Parking Distance Control and Rear Reversing Camera.
As previously stated, only 150 MINI Open 150 Edition convertibles will be sold to UK customers and will be available to order from March 2016. Prices start from £29,990.
