Resolute. Untold. Untamed. Those are character traits that MINI claims have defined its iconic small car, through both the original model and its second life as BMW’s premium small hatch.
And so it now will shout those words from beyond the marketing handbook with a trio of special models that bring another layer of uniqueness across MINI’s range of vehicles.
Due to arrive in Australia showrooms from late 2022, the MINI Resolute Edition will be offered on the MINI hatch in all three body styles, three-door and five-door hatchbacks and two-door Convertible.
The larger five-door MINI Clubman will receive its own exclusive treatment with the Untold Edition while the Countryman SUV is available with its unique Untamed Edition.
For the Resolute models, MINI has incorporated a traditional exterior colour scheme with Rebel Green (a paint colour that previously reserved exclusively for the flagship MINI John Cooper Works) with a Pepper White roof and unique bronze accents in the front grille, headlight surrounds, door handles and tailgate.
There’s also black 18-inch alloy wheels, piano black badging and matching highlights in the radiator grille and tailpipes and bespoke bonnet stripes with a gradient between light and dark gold with RESOLUTE lettering.
Inside the cabin, the sports seats can be cloaked in either black Leather Lounge or a Light Chequered cloth/faux leather combination, an anthracite roof liner and a unique emblem on the lower spoke of the Nappa leather-covered steering wheel.
The Resolute Edition is available on the Cooper and Cooper S models in five-door configuration and cost from $45,800 (plus on-road costs) and $55,540 (plus ORCs) respectively.
In the classic three-door hatchback, it can be had with the Cooper S ($53,800 plus ORCs) or fully electric Cooper SE ($63,825 plus ORCcs), while the Convertible is only available in Cooper S trim ($59,880 plus ORCs).
For the Clubman Untold edition, it is offered in metallic Sage Green with dark green exterior highlights, unique 18-inch alloy wheels with a two-tone appearance, brass accents in the grille and the standard fitment of the John Cooper Works aerodynamic package.
It also has an exclusive Untold decal applied to the bonnet and side of the vehicle as well as black tailpipes, mirror caps and exterior badges.
The cabin features matching Sage Green leather seat trim with light-coloured piping and brass accents on the air conditioning vents.
Prices for the MINI Clubman Untold edition start at $58,900 (plus ORCs) for the Cooper S and top out at $72,250 (plus ORCs) for the John Cooper Works with its 225kW 2.0-litre engine.
The treatment is similar for the MINI Countryman Untamed Edition, which is available only in metallic Momentum Grey with matching body-coloured exterior highlights.
It is contrasted by a black roof, mirror caps and 18-inch wheels as well as a series of decals with four diagonal stripes in Frozen Bluestone down the flanks of the vehicle.
The cockpit design theme has been inspired by nature with a mix of blues and greens around the interior, and landscape patterns on the door trims as well as UNTAMED logos in the seat backs.
The MINI Countryman Untamed is offered on the Cooper S model for $62,400 (plus ORCs) or the plug-in hybrid-powered Cooper SE for $70,000 (plus ORCs).
All three MINI special editions are available to order now with first deliveries scheduled to arrive before the end of 2022.
