Special Edition MINI Bayswater

The MINI Bayswater wears its inherent sporting élan and extrovert style very much on its sleeve. The Kite Blue metallic exterior paintwork was created exclusively for the special-edition model, as was the interior design and 17-inch light alloy Sandblast wheels with high-gloss black surfaces and bright machined rim and spoke edges. Midnight Black metallic and Eclipse Grey metallic paint shades can be ordered for the MINI Cooper S as an alternative to the new radiant blue finish.


The sporty appearance of the MINI Bayswater is emphasised by the black contrasting roof and the likewise newly created Sport Stripes for the bonnet, which streak dynamically towards the windscreen. The exterior mirror caps carry an identical stripe design – blue on the right-hand side of the car, grey on the left.

“Bayswater” lettering adorns the side indicator surrounds, door sills and seat tags. The Punch Leather seats come in the exclusive colour variant Rocklite Anthracite and include side bolsters sporting a metallic sheen and blue-and grey contrast stitching. Two-tone contrast stitching also adorns the gearshift/selector lever and handbrake gaiters.


Other innovative design features in the interior include Piano Black cockpit trim strips, which continue the path set by the Sport Stripes over the bonnet,and the leather Colour Line elements in Rocklite Anthracite, whose classy character is emphasised by black stitching. The same leather variant is also used for the armrests, while the model-specific floor mats have anthracite-coloured edging and blue contrast stitching.


The MINI Bayswater also comes with stainless steel pedals and the Chrome Line Interior package, and includes the Pepper Pack in its range of equipment. Plus, the new special edition can likewise be specified with a wide variety of items from the optional equipment list if further individual touches are the order of the day.


MINI Cooper S Bayswater features 184 hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine offering the necessary bite to back up its sporting aura. The MINI Bayswater also comes as standard with a six-speed automatic transmission.


The MINI Bayswater takes its name from an extremely vibrant area of London. Located to the west of the city centre – half way between the shopping hot spots of Knightsbridge and Notting Hill – Bayswater is best known for its unusually high density of bars and restaurants.


MINI is therefore returning to the London theme to further accentuate the link with both its home country and the fascination surrounding the London lifestyle. Indeed, the MINI Bayswater is following in the tyre tracks of a naming tradition begun by the classic Mini.

New exterior paint finishes, soft-top colours and wheel designs developed specially for the MINI Cabrio Highgate provide the external expression of its exclusive aura. The new body colour Iced Chocolate metallic captures the imagination with its refined and understated basic colour and a special pigmentation that reveals a subtle, bluish lustre under the sun’s rays.


In keeping with the theme, the brown soft- top roof also has a light metallic sheen.

The MINI Coupé is a new two-seater model to the MINI family that is geared squarely to maximizing driving fun. Not only does this two-seater breathe a new life into MINI’s successful racing history, it’s also a major boost to the super-compact sports car class.


The selection of engine, chassis set-up, weight distribution and aerodynamic properties of the MINI Coupé are all focused on delivering optimum performance. As a result, the new car radiates the brand’s hallmark go-kart feeling with a whole new depth of intensity and achieves the best performance statistics ever recorded by a volume-produced MINI.

Its flat silhouette and innovative “helmet roof” lend the MINI Coupé a sporty and individual allure. In addition to the integral roof spoiler, an active rear spoiler optimizes airflow at higher speeds. 


Inside the car, the two-seater concept is emphasized by features such as oval recesses in the roof liner. With its extremely high-opening tailgate and large luggage area with through-loading facility, the MINI Coupé displays outstanding versatility in day-to-day driving, when transporting leisure items or sports gear, and on trips out with a lucky partner.

MINI Countryman bridges the gap between the classic MINI concept and a Sports Activity Vehicle, providing the unique driving excitement so typical of MINI to new target groups desiring extra space and flexibility.  MINI Countryman also offers the best possible passenger safety, having received a rating of 5 stars in the Euro NCAP crash test.


The MINI Countryman expresses the defining virtues of the brand in terms of design, premium quality, handling, efficiency and the scope for customization – and does so in an absorbingly individual way.


The interior is in keeping with the brand’s familiar style but boasts a selection of new design and functional elements. The slightly raised seating position allows easy entry, optimizes the driver’s view over the road and reinforces the powerful character of the new model.

Exterior options include the range of non-metallic colors of Pure Red, Bright Yellow, Light Coffee, Surf Blue and Light White. 


The model comes as standard with five seats, equipped with central armrest. The rear seats can be moved forwards and backwards individually or in a 60 : 40 split; the angle of the backrests can be adjusted and the backrests can be folded down either individually or in a 40 : 20 : 40 split, all of which allows luggage capacity to be increased from 350 liters to a maximum 1,170 liters.


Sport seats for driver and front passenger, sports leather steering wheel with gearshift paddles and multifunction steering wheel with cruise control and sport button are featured in the interior. The seats are exceedingly stylish with a cloth/leather combination with Parallel Lines in Carbon Black/Light Tobacco or Carbon Black/Pure Red, with Colour Line options Carbon Black, Dark Tobacco, Polar Beige, Pure Red or Surf Blue.  The interior color comes with Polar Beige or Dark Tobacco, while the interior surface offers Dark Silver or Piano Black.
