The Mini 60 Year Edition. You don't need to be Sherlock Holmes to work out how they chose a name for it.

Still, as the original Mini is one of the most iconic cars on the road, you can’t blame the brand for indulging in some birthday celebrations for its 60th year.

In total, 500 of these three-door-only limited edition models will roll off the production line of Mini's Oxford plant. They'll do it rather quickly, too, as the only engine available is the 2.0-litre turbocharged Cooper S lump.

So, with many other ‘special edition’ or ‘anniversary’ versions of cars - it's often the case that the changes are purely cosmetic. So too, with the 60 Year Edition. It’s based on the standard Cooper S, but gets a host of styling tweaks, including this fetching British Racing Green paint, with a black contrast roof.

Plus, you get some Bonnet stripes. And, of course, a 60 Years emblem.

In fact, there's very little chance of you forgetting that its Mini's birthday - because the 60 Years motif appears in several different places.

And as another exclusive addition to this model, you get these nifty two-tone 17in alloys as standard.

But possibly the coolest additions to this Mini are these spot lamps fitted to the front radiator grille. The car also gets automatic LED headlights and rear lights for maximum visibility. And the cosmetic tweaks continue inside. Click on to the next page to find out about them...
