Highgate is a new special edition of the MINI Convertible which, according to MINI comes with “an essential dose of Brit-cool,” whatever that is.
This soft-top four-seater MINI comes with specially-designed exterior and interior design features. It’s not a limited edition, but will be produced for a limited period of time, which amounts to the same thing. Sales begin from Spring 2012.
The Highgate-special features on the outside include unique paint finishes, soft-top colours and wheel designs, in addition to details such as body-colored mirror caps, and bonnet stripes. It can be had a chocolaty combination with Iced Chocolate metallic finish for the body, brown soft-top, and brown/black bonnet stripes.
It also features “Highgate” lettering on the side indicator surrounds, door sills and seat tag.
Inside the cabin you get Lounge Leather seats and leather Colour Line elements come in Dark Truffle. Light blue piping on the seats and Dark Truffle contrast stitching on the gearshift/selector lever and handbrake gaiters are further highlights, in addition to stainless steel pedals, Suntouched Brushed Alloy interior trim elements, the Chrome Line Interior package and floor mats with Dark Truffle edging.
