Mini Convertible Highgate
The new Mini Convertible Highgate special-edition offers numerous exterior and interior design features built specially to match the character of the car. The name is taken from one of the most exclusive residential areas of London. Located in the north of England’s capital, Highgate is known for its historic architecture and wide open green spaces, and is home to numerous showbiz celebrities.

Two engine variants, MINI Cooper and Cooper S, will be offered for the MINI Convertible Highgate, which will be produced over a limited period at MINI Plant Oxford. The new special edition is due to go on sale worldwide in spring 2012.
New exterior paint finishes, soft-top colors and wheel designs developed specially for the MINI Convertible Highgate provide the external expression of its exclusive aura. The new body color, Iced Chocolate Metallic, captures the imagination with its refined and understated basic color, and a special pigmentation that reveals a subtle, bluish luster under the sun’s rays. In keeping with the theme, the brown soft-top roof also has a light metallic sheen. This distinctive look is further enhanced by brown/black bonnet stripes with blue edging. Midnight Black Metallic or White Silver Metallic paintwork can also be specified as an option.

The exterior mirror caps of the special-edition model are also painted in the body color. Another feature developed exclusively for the MINI Convertible Highgate are the 17-inch Double Cross light-alloy wheels in a refined, subtly-shaded aluminum color. The wheels’ spoke arrangement is inspired by the pattern of the Union Jack flag.

The “Highgate” lettering on the side indicator surrounds, door sills and seat tags is a nod to the car’s exclusive character, as are the bespoke colors and materials used in the interior. The Lounge Leather seats and leather Color Line elements come in Dark Truffle and feature light contrast stitching. Light blue piping on the seats and Dark Truffle contrast stitching on the gearshift/selector lever and handbrake gaiters are further highlights. Stainless steel pedals, Suntouched Brushed Alloy interior trim elements, the Chrome Line Interior package and floor mats with Dark Truffle edging round off the stylish interior ambience of the MINI Convertible Highgate.

In the U.S. the MINI Convertible Highgate can be ordered with the MINI Cooper (121 hp) engine for a package charge of $2,750 on top of the MINI Convertible base price, or with the MINI Cooper S (181 hp) engine for a package charge of $2,500. Both engines channel their power through a six-speed manual gearbox as standard or an optional six-speed automatic.
