MINI is enhancing its model range with a stunning special edition – the MINI Graphite. The new specification is available in MINI One, Copper, and Cooper D guise. The Graphite stands out from the crowd with dark silver metallic paint, bonnet stripes, and upgraded specification.
The Mini One Graphite features white indicator lenses, black bonnet stripes, piano black interior, Graphite badges, and 15-inch rotator spoke alloy wheels. The Cooper and Cooper D Graphite specification adds 16-inch bridge spoke alloys, and a choice of black or white bonnet stripes.
MINI claim previous special editions, such as the MINI One Se7en, have been 'hugely successful' and instrumental in maintaining strong residual values. Therefore, MINI believe a used Graphite One will be worth 3% more than a standard car. Brand new prices range from £ 13,075 to £ 15,660 (OTR).
