Special Edition Seven trim has classic styling mixed with modern technology plus a new, bespoke, option pack.
1959 Austin Seven inspires new trim
The MINI Seven is a new, Special Edition, trim that blends the fashionable look of its classic predecessors with current technology. Its name is inspired by the original MINI - the 1959 Austin Seven – and it is only available via the 3 and 5-Door Hatch.
Seven trim exterior features include standard-fit Lapisluxury Blue paintwork. MINI argued this is the “most intensive” blue ever applied to its range. Alternatives include: Pepper White, Midnight Black and British Racing Green which are reminiscent of old models.
The Melting Silver roof and mirror caps contrast the main exterior colour. The Seven also has: branded door sill finishers, branded side scuttles and 17”, 2-tone, light alloy wheels. Melting Silver bonnet stripes with Malt Brown outline can be specified optionally.
The MINI Seven cabin has sports seating with a fabric/leather Diamond Malt Brown finish. It complements a “Seven” logo on the central instrument which surrounds the MINI Visual Boost 6.5” colour screen. Bluetooth and dual-zone climate control feature too.

The Seven can be applied to the: Cooper (136hp), Cooper S (192hp), Cooper D (116hp) and Cooper SD (170hp). Performance, fuel efficiency and emissions vary depending on the body style and gearbox.
