2017 SEMA: Mini Cooper S ICE Blue, Countryman & Clubman JCW kit image

The BMW Group is among the top performers at this year’s edition of the SEMA show in Las Vegas, putting on display in front of the worldwide audience a raft of models – also from Mini.

Along with the BMW stars, Mini has joined the party in Las Vegas with the new Ice Blue special edition based on the Cooper S hardtop, a model exclusive to the United States acting as a limited-run version that can be had from $29,450, or if you want the simpler Cooper version you can have it for $24,950. For the money you’re getting the exclusive Ice Blue, mixed with bright orange accents in the case of the hot S model. It also rides on 17-inch black wheels and comes bundled with a contrasting black roof with a panoramic sunroof.

Without telling us how many Ice Blue edition examples is going to sell in a “limited number” on a first-come, first-served basis, Mini is also directing our attention towards its other novelty – the introduction of the new John Cooper Works Tuning Kit (pictured above) that can be had with the Clubman and Countryman in the Cooper S and Cooper S All4 versions. It will bring a power increase for the turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline engine from 189 to 208 horsepower and delivers 221 pound feet of torque from 1,350 rpm. There are also carbon fiber exhaust tips as well as a Bluetooth actuated exhaust valve system allowing owners to pick Sport or Sport+ mods for the engine’s soundtrack. It’s going to be available early next year in the US from $1,950 MSRP.
