Mini Crystal Edition was launched in Japan image

The “British” based automaker Mini has recently unveiled a special edition Crystal model, based on the Cooper and Cooper S, in Japan, borrowing the name from the London Crystal Palace and offering some interesting features to the popular vehicle.

After introducing the Cooper to the Indian auto market, the manufacturer is taking another step into gaining new Asian customers by launching the Crystal Edition in Japan, which will be available in limited numbers.

Mini says that its Crystal Edition will come in High-Class Grey Metallic with a black roof, along with “Crystal” bonnet stripes and larger twin-blade 17 inch lightweight alloy rims, with the design being continued in the interior, where the automaker used a Satellite Grey finish with Carbon Black elements, along with leather fitted on the door panels, floor mat edges and dashboard.

All this “exclusivity” doesn’t come in cheap and Mini is offering the Crystal Edition which starts at 3.170.000 YEN (29.861 EUR) for the six-speed manual transmission Cooper, while the six-speed automatic version costs 3.300.000 YEN (31.086 EUR). For the Cooper S Crystal Edition, customers will have to pay 3.510.000 YEN (33.064 EUR) for the manual, while the automatic has been priced at 3.690.000 YEN (34.759 EUR).
