MINI releases a new limited edition version of the MINI Convertible Sidewalk Edition as an ode to the original 2007 edition seen in the first generation of the MINI Convertible range. MINI calls the new variant, “sassy and spontaneous”, and will be made available with only 20 units in Malaysia.
A nod to the rich heritage to the MINI marque, the new convertible comes in a striking metallic Deep Laguna paintwork, a kind of deep blue metallic reminiscent of azure summer skies and is complemented with reflective geometric patterns embellishing the iconic MINI bonnet stripes.
Perhaps the most striking feature of the new model is the open-roof top, powered by an electrical function that allows the driver to pick from three different settings; fully down, fully up, or halfway in-between that can be accessed in a speedy and silent feature that lets you fold the hood up or down in 18 seconds flat, even at speeds of 30 km/hour, a useful function when facing the unpredictable tropical climate.
Under the bonnet, the convertible houses a powerful two-litre four-cylinder MINI TwinPower Turbo engine technology with a maximum speed of 230 km/hour. The vehicle takes up only about 5.7 litres of fuel per 100km, making it the perfect accompaniment for a cross-country trip.
