There have been a whole range of unique MINI Special Editions available over the years. We’ve compiled some of the best models to help you decide which edition is right for you.
A MINI Special Edition does the hard work of choosing the details of your new MINI for you, defining everything from colour and spec, to trim level and power set in a unique package. As a nod to MINI’s British heritage, many are even named after an iconic London street, borough or location. They’re all available in limited numbers, so if you can’t find a MINI Special Edition new, Dick Lovett also stocks a wide range of used MINI models too.
