What MINI calls, “A vintage motorsport-inspired exterior finish” paint called Ice Blue is exclusive to the Millbrook Edition.
Black 17-inch alloys work beautifully with the Ice Blue paint. The black theme continues on the roof and mirror caps. Black Line exterior trims and JCW bonnet stripes continue the theme.
Additional driving lights and covers are a nod to the original Mini’s giant-killing rallying endeavours in the 1960s.
Sun protection glazing and a sunroof are standard.
High-end Lounge leather upholstery, piano black dash surfaces and other details areas follow the exterior theme.
These additions build on the standard specifications of the MINI John Cooper Works Hatch: a 12-speaker harman/kardon sound system; an 8.8-inch touchscreen; Professional navigation; Adaptive suspension; park assist; LED headlights with union jack-styled LED tail lights and Anthracite roof lining.
Millbrook Edition is powered by a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine with specific JCW tuning to generate 170kW of power and 320Nm of torque. It sits beside an eight-speed automatic and features launch control and paddle shifters.
“We love demonstrating the wide range of personalisation options available to MINI owners,” said MINI Australia chief, Brett Waudby.
“Millbrook, with its specific appearance and JCW performance, is a fitting special edition offer for the recently-updated MINI Hatch range. And with only 20 destined for the Australian market, it will become a collector’s item,” he said.
The MINI Millbrook is available to order now and is priced from $57,275 plus on-road costs.
