MINI is enhancing its UK lineup with the launch of a special edition model called ‘Graphite’ that comes with numerous standard features and is available in MINI One, Cooper and Cooper D guises. All Graphite models are finished in a Dark Silver metallic paint that is normally reserved for MINI Cooper S and John Cooper Works models. Priced at £13,075 OTR the MINI One Gaphite’s standard equipment includes black stripes, white indicators, piano black interiors, special badges on the B-pillars and 15-inch alloy wheels
The Cooper and Cooper D Graphite models cost £14,590 and £15,660 OTR with buyers being able to choose between black or white bonnet strips while both versions get larger 16-inch alloy wheels. According to MINI, if a buyer were to specify these options on a standard hatch, the total cost of the extra kit would be £225-£280 over that of a Graphite edition.
