Aussies First To Get 2012 MINI Hyde Park and Green Park Special Editions

Car Advice reports MINI has introduced the Hyde Park and Green Park special editions ahead of the 2012 London Olympics. The special editions get exclusive color and trim combinations and are available for the Hatch and Clubman across the globe. MINI Australia expects the first arrivals near the end of the year.

Car Advice says:
The Mini Hyde Park has a Pepper White body contrasted against Hot Chocolate paintwork on the roof and exterior wing mirrors – a combination available for the first time – and Hot Chocolate sports stripes down each side of the car and length of the bonnet. The bottom sections of the Mini’s C-pillar, which are normally left black, have also been sprayed Pepper White completing the look Mini describes as “unobtrusive extravagance”.

The Mini Green Park, said to expresses “the traditional British passion for sporting competition”, continues the contrasting theme of the Hyde Park but with the roof and mirrors in British Racing Green paintwork to stand out against the Pepper White bodywork. The stripes too get the British Racing Green treatment to complete the design.

Inside both models receive the same Pepper White trim details on the doors with seats available in cloth and leather, or Leather Gravity with Carbon Black or Polar Beige highlights. While other markets receive a ‘Mini Yours’ leather-lined dashboard, Aussie deliveries will retain the standard Mini dash.
