Auto Express Reviews The MINI Cooper D London 2012 Edition

Jamie Fretwell, writing for Auto Express, gives the MINI Cooper D London 2012 Edition three out of five stars.  Fretwell observes:
As one of the official partners of the Olympic Games, MINI has launched its London 2012 limited-edition hatchback models, including the Cooper D model driven here.

You can buy a London 2012 Edition in any colour from the Union Jack – Chili Red, White Silver or Lightning Blue – but only 2,012 cars will be made.

Our red test car had white mirror caps, a white roof with the London 2012 logo and a Union Jack stripe along the bonnet, roof and rear hatch – just like the rest of the Olympic editions.

It all helps the car to stand out, but some of the stickers look a little cheap. Thankfully, a set of 17-inch Ferris Grey Conical Spoke alloy wheels rounds off the exterior changes nicely.
