All 500 units are finished in British Racing Green, with a black roof and black mirror caps. Limited edition two-tone 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlamps and MINI spot-lamps also feature, along with 60th anniversary bonnet stripes and badging across the car’s interior and exterior.

Inside, the 60th anniversary edition Cooper S Hatch is trimmed in dark brown leather with green piping and white stitching.

Customisable ambient lighting, a wireless smartphone charger and parking sensors are fitted too, as well as MINI’s larger 8.8-inch infotainment system, with sat-nav, Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth connectivity.

It’s powered by the 189bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine found in the standard Cooper S. As such, the 60th anniversary edition model will do 0-62mph in 6.7 seconds and top out at 146mph.

It will be offered in the UK exclusively with an automatic transmission, which means fuel economy figures of up to 43.5mpg, and CO2 emissions of 129g/km of CO2.
