MINI releases two limited edition JCW variants

MINI has launched two new limited-edition variants in Australia, the Nightfall Edition 3-door Hatch and Convertible. Only 40 Hatches ($70,990 driveaway) and 10 Convertibles ($75,290 driveaway) are available.

The editions are based on the John Cooper Works models and are powered by a “tuned-up” 2.0-litre TwinPower Turbo engine developing 170kW and 320Nm, driving the front wheels via an 8-speed automatic.

The fixed roof variant completes the 0-100km/h sprint in 6.1 seconds, with the convertible 0.4 seconds slower.

Exteriors are finished in a deep Enigmatic Black Metallic, and all chrome surfaces such as the headlight covers, door handles and waistline finishers on the Hatch have been re-treated in Piano Black.

Both cars feature a number of John Cooper Works upgrades, including a carbon fibre bonnet scoop, a John Cooper Works Sports Brake System upgrade, 17-inch Track spoke wheels finished in black and John Cooper Works tailpipe surrounds.

Edition specific badging and special blacked-out MINI logos complete the dark and bold exterior treatments to both Nightfall Edition MINI variants.

Inside, dark themes are extended on both cars with an Anthracite headlining (Hatch only), piano black interior surfaces and carbon black Dinamica/Leather combination John Cooper Works sports seats. Other upgrades include a John Cooper Works steering wheel finished in alcantara, and a John Cooper Works handbrake finished in carbon fibre.

MINI’s latest suite of interior technologies are showcased in both cars. Behind the steering wheel, a 5-inch digital screen replaces the traditional instrument binnacle, while the latest in infotainment, including wireless Apple CarPlay connectivity, are shown in an 8.8-inch touchscreen monitor in the centre console.

“We’ve seen our highest-ever rates of John Cooper Works sales in Australia this year, and these new Nightfall Editions are sure to up the ante. We’ve packed a massive amount of additional John Cooper Works upgrades into both cars, and we expect both cars to deliver heart-pounding thrills on both road and race track,” said Brett Waudby, General Manager for MINI in Australia and New Zealand on the new MINI Nightfall Editions.

Both models are now available for order online via MINI’s online deposit process.
