MINI has announced the new Cooper Soho, which is the latest in what will be a series of London themed limited edition versions.
Available as a three-door hatchback or two-door convertible the Soho sits at the top of the Cooper range and follows-up the limited edition Soho Clubman from 2010.
Cosmetic changes over the standard car include; bespoke ‘White Silver’ metallic paint, 17-inch ‘Black Star Bullet’ alloy wheels and Bi-Xenon headlights with black reflective surrounds and white indicators.
Inside, the Soho features an Anthracite roof lining, a three-spoke leather sport steering wheel and a ‘piano black’ finish on some of the dashboard surfaces.
The Soho is available with the Cooper’s 122bhp, 1.6L petrol engine or the Cooper D’s 112bhp, 1.6L diesel engine. The latter is capable of 74.3mpg and emits just 99g/km CO2 making it exempt from the London Congestion charge.
Prices for the hatchback start at £16,765 for the Cooper and £18,045 for the Cooper D whereas the convertible starts at £19,060 for the Cooper and £20,135 for the Cooper D.
With the third generation MINI expected for launch in 2013, there will be a series of special edition MINIs named after famous London boroughs, districts, streets and landmarks to see out the current model.
The MINI Cooper Soho will be available until March 2012.
