Raft of new performance and special edition MINI's for 2011
MINI has announced a raft of new special and performance edition MINI's for 2011. Topping the bill is the MINI Cooper SD (pictured), which will be the most powerful diesel (& most torquey ever MINI) in the range: It's a two-litre, putting out 143bhp and 225lbft (28% more than Cooper D and 60% more than One D models), capable of 65.7mpg, 134mph and 0.62mph in 8.1s: So, pretty fast and mighty frugal. It will be available in Hatch, Convertible, Clubman and Countryman editions. Also launching in March is the new MINI Clubman Hampton special and MINI One Pimlico Hatch, complete with sports packs. The SD will be priced between £18,750 and £23,190, Hampton Clubman between £20,360 and £23,185 and One Pimlico between £14,465 and £18,490, spec depending.
