Mini Countryman Black Night Edition

Mini originated as a specific vehicle, a small car originally known as the Morris Mini-Minor and the Austin Seven, launched by the British Motor Corporation in 1959, and developed into a brand with a range of small cars. Mini means efficient production, economical car and social commitment, all mixed to offer a fun driving. The Mini Countryman is a crossover attempt of the brand. Mini USA is preparing to introduce a Black Night Edition of the vehicle.

The Mini Countryman Black Night Edition will be the first special edition based on this model for the U.S. The edition, as you can very easily guess, comes in a black matte paint. It will be the same paint that BMW has used for the Frozen labeled limited-run models. The new edition will be limited to only 60 units and they will be sold on a first-come, first-serve principle.  The edition targets only the Cooper S Countryman for now.  There are a few options that the client can choose according to his taste, including the transmission, be it automatic or manual. The extra things will definitely raise the vehicle’s price.

Just as a reminder, the Mini Cooper S Countryman hits 100 km/h in a much quicker 7.6 seconds due partly to the direct injection, twin-scroll turbocharged engine. Performance goes to 184 horsepower and 177 ft-lb of torque, but 192 ft-lb can be achieved with the over boost function.  Top speed can reach 214 km/h (133 mph). We’ll soon find out more details about the edition.
