Leave it to Mini to present a special edition model every two weeks. After the “Baker Street” and “Bayswater” hatchbacks, it’s the convertible model’s turn to gain a new moniker.

This one is called is called “Highgate” and is offered with four engine variants including the 122bhp Cooper, 184bhp Cooper S, and for those markets that get diesel versions, the 112bhp Cooper D and 143bhp Cooper SD.

Regardless of the engine, power is channelled to the front wheels through a standard six-speed manual or an optional automatic with the same number of gears.

On the outside, the Highgate Convertible is identified by the new Iced Chocolate metallic hue for the body with brown/black bonnet stripes with blue edging, the brown soft-top and the 17″ Double Cross light-alloy wheels. Mini also offers Midnight Black and White Silver metallic paintworks for the body as an option.

The same colour theme continues inside with the leather seats finished in Dark Truffle with light contrast stitching and light blue piping. Stainless steel pedals, Suntouched Brushed Alloy interior trim elements, and the Chrome Line Interior package come as standard.

The new Mini Convertible Highgate will go on sale worldwide in April.
