    The Mini gets a gloss black paint scheme with silver accents and bonnet scoops that have a special decal to emphasise that it's a special edition. Mini has given thes roof and wing mirrors these silver accents, which it calls ‘melting silver’. However, the most striking bit on the outside is the decal that sits between the front quarter panel and the front door. An overlay of black and silver lines break up the otherwise simple design, which the company claims gives the SUV an “an air of mystery”.
