MINI is launching a new limited edition Countryman Special Edition.

The MINI Countryman Special Edition has been developed by the manufacturer's Special Order programme, set up to allow customers to place orders for special edition models direct through MINI retailers.

Recognisable by its exclusive Space Grey Metallic roof and mirror caps, teamed with 18in five-star double spoke alloy wheels in black and absolute black metallic body paint, up to 250 MINI Countryman Special Edition models will be available in the UK.

The latest addition to the Countryman range comes packed with standard equipment including MINI Navigation System, voice control, MINI Connected, enhanced Bluetooth with USB audio and multi-function steering wheel. Heated front seats, automatic air conditioning and xenon headlights are also standard.

Inside, the Countryman Special Edition has piano black interior surfaces and leather upholstery in gravity-carbon black.

Customers can choose between the Cooper S ALL4 Countryman or Cooper SD ALL4 Countryman with manual or automatic transmissions. Both model options are paired with MINI's ALL4 all-wheel drive system which quickly reacts to changes in road conditions, while still providing that MINI driving experience.
