MINI is to celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with a one-off MINI Hatch designed specifically to commemorate the special occasion and to be donated to one of the couple’s chosen charities. After the wedding day on 19 May, this one-of-a-kind MINI will be handed over to The Children’s HIV Association (CHIVA) for public auction.

“As an iconic British brand with almost 60 years of history in the UK, we are pleased to mark the royal wedding with this special charitable gift,” explains Oliver Heilmer, Head of MINI Design. “The MINI Design team has created a one-off MINI Hatch for the occasion. Its specially designed roof graphic combines with 3D-printed interior and exterior details as well as special embroidery to make this a MINI like no other.”

The exterior.
This unique car is finished in Crystal White. Silver-blue accent strips lend the body a distinctive look and the black band that wraps around the car features a blue-tinted matt silver paint finish. Recognisable MINI design features in chrome, such as the frame for the hexagonal radiator grille, the door handles and the surrounds for the headlights and rear lights are topped off with a blue-black tinted clear coat, bringing modernity and a freshness of detail to the MINI. Rear lights in Union Jack design and dark-blue matt metallic wheel rims put the finishing touches to its external appearance.

Hand-made roof graphic and 3D printing.
A particular highlight of the exterior is the roof’s paint finish, which uses multiple colours. The roof graphic is applied meticulously by hand in several layers and brings together elements of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s national flags – the Union Jack and the Stars & Stripes. The special MINI’s side scuttles around the side turn signal indicators have been 3D-printed. When the car is opened, they project an exclusive “Just Married” welcome onto the ground in front of the driver’s door and front-passenger door.

The interior.
Satellite Grey leather has been chosen for the interior and provides the ideal backdrop against which to accentuate the bespoke elements of the MINI. The blue-black tinted clear coat of the chrome exterior elements can also be found on selected chrome interior features. Another special feature of the interior is an accent inspired by the roof graphic, which is integrated into the trim strips in the doors, behind the steering wheel and into the head restraints. On the latter, there is an abstract take on the Union Jack on one side and a Stars & Stripes perforation and stitching on the other.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
