Two new limited edition MINI variants have been launched in New Zealand. With sleek dark treatment, the MINI Nightfall Edition 3-door Hatch and Convertible are both strikingly bold and confidently understated.

These latest special editions are based on the MINI John Cooper Works 3-Door Hatch and MINI John Cooper Works Convertible, both powered by tuned-up 2.0-litre TwinPower Turbo engines developing 170kW and 320Nm, driving the front wheels via an 8-speed automatic.

The fixed roof pocket rocket completes the 0-100km/h sprint in just 6.1 seconds, and if you want that with wind in your hair, the same process takes just 0.4 seconds more.

The Nightfall Edition then douses both cars in darkness. Exteriors are finished in a deep Enigmatic Black Metallic, and all chrome surfaces such as the headlight covers, door handles and waistline finishers on the Hatch have been re-treated in Piano Black.

Both cars also feature a number of John Cooper Works upgrades, including a carbon fibre bonnet scoop, a John Cooper Works Sports Brake System upgrade, 17-inch Track spoke wheels finished in black and John Cooper Works tailpipe surrounds.

Edition specific badging and special blacked-out MINI logos complete the dark and bold exterior treatments to both Nightfall Edition MINI variants.

Inside, dark themes are extended on both cars with an Anthracite headlining (3-door Hatch only), piano black interior surfaces and carbon black Dinamica/Leather combination John Cooper Works sports seats.

John Cooper Works upgrades continue inside, and here drivers receive a tactile treat thanks to a John Cooper Works steering wheel finished in alcantara, as well as a John Cooper Works handbrake finished in carbon fibre.

MINI’s latest suite of interior technologies are showcased in both cars. Behind the steering wheel, a 5-inch digital screen replaces the traditional instrument binnacle, while the latest in infotainment, including wireless Apple CarPlay connectivity, are shown in an 8.8-inch touchscreen monitor in the centre console.

“MINI enthusiasts have always been big fans of our John Cooper Works variants, and these new Nightfall Editions are sure to increase their appeal. We’ve packed a massive amount of additional John Cooper Works upgrades into both cars, and we expect both cars to deliver heart-pounding thrills on both road and race track,” commented Brett Waudby, General Manager for MINI in Australia and New Zealand on the new MINI Nightfall Editions.

The MINI Nightfall Edition John Cooper Works 3-door Hatch is priced at $70,990*, and the MINI Nightfall Edition John Cooper Works Convertible is priced at $75,990*.

Both models are now available for order online via MINI’s pioneering online deposit process.

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:
