January 8, 2019: MINI Australia is proud to announce pricing and specification for the Millbrook Edition, a strictly limited-production machine based on the sporty John Cooper Works Hatch.
“We love demonstrating the wide range of personalisation options available to MINI owners,” said MINI Australia General Manager, Brett Waudby.
“It’s fantastic to express this via special edition vehicles, such as the Blackheath and Kensington MINIs we have recently showcased.
“Millbrook, with its specific appearance and JCW performance, is a fitting special edition offer for the recently-updated MINI Hatch range. And with only 20 destined for the Australian market, it will become a collector’s item,” he said.
Specific touches lift Millbrook to the next level
A vintage motorsport-inspired exterior finish has been applied to the Millbrook Edition. This metallic ‘Heritage’ paintwork, known as Ice Blue, is exclusive to the Millbrook Edition JCW Hatch.
Black 17-inch light-alloy wheels offset the Ice Blue paint and feature performance tyres for additional agility over the standard run flat tyres.
Providing additional differentiation are the standard-fit additional driving lights and covers, a nod to the original Mini’s giant-killing rallying endeavours in the 1960s.
Both the Millbrook Edition’s roof and mirror caps are finished in Black, with Black Line exterior trims and JCW bonnet stripes continuing the theme.
Sun protection glazing and a sunroof are fitted as standard; these are options for the regular JCW variant.
Moving inside, the high-end Lounge leather upholstery is standard-fit, with seat heating also standard. Piano Black dash surfaces and display surrounds continue the theme established by the exterior, while the eight-speed sports automatic transmission with gear shift paddles and Launch Control is fitted as standard (regular option cost of $2,950*).
These additions build on the already-impressive standard specification of the MINI John Cooper Works Hatch, including the 8.8-inch touchscreen control system with
- MINI Connected 4G with MINI Find Mate
- Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth connectivity with Wireless Phone Charging
- 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with specific JCW tuning, generating 170kW and 320Nm
- Front and Rear Park Distance Control with Park Assist function
- Dual-zone climate control
- DAB+ digital radio tuner
- Rain sensing wipers with automatic headlights
