After only 10 years of production, Mini is celebrating the production of its two millionth unit and there’s no better way to heighten the festivities than to transform it into a special edition model. Called the "Mini 2 Million," the vehicle is a Mini Convertible specially painted in White Silver metallic and topped off with a blue denim roof.
Next to the special edition paint job, the Mini 2 Million will also receive a selection of bespoke interior and exterior options including special alloy wheels, a distinctive leather steering wheel, and lounge leather upholstery.
The Mini 2 Million will be given away as a prize for Mini’s global Facebook campaign called ‘Two Million MINIs – Two Million Faces.’ For this contest, Mini has been collecting photographs of the faces of two million MINI fans and building a dedicated Facebook ‘wall.’ The winner will be chosen at random after the campaign closes on September 30, 2011.
Frank-Peter Arndt, BMW AG board member responsible for production said: "Production of the two millionth MINI comes on the back of strong demand worldwide. Our recent announcement of an additional £500 million investment in our UK MINI production facilities demonstrates the important role that Oxford plays in our global production network. The most essential factors in the success of MINI are the skills, passion and dedication of our associates."
