You can't go wrong with an all-black special edition.
There's no doubting the fact that Mini builds some awesome looking cars. The modern Mini Cooper has become an icon in its own right and enjoys massive support from the aftermarket scene. Tuned Mini Coopers are always an awesome sight, but let us not forget that Mini has done an outstanding job of modifying and customizing its own cars. Special editions such as the hardcore JCW GP offer both exciting looks and improved performance but come at a steep price, so for those who only want to stand out in the looks department, Mini has always provided an abundance of optional gear and special editions, like this Nightfall Edition in Australia.
Those lucky enough to reside in Australia now get the opportunity to order a Mini Nightfall Edition, which looks as cool as it sounds. Mini describes the Nightfall Edition, which is based on the high-performance John Coopper Works car, as being "both strikingly bold and confidently understated". This special edition is clad in John Cooper Works accessories, and According to Mini Australia, only 40 3-Door hatchbacks, and 10 convertibles are available for purchase, making these little cars quite the hot item. The Mini Australia website indicates that only 39 cars remain.
The exterior of each Nightfall Edition is clad with 17-inch Black Track spoke alloy wheels, behind which hide John Cooper Works sport brakes. The exterior is painted in Piano Black and gets special edition badging, a panoramic sunroof, sun-protective glazing, a cool-looking carbon fiber hood scoop, and carbon fiber tailpipe finishers. The interior of the Nightfall Edition remains relatively unchanged but sees the addition of a John Cooper Works Pro steering wheel, a carbon fiber handbrake, and Piano Black interior accents. These special edition cars are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 228 horsepower and will reach a top speed of 153 mph.
