Mini Just Might Offer As Many Unique Customization Options As Ferrari Or McLaren

Mini gives you 10 million ways to make your car unique.

When it comes to colors, some car companies are stingy. You get a few exterior paint options and then a light opr dark interior. That's it. But not Mini. Ordering a new Mini is more akin to ordering an ultra-expensive car like a McLaren or a Ferrari. You have access to various exterior and interior colors, as well as wheels, stripes and accents that will make your car unique. Mini claims that there are over 10 million different combos and that each car is unique. Here are the coolest color combos we found.

For our first car, we started with a two-door Mini Cooper S. The paint color that we selected is called Volcanic Orange. To add some contrast to this bright color, we decided to add the JCW Exterior Package which includes an aero kit, black 17-inch wheels, and a spoiler. For just $100 more we got dual black hood stripes to add to the black motif. If you want, you can also opt for some unique touches like checkered flag mirror caps and side markers, and different interior trim choices. Picking orange paint limited us a bit on our contrasting color choice, but if you go for a more neutral main color you can really open yourself up to some unique color combinations, especially on the Cooper Works models.

For our next color combo we decided to take another two-door Cooper model, but this time we used a John Cooper Works version. This let us use some different interior and exterior options. For a base color, we decided to go with Moonwalk Grey. We had the chance to see this color at a local Mini dealership and fell in love with it. If you are a fan of Audi's Nardo Grey or Ford's Avalanche Grey, this color will look very familiar. Like our Cooper S, we decided to go with some contrasting black wheels, which we think are the perfect way to make any car look sporty. However, this time we added Chili Red hubcaps for a measly $48. JCW models can be fitted with the JCW stripes which are black with red edges.

We added more JCW touches like mirror caps for $200 and black spokes for no extra cost. On the interior, we kept the black, grey, and red motif going with piano black trim, and a Satellite Grey accent line. We finished the exterior off with a carbon fiber hood scoop, black JCW side stripes, and illuminated door sills. We love seeing a car that can be so highly customized at such a low price point. Rather than just pick one off the lot, you can have a fun experience building your perfect Mini from a plethora of options. If you want your car to show off who you are, we suggest you go online and option your perfect Mini.
