Mini Reserves Frozen Black Metallic for Top-of-the-Line Models

Limited Edition / 28 Comments

Exclusive new color can be ordered with Mini’s Countryman and Paceman models.

An exclusive new exterior paint finish is now available as a limited edition color for the range-topping Mini Countryman and Paceman models. With a textured, shimmering matte finish, the Frozen Black metallic paint can be applied to the Cooper S and SD Countryman, Cooper S and SD Paceman, Cooper Works Countryman and John Cooper Works Paceman. Austrian production partner Magna Steyr have been tasked with the special surface treatment.

This includes a base layer for grip and corrosion protection, a color layer, and a clear lacquer finish containing silicates for a matte finish and velvet effect. The labor intensive process, which involves finishing attached exterior parts such as mirror caps and front apron separately, means the exclusive body color must be strictly limited. German customers will have to pay 2,100 Euros to have their Mini finished in the Frozen Black metallic paintwork.
