Modern British flair with an artistic twist

MINI Asia and MINI Brunei announced the launch of the MINI One Frozen Brass Edition in Brunei yesterday, a special edition inspired by the unique brass work found in various forms of art.

This latest edition is exclusively available in the three-door and five-door variants.

“Historically, brass was revered as a symbol of status in homes and was heavily featured in the 1920s at the beginning of the Art Deco movement,” said Head of MINI Asia Kidd Yam. “As brass has a fascinating history and holds an important place in the design world, the MINI One Frozen Brass Edition was created for those who have an especial appreciation of sleek stylised forms.”

The MINI One Frozen Brass Edition features a host of embellishments that lends an air of impressive exclusivity.

Frozen brass accents in lieu of chrome can be found on the headlight and rear light trims and MINI emblems. The brass colouring can also be found on the door handles, as well as a side wrap inspired by a close-up of the Union Jack.

The exhaust tailpipe is sprayed jet black to contrast with the brass accents, and match with the 17” pedal spoke black wheels with runflat tyres.

On the inside, the MINI One Frozen Brass Edition features a Piano Black interior panel. The Piano Black treatment is also applied on the controls of the sports multi-function steering wheel wrapped in nappa leather.

Features across the refreshed MINI model range are standard as well, including the five-inch digital instrument cluster, as well as the 8.8-inch colour touchscreen display of the central infotainment system.

The three-cylinder petrol engine of the MINI One Frozen Brass Edition draws its power from a capacity of 1.5 litres, with a maximum power output of 102hp and a top torque output of 190Nm. The potent engine features petrol direct injection with a maximum pressure of 350 bar, ensuring that drivers can zip through the ins, outs, and roundabouts of Brunei with effortless flair.

The engine has been developed for optimised fuel consumption and emissions so as to be able to comply with the more rigorous exhaust emission standards of the future.

The MINI One Frozen Brass Edition is available for viewing at the MINI Brunei showroom.
