If you don’t like the sporty MINI Bayswater, the British manufacturer offers the MINI Baker Street as an alternative. The first visual impact with the car shows a Rooftop Grey metallic exterior paint shade combined with black bonnet stripes and with a new set of 16-inch 6-Star twin-spoke light-alloy wheels painted in high-gloss black.
In addition, the vehicle comes with matching black exterior mirror caps. If you don’t like the color, the MINI Baker Street is offered in the body shades Pepper White and Midnight Black. The MINI Cooper and MINI Cooper D trims comes with a black roof, while “Baker Street” lettering on the side scuttles framing the side indicators points to the exclusive character of this special-edition model.
Inside, the vehicle offers the new seat variant in Cross Check Rooftop Grey light feature a diamond pattern. Moreover, the Cross Check Rooftop Grey light is also used for the surfaces of the cockpit and door trim and it is combined with a Rooftop Grey light Colour Line. The Chrome Line Interior package adds further lustre.
The MINI Baker Street also comes with the Pepper Pack, which brings with it air conditioning, an on-board computer, a leather steering wheel, the Chrome Line Exterior package, front fog lamps, a lighting package and height adjustment for the front passenger seat. The engine variants for the MINI Baker Street spans the MINI One (72 kW/98 hp), MINI Cooper (90 kW/122 hp), MINI One D (66 kW/90 hp) and MINI Cooper D (82 kW/112 hp).
As expected, the engines are offered as standard with a six-speed manual gearbox while the six-speed automatic is offered as an option. Regarding its name, Baker Street is synonymous with the address of a certain fictional hero. It is 125 years since Sherlock Holmes author Arthur Conan Doyle released his first story with the master detective in the title role.
