MINI Baker Street embodies the trend-setting style of the brand

Article by Christian A., on January 20, 2012

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.

Mini Baker Street

New exterior and interior design details developed exclusively for the MINI Baker Street mark out this special-edition model. The Rooftop Grey metallic exterior paint shade combines with special bonnet stripes whose basic colour black is given extra character by a subtle V-shape design. 16-inch 6-Star twin-spoke light-alloy wheels painted in high-gloss black along with matching black exterior mirror caps present an attractive contrast to the bold, contemporary appearance of the new exterior paintwork.

The MINI Baker Street can also be ordered as an option in the body shades Pepper White and Midnight Black. In MINI Cooper and MINI Cooper D trim the roof is painted black, while "Baker Street" lettering on the side scuttles framing the side indicators points to the exclusive character of this special-edition model.

In the interior a fresh interpretation of the cloth/leather seats available for the standard MINI teams up with exclusive interior surfaces to create an unmistakable ambience. In traditional British style, the surfaces of the new seat variant in Cross Check Rooftop Grey light feature a diamond pattern. Cross Check Rooftop Grey light is also used for the surfaces of the cockpit and door trim and is combined with a Rooftop Grey light Colour Line. Light grey contrast stitching for the floor mats, gearshift/selector lever as well as the handbrake gaiters and seat tags which, like the door sills, bear "Baker Street" lettering, round off the array of bespoke interior features. The Chrome Line Interior package adds further lustre.

The equipment list for the MINI Baker Street also includes the Pepper Pack, which brings with it air conditioning, an on-board computer, a leather steering wheel, the Chrome Line Exterior package, front foglamps, a lighting package and height adjustment for the front passenger seat. The range of optional equipment, meanwhile, offers a host of other items with which customers can tailor their car to their personal requirements. The range of available 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). All the engines channel their power through a six-speed manual gearbox as standard or an optional six-speed automatic.

For visitors to London and locals alike, the MINI Baker Street's name will be 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. Today, the Sherlock Holmes Museum and Madame Tussauds waxworks museum can both be found just a stone's throw from Baker Street underground station.
