Mini Paddy Hopkirk Edition Launched- Priced At Rs 41.70 Lakh (Ex-showroom)
The limited edition of the Mini Paddy Hopkirk was launched for Rs 41.70 lakh (ex-showroom). The Paddy Hopkirk Version, based on the 3-Door Cooper S, honored the Brand’s victory with Irish driver Patrick Hopkirk behind the wheel at the Monte-Carlo Rally in 1964.
The Paddy Hopkirk Version costs Rs 6.6 lakh more than the regular 3-door Mini Cooper S, priced at Rs 41.70, but the additional premium would not include the edition-specific styling parts but get an extra package over the standard heat hatchback.
The Paddy Hopkirk Version comes in Chilli Red color with white finished roof contrast and black finished mirror covers. The cap features a white offset race strip featuring Hopkirk’s logo and characters ’33EJB’ the 1964 Mini rally winning number plate from Monte Carlo. The doors have no. 37 bolts – the number of cars in Hopkirk. The logo of Hopkin is also along the back of the tailgate.
The color specifics (option on regular Cooper S) are also darkened to add a sporty appearance.
The interior of the cabin is painted with black leatherette tiles with a black piano trim and features the logo of Hopkirk on the dash and lighting onto the plates.
In the Mini Paddy Hopkirk, standard equipment is added in the form of a back view camera, a sunroof, keyless input, and a John Cooper Works steering wheel – paying features on the basic mini, in addition to standard Cooper S. Other on-site kits include auto LED headlights, rain sensor wipers, rear parking sensors, auto air conditioning control, ambient lighting, stability monitor, ABS and more.
Like the Cooper S standard, the 192hp and 280Nm, a 2,0-liter turbo-petrol engine power the Paddy Hopkirk Version. Power is transferred to the front wheels through the 7-speed Steptronic Sport dual-clutch Mini gearbox – an option available on the Cooper S standard.
Only Mini’s online shopping site will make reservations for the Mini Paddy Hopkirk version. Like other Minis, the Paddy Hopkirk Version is a CBU import selling only 15 units in India.
Mini’s Iconic hatchback is currently being retailed in India in its three-door and open-top convertible body versions, all available in Cooper Spec petrol. The three-door system is also available in a John Cooper Works spec with more results. Besides Mini’s India hatchback, there is also a bigger crossover for Countrymen and a club man, all in Cooper Exclusive oil.
