    The only pink mini that I know of, is in Vancouver. I can't find any back story, but I think it was part of a promotion.

    Someone in Hawaii owns a Cooper painted in aftermarket hot Pink Metallic with white roof. The pics were posted in NAM last year and the paint job was excellent…the paint look factory finish.

    Pink is not my cup of tea, but a metallic pink paint finish would look really nice in a Cooper as demonstrated in that Hawaiian MINI.

  • it was ten thousand English Pounds or about $18,000.

  • There's a pink MINI in Vegas. Owned and driven by Penn Jillette (of magicians/comedians Penn & Teller fame). Maybe not a light pink as the photos above on the vanc site, but it is officially “stripper pink”. I've heard all of Penn's vehicles are that color.

    I have a pink mini that I am trying to sell. It was rebuilt in 2002 so is in pretty good condition. I don’t expect to get £10,000 for it though! Maybe closer to £2,000. It is shocking pink with black trim.

  • kathryn

    I have a pink mini too!!! Its a Classic 1987 Austin Mini that used to be white but i had it sprayed pink!!! i love it!! its got pink seat covers too!! have been offerd £10k to sell it!!!

  • I thought I commented over here before but I don’t see that I did. I’m a pink Mini owner as well. I’ve got the new Mini and she’s a beauty. 4 candy coats with tons of metal flake. She’s like a pink shiney disco ball and prettier than a grandma dressed in her best sparkly clothes! Yay for pink Minis. PS no it’s not cheap to paint one pink, especially if you do it right.
