[pictobrowser motoringfile 72157618701243245]

The ultra limited edition is set to get a 250 unit production bump bring the total made to 500. According to several sources MINI is doubling production due to more demand than originally expected from mainland Europe among other places.

It’s also been made clear to us that the US market is almost certainly not getting the car due to pricing issues.
