MINI Brings Back Ice Blue with Special Edition

MINI USA is bringing back one of its most popular colors of all time – Ice Blue. The color is bring brought back for only a few weeks of production and will be limited to no more than 500 units total.

In many ways this another stab by MINI USA to put interesting, well composed (and well priced) cars on dealer lots. While the Gulf livery might be a bit much for some, we for one love the idea of this being in showrooms and on the roads. We also applaud the return of Ice Blue – one of all our time favorite colors. Now lets see if they can get Indie Blue back.

The package is also exclusive to the F56 two door hatch Cooper and Cooper S models. The special run will incorporate a number of popular options and a few accessories.

Ice Blue Exterior Paint Color: This quintessential British color, available for the first time on the current generation of the MINI 2-Door Hardtop, remains a highly sought after exterior color by existing MINI Owners.

Unique Accessories: Ice Blue Wheel Centre Caps for the Ice Blue Cooper 2-Door Hardtop. Bright Orange Wheel Centre Caps, Mirror Caps and a specially designed side stripe for the Ice Blue Cooper S.

Panoramic Sunroof: The expansive dual-pane sunroof, are a standard offering for both derivatives of the Ice Blue 2 Door Hardtop. 6-Speed Steptronic Automatic Transmission: The Automatic Transmission is standard on the Cooper Variant of the Ice Blue. The Cooper S comes standard with the Manual Transmission, with an optional Automatic Transmission (205) available.

Priced at 24,950 and 29,450 respectively, the Ice Blue special edition also represents a decent value. Now for the bad news. To streamline production MINI is only allowing a few extra options listed below.

  • Chilly

    Ice Blue and Bright Orange, what an awful color combination!

    • Porthos1984

      Comes back to the Gulf Oil livery.

  • Porthos1984

    The fact that it comes with a dual pane sunroof, I am no longer interested.

  • Patrick Cray

    Any word on when this will become available? I can’t find it on the MINI website

      I had an 06 Royal Gray too (got totalled before it was a year old. 🙁 ) Royal Gray and Indi Blue were the best MINI colors of all time…all time!
