'MINI has expanded its range of roof decals with the addition of five new roof designs. ‘Camouflage’, ‘zip’, ‘stripes’, ‘tartan’ and ‘tiger’ take the total number of MINI roof decals available to 25.

All five new roof decals will be displayed for the first time at Motor Show Live at the Birmingham NEC from 25th May – 6th June.'

Trevor Houghton-Berry, General Manager UK said, “Since MINI was launched in 2001, we have seen MINI owners embrace the opportunity to personalise their cars. There are almost 50,000 ways of specifying a MINI and the introduction of five new roof decals has further expanded that choice”.

Three MINI facts:

  • The most popular roof decal in the UK and the USA is the Union Jack.
  • Due to the enormous choice of options and accessories available for MINI only two in every 100,000 MINIs produced at Plant Oxford are likely to be exactly the same. Statistically this means that only two of the 100,000 MINIs registered in the UK will be identical.
  • Over 99 per cent of MINI owners have added additional specification to their cars ranging from the fitting of John Cooper Works kits to the addition of bonnet stripes.

There's currently no word on US availability but it's worth noting that there are already several designs that are out in the UK that MINIUSA doesn't offer. With that in mind it may be sometime until the US sees these flags.
