It’s always a sad day when we see a great MINI colors cease production. Today we’re mourning the loss of two of our favorites (and one that was only around for one model year).

After just a year MINI is bidding farewell to Emerald Green on all models. It’s being phased out entirely and will likely end up being one of the shortest lived colors ever offered. Which is a tragedy given how incredible it looks in person and on a MINI. It’s likely MINI decided to end Emerald Green due to the introduction of Sage Green on the Countryman (which means we may see that color filter into other products).

After a six year run MINI is also eliminating Melting Silver as a body-color option on all MINIs. Introduced at the lunch of the current Clubman, Melting Silver offered a buyers something different than the standard silver or grey with warmer tones. It is worth mentioning that MINI will continue to offer Melting Silver Roof and Mirror caps on the MINI Clubman and MINI Countryman.
