Of all the special editions that MINI is dropping today, none look better to our eyes than the MINI Resolute Edition for the the F55, F56 and F57. Starting with Rebel Green (previously exclusive to JCWs) the Resolute Edition takes traditional MINI cues and reimagines them with bronze trim, unique bonnet stripes and wheels.
Mechanically identical to normal MINI models, the MINI Resolute Edition brings a more modern aesthetic to the typical color and trim special editions we’ve seen in the past while nodding to vintage MINIs. Looking a lot like the gorgeous (and ultra rare) special edition WC50, the Resolute Edition features the classic look of dark green and off-white.
The stripes are actually made up of five individual stripes and reflect light. Coupled with the bronze and black wheels the Resolute Edition is nothing if not striking.
Inside things are no less interesting with sport seats finished in Black Pearl / Light Chequered fabric/leatherette with black trim. Parallel lines in a light shade of gold form a pattern on the black background of the surfaces. The lightning package provide targeted interior illumination, as well as with the Ambient Light, which also includes a laser-engraved ring for the central instrument, light piping in the doors and cockpit area as well as illuminated door handles and door entry areas.

The MINI Resolute Edition: Pure driving joy, unparalleled charisma.
As the original in the premium small car segment, the MINI combines a thrilling drive with an unconventional appeal that is attractive to different target groups, characterized by its hallmark design and modern premium character. This is why the MINI enjoys a unique position in this competitive environment. The MINI Hardtop 2 Door with its classic body concept, just like the MINI 5 door with its extended functionality, stands for experience-oriented urban mobility in the 21st century. The true MINI feeling is made up of Joie de vivre and openness. And this now also applies to the world of electric mobility. The MINI Cooper SE combines the style of the original with locally emission-free driving fun. In addition, the MINI Convertible complements the brand’s unmistakable appearance with a particularly extravagant, youthfully fresh look.
The Resolute Edition is available for the MINI Cooper S Hardtop 2 Door, the MINI Cooper S Hardtop 4 Door. It is also available in conjunction with the all-electric MINI Cooper SE. Customers can enjoy open-top driving pleasure in exclusive Resolute Edition style in the MINI Cooper S Convertible.
Appealing design features and color combinations.
The exclusive design and equipment features of the Resolute Edition reinforce the hallmark characteristics of the MINI models and combine them with modern, high- quality design accentuations. The Rebel Green exterior signals pure sportiness – a color that was previously reserved exclusively for the top athlete MINI John Cooper Works. The color is combined with a Pepper White roof finish and Pepper White exterior mirror caps for the MINI Hardtop 2 Door and MINI Hardtop 4 Door. On the MINI Convertible Resolute Edition, the electrically operated soft top and the exterior mirror caps are finished in black.
Hallmark design features are finished in exclusive Resolute Bronze. This includes the headlight surrounds, the radiator grille and rear lights, the side scuttles on the front side panels, the handles of the doors and tailgate and, the air intakes in the front apron and the fuel filler cap. The brand logos and model lettering provide an attractive contrast, as do the inner frame of the radiator grille, the tailpipe trim of the exhaust system and the horizontal radiator grille strut in Piano Black. On the MINI Hardtop 2 Door and the MINI Hardtop 4 Door in the Resolute Edition, there is also a black strip running around the lower edge of the windows.
Both the bonnet stripes and the door sills of the edition vehicles feature a pattern of parallel lines with a color gradient between a light and a dark shade of gold as well as the lettering “RESOLUTE”. The asymmetrical design gives them a particularly high- quality and unconventional look in hallmark MINI style. The sporty appearance of the edition vehicles is completed by 18-inch alloy wheels in Pulse Spoke Black design. The MINI Cooper SE features 17-inch alloy wheels in Electric Collection Spoke design.
The exclusive flair of the interior of the edition vehicles is enhanced by sports seats in Black Pearl / Light Chequered fabric/leatherette, which are combined with black armrests and knee rolls. This color scheme is a perfect complement to the Rebel Green paint finish and the black and bronze exterior design features. The Nappa sports leather steering wheel features an edition emblem on the lower spoke, and the roof liner of the MINI Hardtop 2 Door and MINI Hardtop 4 Door models is in anthracite.
The interior surfaces created especially for the Resolute Edition emphasize the cars’ premium style. Parallel and evenly curved lines in a light shade of gold form a noble pinstripe pattern on the black background of the surfaces. At the same time, they pick up on the structure of the bonnet stripes. The specific design features are staged with the help of the lighting package, whose LED units provide targeted interior illumination, as well as with the Ambient Light, which also includes a laser-engraved ring for the central instrument, light piping in the doors and cockpit area as well as illuminated door handles and door entry areas. In addition, the MINI Driving Modes are part of the equipment package for the Resolute Edition.
The Resolute Edition’s exclusive design features make up a carefully crafted package for premium exterior and interior style. They also tie in particularly harmoniously with the clear and purist MINI design language. In the interior, the classic sporty flair of the colors and materials is combined with advanced digital technology. The latest generation of the MINI operating system optimizes the quick and intuitive control of vehicle functions, audio program, communication, navigation, and apps. Live widgets on the 8.8-inch touch display of the central instrument are used to activate the desired menu item, which can be selected with a swiping motion like that on a smartphone.
