Mini Offers Multitone Editions With Unique Roof Design

The three Mini Multitone Editions -- Sage Green 3-door, Indian Summer Red Clubman wagon, and Sage Green 5-doorNo one does roofs like Mini. The British icon (yes, it’s German-owned. Stop stepping on the fun) will sell you a contrast-color roof, a roof with a Union Jack on it, or now, a one-of-a-kind “multitone” roof. The custom tops are part of a new, limited-run Multitone Edition of the 3- and 5-door Mini Hardtop and the Clubman wagon.

While Mini says it will build a limited number of each, it hasn’t revealed how limited. Nor has it given pricing info.

What the company has explained is the paint process, which makes each roof unique. Each is white in the front (Mini calls it Aspen White), silver in the middle (Melting Silver II), and Jet Black in the rear. But Mini applies the paint in many coats without waiting for them to dry. “Due to changing environmental conditions, deviations in the colour pattern may occur, making each MINI Multitone Edition vehicle unique,” Mini says.

The company then applies the same six curving stripes in gray to each.

The 3- and 5-door hardtop Multitone Editions will be sold only in Sage Green. Clubman wagons come only in Indian Summer Red. All get white mirror caps, a white fuel filler door, white door handles, and a cool white trim around the headlights.

Inside, the six-stripe pattern marks the dashboard.

There are no mechanical upgrades to the Multitone Edition. But it’s a cute look, which is what most buyers want in a Mini. We await pricing to decide whether it’s a truly good buy, but the idea of a paint job no other car shares is the kind of fun we want from Britain’s (stop it) spunky little favorite.
