BMW’s MINI is one of those cars that has had plenty of special editions, and this latest one is exclusively for the Japanese market. Called MINI Savile Row, it’s darker than dark with a black paintjob and a black roof, which highlights the polished chrome 17-inch wheels, fuel flap, mirrors and other trim. Definitely unique and classy (or sombre, depending on how you look at it) compared to the most of the cheery coloured MINIs running around.

Other goodies include privacy glass, bi-xenons, white turn signal lamps and an anthracite headliner, which guarantees an equally dark cabin. Only 100 units will be made available for those trendy Ginza types, all in Cooper spec with a 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine and automatic transmission. The cost? ¥3,100,000 or $35,028, a premium of about $4,500 over the standard Cooper.
