Impulsive purchases aside online shopping is a lot of fun. Especially when you can book a very exclusive, limited edition MINI online. Called MINI Cooper S Carbon Edition, the car is available to book only on Amazon (on Amazon.in/MINI), has a lot of John Cooper Works bits, and we can’t think of anything else to offer as much instant gratification in Amazon India’s catalogue.
Priced at Rs 39.9 lakh onwards, the MINI Cooper S Carbon Edition includes a JCW Tuning Kit, JCW accessories, and everything the MINI Cooper S gets. That includes the twin-turbocharged 2-litre engine, which in said trim, makes 210 bhp and 30.59 kgm. It manages 0-100 kph in 6.5 seconds, comes with 205 mm wide tyres, and boasts the same ‘go-kart’ handling that makes everyone fall in love with it.
There are two trims: standard — you can hardly call it that, especially with the extras available — and one with Wired Package. The latter is about Rs 1.6 lakh more expensive. There are twenty such examples on sale, all of which are exclusively available at Amazon India’s website. The website also mentions of an easier way to own it: at Rs 1,444 per day including an 8.75 per cent interest.
Don’t spend too much time calculating that because there are just 20 of these. And if the smartphone-yielding bunch of people with good taste have seen it, chances are these will soon be sold out…
