The 2012 London Olympics are still a few months away, but MINI is celebrating early with the release of the MINI Baker Street special edition. This new MINI has a sleekly redesigned interior and exterior and gets its name from a famous character from British literature.

The MINI Baker Street gets its name from the street where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes lived. This new MINI won't solve any crimes, but it will get you around London in style. The special edition has a grey and black interior and a sits on a set of 16-inch wheels. A 122hp engine sits under the hood with a six-speed manual transmission standard (automatic is optional). MINI is throwing all of its weight behind the London games and is sure to debut a few more special edition MINIs before the start of the Summer Olympics on July 27th.
