The MINI Highgate edition is the third MINI released in as many weeks that pays tribute to a London neighborhood. Like the Baker Street and Bayswater before it, the Highgate edition is merely a cosmetic upgrade dedicated to instilling some English pride during the run up to the 2012 London Olympics.

The MINI Highgate edition differs from its aforementioned counterparts in that it is a convertible. The package includes 17-inch wheels inspired by the Union Jack, special Lounge Leather seats with dark truffle and light contrast stitching and a ton of Highgate badging. The MINI Highgate package is available on all convertible models (S through SD) and starts at $33,000. The Olympics are still many months away which means that MINI has time to release many more special editions. There has never been a better time to drive British.
