Mini United 2009 attracts 25,000 fans

Over 25,000 Mini Cooper fans made the trip to Silverstone at the weekend to be a part of the Mini United 2009 festival.

Visitors from 40 countries assembled in the sun at the venue and enjoyed live performances from the likes of Paul Weller and Calvin Harris.

Meanwhile, they also got to witness fascinating car displays and stunt driving, alongside Mini challenge racing.

Furthermore, three special edition models were unveiled, one of which was the Mini 50 Mayfair.

Among the highlights of the car are the toffee-coloured leather seats, which match the knee-roll below the dashboard, the gearstick knob and the inlay on the lower section of the steering wheel.

The car also has extra headlights situated on the radiator grille on the outside, with motorists given the choice of two metallic finishes – either Hot Chocolate or Midnight Black.

Mini United 2009 ran over three days between May 22nd and 24th and was organised as a celebration to mark the 50th anniversary of the vehicle.
