Custom ordered from the MINI factory, I took delivery of this car December 3, 2008. It's the very last season of production models from 2006, with a build date of October of 2006. With it being the last of the 2006 model year, it's the last year of production that the MINIs were supercharged from the factory, with a BMW motor. Come 2007, MINI went with a Peugot engine and a small turbo to replace the supercharger. Ordered with a "Chrono package," which moves the speedometer from the normal location in the center of the dash console, to above the steering wheel with the tachometer. The interior trim pieces have been color matched from the factory to match the exterior "Chili Red" paint.
