Japanese-market Mini Saville Row – Click above for high-res image gallery

Black is the new black, at least when it comes to the special edition Mini Saville Row for the Japanese market. The black-as-deep-space hatch with the black roof is accented by polished chrome 17-inch wheels, gas cap, mirrors and trim outside and in. Privacy glass, bi-xenon headlights, white turn signal lamps and an anthracite headliner have been thrown into the mix as well. There will be 100 made, all with the 1.6-liter four-cylinder and automatic transmissions, costing ¥3,100,000 ($35,028 U.S.). That's a premium of about ¥400,000 ($4,519 U.S.) over the standard Mini.

There will be just 20 examples built of the even more limited edition BMW X6 Performance Unlimited, also for the Japanese market only. Inspired by BMW motorsports, the crossover gets a twin-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder with hybrid technology running through an eight-speed automatic transmission. The body receives silver pearl paint, a BMW Performance aero package, 21-inch alloys and a blacked-out grille, the interior gets Dakota leather and brushed aluminum pedals. It retails for a tidy ¥9,450,000 ($106,823 U.S.). You check it out, along with the Mini Saville Row, in the high-res galleries below.

      BTW, the X6 photo is NOT hi-res. Just saying...

        Not compared what the rest of the world pays for nicely equipped cars- 30k Euro for a Golf is common.
        I don't think you can have a JDM market vehicle, if you're not a Japanese auto maker. Shouldn't it be JIM?

      Cute, but the lack of a manual transmission is a downer.

        you sure you wanna drive a manual in japan?

      If that drivetrain is bespoke to only the X6 Performance Unlimited, I'm impressed. IMO, this is how limited editions should be, something more than a new color/rims/interior. As for the Mini, I wonder how long it takes before Mini owners start importing their "JDM" parts & get into the JDM scene. "It's JDM tight yo!" :P

      Turn that regular chrome into black chrome and you got yourself a deal.

      How can an imported car be JDM?

      Don't you mean "Japan-only"?
