Tom Rawlings, the sales manager of Dales SEAT in Cornwall, fancied doing “something different”, so took a three-door Mii in Deep Black metallic and had a pink vinyl wrap applied to its bodywork and tinting film on its headlamps and tail lights, prompting a Twitter fan to christen it ‘Miinx’.
Being based on a Sport model, its specification includes the 55 kw (75 hp) 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine, 15-inch alloy wheels, sports suspension, air conditioning, front fog lamps, tinted rear glass and a leather trimmed steering wheel and gear knob.
“We’ve been absolutely overwhelmed by the response to the special edition since we launched it. From the day we first parked it outside our showroom, people have made a point of coming in to tell us what they think,” said Tom.
Now available to buy, pricing starts at £11,500, with Dales promising to donate £100 to the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity for each car sold.
