The original Mini was an immensely popular car in Japan, and the new one seems to be doing well in its position as a “premium” compact car. To help generate excitement after 4 years of the same body style, MINI is launching the Saville Row edition, which, ironically, is only available in Japan.

Sporting a deep black paint scheme, chrome wheels, gas cap and mirrors, the Saville Row uses the standard 1.6L four-cylinder engine and an automatic transmission to put power to the ground. Other features include  bi-xenon headlights, white turn signal lamps , privacy glass and an anthracite headliner. The Saville Row will be limited to 100 units and retail for a hefty $35,000.

Also available is the BMW X6 Performance Unlimited, which features a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder running through an eight-speed automatic transmission. With 21″ wheels, a special aerokit, and a blacked out grille, the X6 looks mean outside, while you the driver stay swaddled in Dakota Leather and special aluminum pedals.
