The German car tuning firm Arden has customized the Mini Cooper Equipe for the 40th anniversary of the Equipe model. Naming it the Mini Equipe 2009, the special edition features a few exterior styling upgrades. A chrome grille was fitted on the front, and a stainless steel mesh insert was placed in the rear bumper. The revised exterior includes aluminum 18 inch wheels with an interesting 9-spoke design. Inside the Mini Cooper Equipe is a sharp two-tone color scheme with hand stitched leather seats, dashboard, and steering wheel. Arden also added equipment and tuning to the engine to increase the performance numbers.
