BMW's MINI brand is celebrating its 50th anniversary and has launched a pair of MINI models to commemorate the milestone. Dubbed the 50 Mayfair and the 50 Camden, MINI launched the limited edition models at the marque's 50th birthday party at the United Festival at Silverstone in Great Britain.

The MINI Mayfair is a throwback to the 1982 model of the same name and is available in Hot Chocolate, Pepper White and Midnight Black. No matter the color, the Mayfair is set off by a white roof. The Mayfair also features unique badging celebrating MINI's 50th anniversary and the brand's top-level stereo. The 50 Mayfair package is available on all MINI models - including Cooper, Convertible and Clubman - for one model year starting in September.

The 50 Camden model is named after the UK borough and is available in White Silver metallic, Midnight Black metallic and Blue metallic, all with a contrasting white roof. The Camden's 17-inch wheels are also unique to the model. Like the Mayfair model, the Camden sports a grille-mounted 50th anniversary badge and is available on all MINI configurations.

Despite MINI's U.S. popularity, there are no plans to sell either model on our shores.
