Back in 2006, I was a weird kid. That's why the special Volvo Ocean Race Editions of their cars somehow interested me. Hey, it was an XC70 with a ridiculous navy blue interior bits, which was odd at the time. But the Volvo V60 comes with a map of the world print, so the weirdness continues.
Mini's special edition cars have always been a little silly, but they have a huge parts bin to rummage around in for accessories. However they look, they are actually different. Now they're trying to make their next special car more, um, special, by asking you all which one they should build 56 of.
Special editions of cars can be fun, and they're not a bad way to relatively cheaply target a car at a very specific market.

The Aston Martin DBS and V12 Vantage Carbon Black special editions come with a color coat taking 50 man-hours of hand painting to create. It's the perfect gift for the Aston Martin owner who has everything but meticulous, unnecessary labor.
What do Frank Sinatra, Levi's Jeans and Don Knotts have in common? Special edition cars. When a trend gets too popular and a car company gets too desperate, they find ways to merge the two into a steaming pile of car crap — otherwise known as a trendy special edition.
