We have to say it does look rather good on the MINI Paceman above
MINI have introduced ‘Frozen Black’ as a limited edition paint finish for the MINI Countryman and Paceman models.
The matt ‘Frozen Black’ metallic finish is labour intensive and for the moment is only available at MINI’s production partner Magna Steyr in Graz where the MINI Paceman and MINI Countryman are produced. The special surface treatment encompasses the base layer for grip and corrosion protection, the colour layer as well as the clear lacquer finish which has added silicates to create the matted impression as well as the velvet effect which can be seen and felt.
The ‘Frozen Black’ finish does require some special care as spot cleaning of the surface using wax or polish can leave an unwanted gloss effect. Although the paint is the same as the other paint finishes in terms of abrasion resistance and colour fidelity. MINI has introduced special care products developed specially for treating the Frozen Black metallic paint finish.
