The Mini inspired by Goodwood, combines typical Mini driving fun with discerning craftsmanship, select materials and a styling marked by typical British understatement of the world’s leading producer of luxury automobiles. It’s characterized by top-grade materials, the highest level of workmanship and stylish supremacy. The special edition of the MINI Hardtop was built under the guidance of the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars designer team.

Inside, a harmonious color concept, selected materials and a production quality characterized by precise craftsmanship guarantee the highest degree of well-being and comfort. The dashboard, including the surrounds of the central instrument and the air vents, the center console, carpet surfaces, the Lounge leather seats, the roof lining as well as the door, side and body pillar cladding boast the exclusive Rolls-Royce color Cornsilk.

The dashboard and door handle surfaces are manufactured in Goodwood and finished in Walnut Burr, a wood quality also exclusive to Rolls-Royce. The black nappa leather dashboard top, Tipped Leather Cornsilk door linings as well as Piano Black surface finishes for the buttons on the multifunction steering wheel and the controls below the central instrument all provide additional quality-enhancing accents. The matching black dials for the speedometer and rev counter bear the same typeface as their Rolls-Royce counterparts. Two of the most striking features of the exterior design are the finish in the exclusive Rolls-Royce color Diamond Black metallic and 17-inch wheels sporting a multi-spoke design.

The paint is also used for the mirror caps and roof spoiler. The exclusivity of the special-edition model is also reflected in its body design. The car’s front and rear apron are the same as those found on the Cooper S, but are combined with the bonnet from the Cooper D. There are also high-class aluminum badges stamped with the lettering “MINI INSPIRED BY GOODWOOD” on the side indicator surrounds above the front wheel arches and on the door sills. Another badge, also featuring the legend “One of 1000”, can be found on the centre console in front of the gearshift lever.
