Mini launches Rolls-Royce inspired special edition

Mini is displaying its Mini Goodwood special edition model at Harrods.

The new model, priced from £41,005, takes inspiration from the design team at Rolls Royce Motor Cars and forms part of a specially created window display.

The dashboard, centre console, air vents, carpets, heated leather seats, roof lining, doors and interior cladding are all finished in Rolls-Royce colour Cornsilk. The dashboard and door handle surfaces are of Walnut Burr, a premium wood trim bespoke to Rolls-Royce.

The roof linings, sun visors and rear storage tray are all made of cashmere, with deep-pile lamb wool used to make the floor mats.

The exterior of the Mini Inspired by Goodwood is finished in the exclusive Rolls-Royce colour diamond black metallic, and the car rides on 17-inch light alloy multi-spoke wheels. It is only available in Mini hatch body style.

Standard equipment includes bi-xenon adaptive headlights, park distance control, automatic air conditioning, an onboard computer, Mini navigation and the Mini radio visual boost audio system, which includes a Harman Kardon hi-fi speaker system.

Inside Harrods, display screens provide information about the car, with a selection of swatches and samples of the interior trims used in the cabin.

A member of staff from Mini’s flagship Park Lane showroom will be on hand so customers can find out more or place an order.

Beside every BMW dealership lies a Mini showroom and although they’ve been busy selling more cars every year since 2009, market share since 2011 hasn’t kept pace.

This is likely to improve in 2015 with the introduction of the first five-door Mini hatchback, whose third generation was launched recently.

It will arrive in showrooms later this year, and while much of its appeal will lay in its driving dynamics, character and quality, it is a much more practical car than the three-door.

More rear legroom and boot space will ensure the Mini hatchback range can be put on the shopping lists of those who want a small car with five doors. The Mini’s huge range of customisation options and accessories should ensure it’s as much of a hit as the three-door model.

The larger Countryman and Paceman will also be revised later this year, which should help maintain their appeal.
