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.

Mini UK

Mini recorded record sales in the UK in 2014 with orders totalling 53,661 units.

Growth was relatively sedate, at 3.3%, but still represents a new record and the market share of 2.17% is the highest for the brand anywhere in the world, despite recent decline as the market has become more fragmented.

The 3-door hatch is the brand's biggest seller, but the new new five-door has yet to have a full year in the market.

Mini is working hard to educate future buyers that Mini is more than a single model, with products in every major segment, including the all-important SUV offering.
