Article by Christian A., on April 30, 2011

This is the MINI ‘Inspired by Goodwood’, a new edition of the popular vehicle characterized by top-grade materials, the highest level of workmanship and stylish supremacy. As expected, the car was built under the guidance of the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars designer team. Still, don’t expect to be as roomy as the Phantom, but do expect some high-quality luxury materials seen only on the latest luxury cars.

As you can see from the photos, the biggest surprise is seen on the interior, where we can find the exclusive Rolls-Royce colour Cornsilk on the dashboard, including the surrounds of the central instrument and the air vents, the centre console, carpet surfaces, the Lounge leather seats, the roof lining as well as the door, side and body pillar cladding.

The dashboard and doorhandle surfaces, which are manufactured in Goodwood and finished in Walnut Burr, the well-known wood quality also exclusive to Rolls-Royce.

The MINI ‘Inspired by Goodwood’ also features 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. Moreover, we find Cashmere roof linings, sun visors and rear storage tray as well as foot mats boasting a deep-pile lambswool quality.

The exterior design is completed by the body finish in the exclusive Rolls-Royce colour Diamond Black metallic and 17-inch light alloy wheels sporting a multi-spoke design.

Under the hood, we find a 1.6-liter 135 kW/184 bhp four-cylinder engine. And this is not all as the MINI ‘Inspired by Goodwood’ also comes as standard with Xenon Adaptive Headlights, Park Distance Control, automatic air conditioning, an onboard computer and the audio system Radio MINI Visual Boost, which includes the Harman Kardon hi-fi speaker system.
