The Mini by Rolls-Royce

It May Look Like an Average Mini - But Don’t be Fooled

Have Mini gone mad? The ‘Mini Inspired by Goodwood’ has been unveiled at the Shanghai Motor Show with a price tag of up to £50,000.

The Inspired by Goodwood Mini Rolls-Royce
The new limited edition Mini Cooper S Rolls-Royce is set to go on sale in highly limited numbers next year, with just a 1000 of them going on sale worldwide. As well as the luxurious interior, the ‘Mini Rolls’ comes with  exclusive 17” alloy wheels as well as official  Rolls-Royce black metallic paint work.

Using materials manufactured at the Rolls-Royce factory at Goodwood, Burr walnut wood is used for surface finishes in the cabin which is coated with high-quality Rolls-Royce Cornsilk beige while the instrument panel is finished in black leather. The Mini even features Rolls-Royce lettering. But the characteristic little Mini is still there, as beyond the embellished features, is the standard extras of a standard Mini, such as Parking sensors, Xenon headlights and climate control.

A regular 179bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine powers the ‘Mini Rolls’. You would think having so many similarities of a prestige Rolls-Royce; it could at least borrow one its 535bhp V12 engines!
