Mini launches 'Inspired by Goodwood'Thu, 21 Jul 2011 00:00:00 -0700
Mini has just held a launch party in Germany for the new ‘Mini inspired by Goodwood'.
Unveiled at Pavillon 21 Mini Opera Space, a temporary mobile performance venue located on the Marstallplatz in Munich, the new trim level was developed by designers working in both the Mini and Rolls-Royce design studios.
Finished in a cornsilk beige hue (a color typical of Roll-Royce interiors), the Mini Inspired by Goodwood's cabin exudes an air of sophistication found on premium, luxury products – right down to the lamb's wool carpeting. Only 1000 models will be built.
Check out the video to the left for more detail on the new trim level. And if you can sit through the self-congratulatory lead-in and overzealous host's superfluous rhetoric, there's an interview with the affable Anders Warming, Mini's new Design Director, on the other end.
