Probably the finest small car of all time was on display at the Shanghai trade fair in April 2011.

The steering wheel shines in piano lacquer, and the dashboard is emblazoned with Walknappa. One of 1000 mini special models is available for 50,000 euros.

B.MW is putting its British daughters together: for the special model "Inspired by Goodwood" That’s why Mini exchanged ideas with Rolls-Royce for the first time and put a luxury planer on the wheels based on the Cooper S. The three-door, which celebrates its world premiere before Easter at the auto show in Shanghai and will be available for sale within a year with an edition of 1,000, is pretty much the finest small car of all time.

Painted in Diamond Black Metallic, which is also used on the Phantom, the inside was completely redesigned with the help of artisans from the Rolls-Royce factory in Goodwood. The predominant color of the design by Rolls-Royce Head of Design Alan Sheppard is cornsilk, the seats and doors are covered with soft leather, the buttons on the steering wheel shine in piano lacquer, the particularly elegant soft nappa is emblazoned on the dashboard, and you can see fine walnut veneer everywhere, specially made in Goodwood for the Mini were milled. The two dissimilar sisters even worked on the instruments. The dials are now painted black and use the same fonts as in Ghost and Phantom.

Technically, however, nothing has changed on the Mini. With the Bavarian passport, the British have put pretty much everything in the special model, from the xenon headlights to the navigation system, that the surcharge list gives. But they turned their hands off the V12 engine that is so typical of a Rolls-Royce. With a car that is shorter than the front fender of a Phantom Coupe over its entire length, that would have created serious space problems. Instead, the Rolls-Royce among the Minis drives with the well-known engine of the Cooper S, which draws 184 hp from 1.6 liters and is good for a good 220 km / h. However, this time it is not quite as thick and uses the hood of the diesel. So it does without the distinctive ventilation hood and therefore looks a bit more distinguished.

Designed by Rolls-Royce in Goodwood and built by Mini in Oxford, however, the small luxury planer has a proud price: the special series is expected to cost 46,900 euros. That’s three times more than for the base model, twice the price of a Mini Cooper S and more than what you pay for a well-equipped five-man Touring at BMW. But hardly any other group of buyers endures such a brazen pricing policy as painlessly as that of Mini – it is not for nothing that Mini customers traditionally even book more extras than those who buy a three-seater BMW.
