Mini Rolls-Royce revealed

This Mini Inspired by Goodwood will be unveiled at the Shanghai motor show next week, and will go on sale in highly limited numbers next spring.

Just 1000 of the Goodwood Minis will be available worldwide using materials manufactured at the Rolls-Royce factory at Goodwood.

As well as an entirely overhauled interior, the cars have unique 17-inch alloy wheels and the option of an exclusive Rolls-Royce black metallic paint finish.

Burr walnut wood is used for surface finishes in the cabin which is coated with high-quality Rolls-Royce Cornsilk beige leather. The upper section of the instrument panel is also finished in black leather, while the dials and rev-counter feature Rolls-Royce lettering.

Beyond the bespoke touches, the Goodwood Mini is fitted with active Xenon headlights, parking sensors, climate control and upgraded Harman Kardon stereo.

While it borrows much from the Rolls-Royce brand, the Goodwood Mini doesnt use the luxury car's V12 engine. A regular 179bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine powers the car.

Prices will be announced later in the year, but you can vote in our poll on the homepage to let Mini know how much you might be prepared to pay for the car.
