Mini puts Goodwood edition on display at Harrods

From AB
MINI Inspired BY GOODWOOD LIMITED EDITION AT WORLD'S MOST FAMOUS
STORE
The MINI Inspired by Goodwood is the most ambitious and luxurious
special edition model the brand has ever launched. To celebrate
delivery of the first customer cars, a single example is going on
display in prime position at Harrods, the world's most aspirational
shopping destination.
The MINI which takes inspiration from the design team at Rolls Royce
Motor Cars, forms part of a specially created window display. It is
also visible from inside the iconic Knightsbridge store, allowing
shoppers, pedestrians and drivers on the busy Brompton Road to see
it.
The window features a beautiful manor house and gates, providing a
quintessentially British backdrop to showcase the MINI. Inside
Harrods, display screens provide information about the car, with a
selection of swatches and samples of the premium interior trims used
in the cabin. A member of staff from MINI's flagship Park Lane
showroom will be on hand so customers can find out more or even place
an order.
Highlighting the exclusive and limited edition nature of the MINI
Inspired by Goodwood, the MINI logo and the words '1 of 1000' will be
projected on to the pavement outside the window every night. The scene
will be on display for two weeks starting from Easter Sunday, 8
April.
Guy Cheston, Harrods Director of Media Sale commented, "Harrods
is delighted to be showcasing such an iconic British brand. The store
attracts an average of 42,000 visitors every day from over 130
different countries every month. What better place than Harrods to
showcase the most luxurious production MINI has ever built to a truly
global audience."
The MINI Inspired by Goodwood is a special edition model like no
other. Announced at last April's Shanghai Motor Show, it brings
together the unparalleled fun and character of MINI with the
outstanding quality of materials and bespoke workmanship that come as
standard with any Rolls-Royce Motor Car
The dashboard, centre console, air vents, carpets, heated leather
seats, roof lining, doors and interior cladding are all finished in
the exclusive Rolls-Royce colour Cornsilk. The dashboard and door
handle surfaces are of Walnut Burr, a premium wood trim bespoke to
Rolls-Royce.
No expense or attention to detail has been spared on the car. The roof
linings, sun visors and rear storage tray are all made of luxurious
cashmere, with deep-pile lambs wool used to make the floor mats.
Power comes from MINI's acclaimed l.6-litre 135 kW/184 hp
four-cylinder petrol engine with Twin Scroll turbocharger, direct
petrol injection and variable valve control. The unit, which also
powers the MINI Cooper S, is the most efficient in its displacement
class.
The exterior of the MINI Inspired by Goodwood is finished in the
exclusive Rolls-Royce colour Diamond Black metallic, and the car rides
on 17-inch light alloy multi-spoke wheels. It is only available in
MINI Hatch body style.
Standard equipment includes Bi-Xenon Adaptive Headlights, Park
Distance Control, automatic air conditioning, an onboard computer,
MINI Navigation and the MINI Radio Visual Boost audio system, which
includes a Harman Kardon hi-fi speaker system.
The MINI Inspired by Goodwood is priced £41,005 and can be ordered
through official retailers. The price includes a comprehensive
five-year servicing package, MINI TLC.
