Mini Inspired by Goodwood

The Shanghai Motor Show was never an important venue for car manufacturers, but lately more and more automakers have brought their latest offerings to the Chinese market, increasing the importance of this automotive event. Later on this month we are going to see a lot of cool cars, here are just a few examples: BMW M5 Concept, Audi Q3, Mercedes A-Class Concept, Subaru XV, along with the new Chevrolet Malibu and the Buick Envision crossover. Of course, Mini will be there too.

They will bring the Goodwood show car in Shanghai and for this occasion they’ve revealed this teaser image. The car is the result of a joint venture between Mini and Rolls-Royce and its official name is “Mini Inspired by Goodwood”. We’ll probably see a Mini exterior and a Rolls-Royce interior. Price tag? Probably something in between.

More information should be out in the following period. Stay tuned.
