Mini Supperleleggera Vision RoadsterMotoring enthusiasts and collectors all around the world gathered at Concours d’Elegance at Italy’s Villa d’Este, to present and view some of the unique one-off, coach-built vehicles on the planet. This gathering was joined by the BMW group and they unveiled the ‘MINI Superleggera vision’. This is the interpretation of an open top, two-seater, which was created in collaboration between MINI and touring Superleggera. Touring Superleggera is the Milan-based traditional coach building house.

The Mini Superleggera boasts of a traditional roadster layout with a long hood and shorter rear deck. At the front, there a pair of traditionally designed Mini headlamps. Also, there a pair of character lines, which make the profile bright. It is designed and elaborately crafted by hand.

The cabin is flooded in aluminium and leather trim, but it is a minimalist design. The whole theme merges more classic roadster characteristics with traditional Mini touches. It is most prominent when looking at the large, thin-rimmed, 3-spoke steering wheel harkens back to old British roadsters.

Louis de Fabribeckers, head of Design of Touring Superleggera said: “MINI and touring both believe that proportions are the key factor of beauty, and share the same values of essentiality and innovation.” Also, he added that, “In this car all unnecessary equipment or decoration is sacrificed, as performance is gained through lightness and efficiency of the bodywork and interior. The Italian touch is in the proportions and the typical waistline.”
