BMW Group unveiled at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2014 its latest concept car, the MINI Superleggera Vision. To create this adorable sports car, Mini’s design team partnered with Italian bespoke sports-car design company Touring Superleggera.
“The MINI SuperleggeraTM Vision elegantly perpetuates what the Classic Mini started 55 years ago: reduction to the essentials. Its energetic, minimalistic design embodies the dynamic essence of an automobile. At the same time it creates unique emotional beauty in combining the past and future of the automotive industry, i.e. traditional coachwork craftsmanship and modern design styling. It was a pleasure for me to design a concept like this.” says Anders Warming, Head of MINI Design.
The body of the car is mainly constructed from large aluminium panels, with carbon fibre components. Inside, high-end materials such as leather, aluminium and black chrome highlight the clear aesthetics of the interior. Under the hood? All Mini is saying is that this is a hybrid-electric concept. It’s unlike anything the brand has ever done, love the design. Share your opinions in the comments, what do you think of this concept car?
