With all the iterations of the mini as of late, I tend to cringe when I hear news of any additions to the family. Once I finished perusing the gallery and reading the release I was ready to change my tune. Both classic and modern, minimalist yet silky smooth, the idea of this little thing is growing on me quickly.

This exclusive interpretation of an open-top two-seater was created by MINI and Touring Superleggera, the tradition-steeped design and coach building house based in Milan. The MINI Superleggera™ Vision is on the one hand a classic roadster, a compact and agile two-seater, expressing the most minimalist and emotional style of motoring; and on the other hand its electric drivetrain gives the car distinctly modern driving dynamics. In collaboration with MINI, Touring Superleggera™ has designed and built an elaborately crafted, unique model which blends the tradition of classic coachwork construction with the MINI’s authentic British styling to create timeless aesthetic appeal.

High-end materials including leather, aluminum, and black chrome go very well with an iconic design reminiscent of speed racer and Astons of old. I’m looking forward to what Touring Superleggera and the BMW group can do together. Have a look and read more at the link below.
