Presented as a virtual 3D hologram, the slippery-looking MINI Vision features elliptical full-LED headlights with daytime running light rings, a hexagonal radiator grille with integrated auxiliary lights, air intakes cut into the front wheel arches, an air-channelling roof spoiler and airflow-optimised wheels and retro-styled mirrors.
Finished in Glamorous Gold paintwork, the most striking part of the Concept is the utilization of ‘organo metal’ for the wheel arch extensions, side skirts, bumper skirts and trim strips running around the vehicle’s waistline. The mouldable material is formed by pressing fibres together into a composite, much like carbon fibre.
Moving inside, the cabin is an attack on the senses thanks to the Driving Experience Control switch that allows the driver to turn the ambient colour scheme of the interior a calm, dynamic or energy-charged shade – including the ‘MINI Disco’ floor, which brings the footwells alive. Is there a problem officer?
Other highlights include the Union flag design elastic fabric straps on the insides of the doors, customizable interior elements with the MINI click system, and the ability to choose either a classic, analogue-style view or a 3D look for the central display.
