Video: MINI Goodwood Premier

It’s no secret that MINI knows how to throw a party. Recently, MINI threw a major bash at Pavilion 21 for the German Premier of the MINI Inspired by Goodwood. In this video, MINI SPACE takes us into the action.

    Another tragic example of a pretty face marred by the horrors of collagen injections; stop the madness!  And I am not referring to the car.

    I hate to be anal but….this car has a brake pedal designed for a manual?…just saying!

    My favorite feature? The scoopless hood on a turbo model. But the rest of it?

      So you will actually be ok if the F56 comes without a scoop hood? I don’t get it… For me it’s part of the identity of the Cooper S.

      • Dr Obnxs

        I’m a function dictates form kind of guy. When they went to a front mount IC at the base of the radiator, they should have ditched the scoop. Heck, it’s just the same level of function as the headlight stickers on Nascar cars.

          I agree with Matt completely.  The scoop on the 2nd Gen Ses is just silly.  I still have an R53, but if I were to get a newer S (or JCW), I would look into the possibility of retrofitting a Cooper bonnet/hood onto it.

    love those Euro crowds …
