MINI Seven Is On Its Way To Goodwood Festival Of Speed

With a name that pays tribute to the 1959 Austin Seven, MINI’s Seven special edition will make its global premiere at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

It will join the current MINI Hatch range in two body styles, 3-door and 5-door, with a tweaked exterior that counts large badges, exclusive bonnet stripes, 17-inch standard or 18-inch optional wheels and a selection of four exterior colors, joined by the contrasting side mirror caps and roof.

The special edition also features a bespoke optional pack, called MINI Seven Chili, and it’s equipped with sports seats, panoramic sunroof, 6.5-inch infotainment system, premium Harmon/Kardon audio and Comfort Access, among others.

Along with the MINI Seven, the British manufacturer will introduce the new John Cooper Works Challenge Edition as well, which will tackle the 1.16-mile (1.87 km) Hillclimb course in the First Glance category, at the same automotive festival. During the event, the automaker will present racer Charlie Butler-Henderson as its newest brand ambassador and will have Harry Hunt, MINI UK Motorsport ambassador and racing driver, on hand to drive the ALL4 Racing car, in which he finished 10th in this year’s Dakar Rally.

BMW and MINI will continue the centenary celebrations at this year’s Goodwood, and the latter will also showcase the Vision Vehicle, “created through partnerships with three pioneering experts in the fields of design, art and interactivity“, as the brand explains. The event will take place between June 23 and 26.
