A MINI Rolls-Royce?

Photoshopping can produce interesting results:
 
 
 
But that's not what this is about.
 
There is a 'MINI' Rolls-Royce out there - well, sort of...
 
Back in the seventies the coolest city car was a Wood & Picket Margrave Mini. Rolls-Royce paint, highly polished lacquered wood and Connolly leather - at a price.
 
 
 
Today's equivalent is the Aston Martin Cygnet.
 
 
 Or rather, WAS.
 
Now there's a special run of 1,000 new BMW MINIs with similar treatment. Even down to the lambswool carpet overlays.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
"The exclusive special edition MINI INSPIRED BY GOODWOOD was created by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars' chief interior designer Alan Sheppard, at the Iconic British marque's Goodwood home. With a limited production run of just 1000 and drawing on materials utilised in the craftsmanship of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, this is the most luxurious and elegant MINI yet."
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Who would have thought we'd show MINIs on Bentleyspotting...?
 
I like it.
