MINI Design at the Festival of Speed 2018. One-off car auctioned for a good cause.

At this year’s edition of the Festival of Speed (FoS) in Goodwood, taking place on 12 – 15 July, a quite unique MINI will be offered for auction. The one-off model was created by Oliver Heilmer, Head of MINI Design, and his team for the wedding a few weeks ago of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex – and presented to one of the couple’s chosen charities, the non-profit organization Children’s HIV Association (CHIVA).

Munich/Goodwood. For a quarter of a century, Goodwood in southern England has hosted one of the most inspirational and accessible events on the global motor sport calendar. At this year’s edition of the Festival of Speed (FoS), taking place on 12 – 15 July, a quite unique MINI will be offered for auction. The one-off model was created by Oliver Heilmer, Head of MINI Design, and his team for the wedding a few weeks ago of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex – and presented to one of the couple’s chosen charities, the non-profit organization Children’s HIV Association (CHIVA). The exclusive MINI 3 door will go up for auction on 13 July.

A host of details dedicated to the happy couple ensure the MINI is a genuine one-off. The roof graphic, for example, is essentially an amalgamation of the US and UK national flags. And when you open the driver’s and front passenger doors, an exclusive “Just Married” welcome message appears on the ground outside. “We’re delighted that CHIVA is getting the chance to auction this special MINI at the Goodwood Festival of Speed,” says Heilmer. “We’re crossing our fingers it raises as much money as possible for this great cause.”

MINI concept cars at the Festival of Speed.
Every year, the Goodwood Festival of Speed gives vehicles from different eras the opportunity to strut their stuff – from pre-war models to modern-day Formula One racers. The event is all about speed (as the name implies) and visitors enjoy an up-close experience of the racing cars on show. One highlight is the open access to the paddock throughout the Festival of Speed and the interaction between visitors and racing personalities of greater and lesser fame. The 2018 edition of the FoS also sees MINI presenting two design studies: the MINI Electric Concept and MINI John Cooper Works GP Concept, which were unveiled for the first time at last year’s International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt.

The MINI Electric Concept & MINI John Cooper Works GP Concept.
The MINI Electric Concept is surging into the future on a wave of innovation. The design study offers an early taster both of MINI’s first fully-electric model (scheduled for presentation in 2019) and urban mobility over the years ahead. Urban mobility has always been part of the MINI brand’s DNA and the city its natural habitat.

Bookending the MINI line-up at Goodwood is the MINI John Cooper Works GP Concept. Inspired by the brand’s legendary racing success in Monte Carlo exactly 50 years ago, this concept car offers uncompromising dynamics and the ultimate in driving fun.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
