Following its global reveal last year, the MINI Concept Aceman will make its UK debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2023. Taking centre stage inside the MINI display, the Concept Aceman is an initial glimpse of a vehicle bridging the space between the MINI Cooper and the MINI Countryman in the model family’s future.

Showcasing MINI’s reduced future design language - which is completely free of chrome and leather – the concept offers a responsible material design with surfaces constructed from knitted recycled textiles. This combined seamlessly with digital controls and a new circular OLED display as the central interface, creates an immersive digital experience with a strong focus on a minimal environmental footprint.

Following its podium finish at the Nürburgring 24-hour race in May, the MINI John Cooper Works 1to6 Edition will also make its first appearance in the UK. Set to take on Goodwood’s infamous hill climb twice daily (Friday through Sunday), the six-speed manual transmission tribute will be driven by Charlie Cooper – grandson of the legendary John Cooper. Guests will also find the 1to6 Edition in the First Glance Paddock across the festival.

Heading over to Electric Avenue, attendees can witness open air, all-electric driving with the first MINI Electric Convertible on display. Strictly limited to just 150 units for the UK and with a WLTP range of 125 miles, the trailblazer represents an important step in MINI’s direction towards becoming an all-electric brand.

Offering guests an interactive experience with exciting giveaways, the MINI display will also feature a large circular screen – inspired by the concept car’s revolutionary circular OLED – hosted by the brand’s new canine virtual assistant, Spike.

The 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speeds takes place on 13th July – 16th July.

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
