When it comes to making ultra-premium limited edition Minis using the finest materials available, there have been other Minis produced in the past by companies such as Radford and Wood & Pickett in the 60s and 70s, but nothing in recent years quite so special as the Inspired By Goodwood model.
The Mini Inspired By Goodwood results from a close collaboration between Mini and Rolls-Royce to create a limited-run, special edition of 1000 units, using the finest materials and Rolls-Royce’s flawless workmanship to create one of the most luxurious Minis available.
The Inspired By Goodwood has plenty of unique touches to push it to the top of luxury, with features such as the Rolls-Royce Diamond Black metallic paint and freshly designed wheels. The inside is where it stands out from the rest, with high-quality Black and Cornsilk Nappa leather, Cashmere headlining and walnut Burr exclusive to Rolls-Royce; even the instrument font matches that of a Rolls.

About Max Bids
The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.
Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.
If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.
£0 to £9,999
£10,000 to £49,999
£50,000 to £99,999
Automatically outbid immediately
When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.
Matching max bids
When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
What are pre-bids?
A pre-bid means you\'re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.
Problem with your bid
Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
