Each year, some of the most stunning automobiles get together by the shores of Lake Como in Italy for the Concorso d’Eleganza at the Villa d’Este. The German automaker BMW, who have been part of the event for several years in the past, have regularly used the stage to reveal a concept car or two. This year however, BMW has presented a brand new Mini Concept called Superleggera Vision. 

The stunning looking concept is the work of BMW in concert with Touring Superleggera, the same Italian shop behind the Alfa Romeo Disco Volante. The concept is a stylish two seat roadster that expresses “the most minimalist and emotional style of motoring.” On the outside, the Mini Superleggera Vision features a hand crafted body with soft curves and a bespoke Como Blue paint job. Other notable styling highlights include, a carbon fibre front splitter, carbon fibre re-enforced plastic side sills and a distinctive rear fin. 

On the inside, the Concept has been decked in premium leather upholstery and features a digital instrument cluster, aluminium-cover dashboard, three-spoke steering wheel, analog clock and Union Jack-inspired structural elements in he doors. The mechanical bits are still kept under wraps. But BMW did confirm that the model is an electric vehicle and will make use of a single electric motor. 

BMW styling guru, Adrian van Hooydonk remarked, “Touring Superleggera and Mini have much in common: both companies attach great importance to their history and this is something, which defines their outward appearance of this day. What is more, they both emphasis iconic design and distinctive solutions. These elements are merged in the Mini SuperlerggeraTM Vision to create an elegant automobile, which interprets a British roadster under the influence of Italian style and hand craftsmanship.”
