MINI will showcase incarnations of the all new MINI Hatch at The Goodwood Festival of Speed on 26-29 June 2014. A contemporary evolution of the classic MINI design, the new car features significant improvements in technology, engine efficiency and power delivery, driving dynamics, quality and personalisation. Built in Oxford, the new MINI Hatch has a range of three entirely new engines, including a new ground-breaking 1.6 litre three-cylinder engine, and each featuring MINI TwinPower Turbo Technology.
Performance-oriented MINI fans will be able to see the MINI John Cooper Works Concept on display for the first time in the UK. The Concept premiered at the NAIAS 2014 in Detroit and represents the next generation of the sporty John Cooper Works model. Developed with extensive race track expertise, the car features large air inlets in the front apron, a rear spoiler as well as distinctively designed side sills and rear apron – complemented by a sports brake and sports exhaust system.
MINI will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of rally legend, Paddy Hopkirk, winning the 1964 Monte Carlo rally in a Mini Cooper. Paddy will be on the MINI stand to answer questions about his famous victory and sign autographs.
