    Mini Inspired by Goodwood

    Forget about the silly name or privce tag, this car is worth it because it's a Cooper S without the unnecessary bonnet scoop.

    And that's a good thing.

    So this is a Mini Goodwood... Interesting.

    I still don't like the massive center tachometer.

    The tachometer's up front, the massive one is the speedometer.

    It's a tacho in some martkets due to regulations I think, but the intention is to ape the original minis that had a speedo there. I'd put a pic up of my old one, but it was in a place that is now gone. The pic that is, not the speedo.

    But I like the hoodscoop!

    Also, this annoying add for Hyndai was ruining the images. Another reason not to buy a Hyndai.

    This version is much more attractive than any other iteration of the new Mini than I have seen.

    This still has the stupid new New Mini headlight and grille treatment. I prefer the less-bulbous old New Mini.

    I don't when it's not functional.

    I'm usually disinterested towards Minis, but I have to say the clean design of this one definitely caught my attention. While most minis are meant to be sporty, this Goodwood version seems to be a "luxury" version of the Cooper S. I personally think this is the most classy Cooper S I've ever seen.

    Regarding the hoodscoop you guys keep mentioning, I wouldn't mind it being on this car, but if it was, I don't think the overall design would be as clean as it is.

    Bingo - that is how I see it.

    The details are right on this one. They definitely are not on the others.
