MINI UK kindly invited our Social Media Manager, Joseph Kidd, down to Goodwood Festival of Speed this year.
Held in the beautiful parkland surrounding Goodwood House, the Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard is motorsport's ultimate summer garden party, an intoxicating celebration of the world's most glamorous sport. Nowhere else will you get so close to the cars and bikes as they blast up the hillclimb track; nowhere else will you enjoy such unrestricted access to the machines and the drivers who made them famous.
It was amazing to see the rare and highly desirable JCW 1TO6 Edition at Goodwood Festival of Speed this year!
Here's some fun facts on this racecar-inspired car:
• The last of its kind. The JCW 1TO6 is a celebration of the JCW 6-speed Manual Transmission.
• Exclusive design. Features special 1TO6 Edition details, including edition logos on the exterior and interior, and a unique exterior graphic with 'ONE OF 999' lettering.
• Darkened sporty aesthetic. This special edition makes an impression with Midnight Black paint, complemented by a Piano Black exterior and darkened rear glass.
• Power Output (hp): 231
• Torque (Nm): 320
• 0-62mph (secs): 6.3
• Top Speed (mph): 152
• Transmission: Manual
The MINI Concept Aceman was also on display.
Our first all-electric MINI Crossover SAV blends in hallmark MINI agility and innovative design thinking, while delivering an assured driving position. It showcases what makes a MINI: exciting proportions, distinctive lines and clever functionality. Agile and powerful, yet with a sense of timeless sophistication, the MINI Concept Aceman is the start of a new adventure.
