COULD this be competition for the new Mazda MX-5 or Alfa Romeo Spider?

Mini has partnered with Touring Superleggera, the tradition-steeped design and coachbuilding house based in Milan, to create a bespoke roadster.

It was revealed at the ultra-glamorous Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este at Lake Como, Italy.

Called the Superleggera Vision, the two-seat concept car features Mini's signature circular headlights at the front and tail-lights shaped to look like half a Union Jack each.

There are also striking classic sports-car elements such as a wide track and distinctively curved wheel arches that give the front a dynamic presence. The classic Mini bonnet stripes are three-dimensionally embossed and run on into high-quality polished aluminium accents. The inlaid bonnet harks back to classic British roadsters of bygone days.

Body gaps are minimal as it is constructed from large metal sheets designed to deliver high-quality elegance.

The specially developed exterior paint finish, como blue, almost liquid in effect, stands for classic and modern style.

The elaborate rims and the elegant exterior mirrors in long-hole look complete with a mirror base in polished aluminium add exclusive accentuations at the side.

The striking fin defines the look of the rear, adding some extravagance.
