Created for the 2014 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, this is a bigger MINI that gets our approval

The MINI Roadster is quite a polarizing car. You either love it or hate it. Nobody is indifferent.

We are going to guess the same will be true with this new concept, though we think the tetter-totter will very much be off-balance in the ‘YES!’ category.

Built by MINI and coach builder Touring Superleggera, who also designed the absolutely gorgeous Alfa Romeo Disco Volante, the MINI Superleggera will be heading to the 2014  Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.

MINI says the car extrudes classic style while also having an ultra-modern electric powertrain. Body panels have been hand crafted while using luxurious materials inside. All we know is it’s one extremely sexy boattailed roadster that’s welcome in our driveway anyday.
