The MINI Superleggera Vision is a an electric vehicle created in collaboration with MINI and Touring Superleggera. The vehicle is a fusion of the MINI and the Superleggera coach design. It offers minimal lines and the effortless essence of a classic roadster, while an electric drive-train offers advanced driving dynamics.

The MINI Superleggera Vision is designed and crafted by hand, and is a beautiful and successful fusion of the traditional Italian coachwork construction pioneered by Superleggera and the classic British aesthetics that mark the MINI.

The front of the vehicle offers traditional MINI elements including distinctive circular headlights -- that look like cartoon eyeballs -- and a hexagonal grille. A side view of the vehicle emphasizes the 'touring line,' a precise movement from the front wheels to the rear and a trademark of the Italian coachwork building philosophy.
