Back in April 2011, Rolls Royce and Mini rolled out the Mini Cooper S "Inspired by Goodwood" by Rolls-Royce, a model based off a standard Mini Cooper S and inspired by Rolls Royce’s design elements. Vilner Studio took one look at the special edition and decided if Rolls Royce could do it, then they could do it even better by opting to transform the Mini’s interior into that of a Bentley model. Their package is called the "Italian Job" - after the movie - and features one of the most impressive interiors anyone will ever see in a Mini.

The package starts off with Nappa leather, the same leather used in Bentley’s factory, offered in brown and combined with two colors of high-tech Alcantara. This tan leather has a diamond-shaped texture that also matches Bentley’s pattern and can be found on the seats and doors where they are combined with smooth black leather. All of the original plastic parts were then sprayed down with a sparkling gray finish.

The Mini Cooper S package was all about transforming the interior to look like a Bentley, but the exterior was not left out entirely. Vilner chose a matte gray wrap and then added two matte black racing stripes going up the hood towards the full matte black roof. The package is completed by a new set of 18" black wheels.

I’m just concerned with the paint job of this car because I think the color for the exterior doesn’t match on it interior though the wood concept look so luxurious!

Its dressed up interior seems so cool for this Cooper, and it looks very luxurious on that. Moreover, I thought that it was a race car based on its exterior graphic design which I also find looks impressive.

Very awesome upholstery and its color assigned to it. Very classy look inside and literally impressive interior. See how complimented the two color of its high-tech Alcantara.

Agreed, I really don’t like the design for the exterior. However, I was impressed with the styling on its interior because of the material used. BTW, the matte and the racing stripes doesn’t look impressive on the car.

Its a good thing that they have offer a boost power performance on the car. Aside from the impressive leather material used in the interior of the car. BTW, I thunk the black racing stripes doesn’t match on the car.

Wow! With the awesome styling in the interior it really makes me to forgot on how it looks from the outside! I bet this car is quite pricey compare to the original version.

hmm. I think the styling for the exterior of this car looks so vintage. I think its time for the Mini to make a newer platform just like the Fiat or Smart cars.

I am really surprised on how they were able to turn out these Minis into something rather easily. Just take a look at the interior of this thing, very classy indeed.

This Cooper is one of the cars who has the best interior I’ve ever seen. Rolls Royce definitely has done a greatwork here using designs of a Bentley model. A Mini Classy Car, that’s the perfect definition for this.

I wonder on how comfortable are those leather coated seats! And I think Goodwood have made an incredible modification for the interior. However, I agree that the matte color on the hood and in the roof doesn’t match on its interior.

Wow! Owning this car makes me feel like having a Roll Royce car! BTW, I’m just concerned with the paint job of this car because I think the color for the exterior doesn’t match on it interior though the wood concept look so luxurious!
