MINI has unveiled the Superleggera Vision concept at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.

Jointly developed with Touring Superleggera, the concept is a stylish two seat roadster that expresses "the most minimalist and emotional style of motoring."

Starting with the exterior, the Superleggera Vision has a hand-crafted body that features a soft curves and a bespoke Como Blue paint job. Other notables styling highlights include a carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber reinforced plastic side sills and a distinctive rear fin.

The minimalist cabin is elegantly equipped with premium leather upholestry, a digital instrument cluster and aluminum-covered dashboard. The model also has a three-spoke steering wheel, an analog clock and Union Jack-inspired structural elements in the doors.

MINI was coy on performance specifications but they did confirm the model is an electric vehicle that uses a single electric motor.

In a statement, BMW styling guru Adrian van Hooydonk said "Touring Superleggera and MINI have much in common: both companies attach great importance to their history and this is something which defines their outward appearance to this day. What is more, they both emphasise iconic design and distinctive solutions. These elements are merged in the MINI SuperleggeraTM Vision to create an elegant automobile which interprets a British roadster under the influence of Italian style and hand craftsmanship."
