Mini Concept Aceman to debut at Festival of Speed

The Mini Concept Aceman will make its dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard from 13th-16th July as the company previews a new EV that will sit between the Cooper and Countryman in terms of size. Mini's John Cooper Works 1to6 Edition and Electric Convertible will also be making their UK debut.


The Aceman showcases Mini's new 'reduced future' design language, which drops chrome and leather for shiny black trims and knitted recycled textiles. It'll be your first opportunity to see Mini's new OLED centre display.

The Mini stand will also feature a large circular screen – inspired by the concept's OLED – hosted by the brand's canine virtual assistant, Spike.


While the Aceman looks to the future, the John Cooper Works 1to6 Edition nods to the company's past. Mini will build 150 examples to celebrate its partnership with Formula One legend John Cooper in 1961 – all come with a six-speed manual gearbox. Charlie Cooper, John Cooper's grandson, will drive it up the hill.
