When the Cooper family set out to build competitive single-seater race cars from a garage in London in the late 1940s, they could surely never have imagined the impact their creations would have both in the UK and across the world.
To celebrate 75 years of the family business, and 60 years of the world-beating Mini Cooper S, the Cooper Car Company has entered into a partnership with Brightwell Motor Company to offer a very special limited edition run of fast road Minis and Newton Commercial couldn't be more excited to be producing the bespoke interior to this spectacular limited run of unique Coopers.
Hand Crafted by Experts
The classic Connaught Green and Old English White exterior is complimented by a full Newton Commercial interior, upholstered with a unique Grenadine and Gold Brocade interior playing homage to the original Cooper colour schemes. Boasting a pair of our popular complete replica Cooper recliners, high frequency welded original style panels, moulded carpets with bespoke trimmed overmats and a whole host of other quality Newton Commercial trim, these limited edition interiors are the perfect example of our wealth of knowledge and skills in producing classic car interior trim.
Cooper Classic: Gold Brocade
Newton Commercial's journey with Gold Brocade is well known to all who love the classic Mini Cooper and the inclusion of Newton Commercial Gold Brocade in these special edition models is testament to our endeavour and the hard work of Jonny, Richard and our team across the years. Using pieces of original Gold Brocade material and feedback of the experts on the Mini scene, we have been able to recreate closer to the original backing colour and have also improved the difficult task of lining up the Gold print and the material emboss that has proven so difficult . Extensive research and investment has allowed us to continue our investment and commitment to the Mini scene, developing new products and striving to achieve original material and processes.
We are incredibly proud to be providing interior for the Brightwell Motor Company team and thank them for allowing us to get up close and personal with original prototypes at their Hockley, Essex address. This carefully chosen package is guaranteed to deliver an exhilarating and rewarding driving experience.
