Sir Paul Smith has teamed up with Mini on a one-off version of their Mini Cooper SE, reducing the car to its bare essentials. The Mini Strip features an unfinished body with a protective paint layer while the Mini black band has been 3D-printed from recycled plastic. It also features a blanked-off radiator grille and wheel covers to reduce drag, recycled Perspex grille trim and aerodynamic covers, a recycled Perspex roof, and an interior that removes the majority of the trim pieces. Additionally, the interior has been fitted with knitted fabric seats, recycled cork, and of course, Paul Smith's signature hits of color can be seen throughout the car.
