MINI now has Rolls-Royce-esque Floating Hub Caps

BMW Group, which owns both MINI and Rolls-Royce has transferred some technology between the two brands. The floating hub cap logos, once a staple of the Rolls-Royce experience, now exists officially within the MINI brand. And you can retrofit these on your own MINI that fits 56mm hub caps and 112mm PCD.

Two versions of the Floating Hub Cap are available: one with the MINI logo against a black backdrop and one with the John Cooper Works logo against a black backdrop.

The hub caps are available on the German MINI store for 70 Euros without shipping.

It’s often the little things that boost hallmark MINI driving fun even more. For example a testing look at the hubcabs of a MINI can reveal a driver’s true style. This is made possible by the new wheel hubcaps for MINI and John Cooper Works models in the MINI Original Accessory range. They don’t rotate with the wheel when driving and always show the brand logo in horizontal position. This innovative detail provides an amazing effect and makes the light alloy wheels even more attractive to look at.

Not upside down, not sideways, not diagonal – the position of the MINI and John Cooper Works logo always remains in the upright position even when the car is in motion with these new hubcaps. This is thanks to the floating hubcap design. Precisely positioned weights on the front of the cap and a flexible connection to the wheel hub extension ensure that the hubcaps remain horizontal when driving.

The standard covers can be swapped easily for the new wheel hubcaps in a few simple moves. They are available in two versions, either with the MINI or the John Cooper Works logo. The wheel hubcaps can be purchased both at the MINI subsidiaries and MINI partners as well as from the online MINI Shop at .
