Thanks to a set of mirror SM particles, related to the SM ones by an approximate parity symmetry, the twin Higgs mechanism enables models of electroweak symmetry breaking to be minimally tuned without colored particles below a few TeV. In this talk I will present one example of twin Higgs model where only the Higgs complex doublet and the top quark have mirrors: the Higgs, along with mirror scalars, arise as Nambu-Goldstone bosons from the spontaneous breaking of a global SO(7) to G2, and the mirror top is neutral under the SM gauge group. I will discuss the viability of the model, the generation of the Higgs potential, and the phenomenology at colliders of such a minimal set of mirror particles.
