Yes, Sir! Classic MINI With Electric Drivetrain Is The Right Thing To Do!

Sir Alec Issigonis designed classic MINI introduced 60 years ago remain one of the most endearing classic cars today. It should rightly continue to live on today and beyond. It has earned it, but not without first getting the eco conscious treatment. And eco conscious is this Swind E Classic Mini. The idea of electrifying classic MINI is not new. Even MINI has pitched the idea not too long ago, but unfortunately, MINI has no intention of producing it even in limited numbers. Continue reading Yes, Sir!

British Lad’s Classic MINI Has An Astonishing 360HP At The Wheels!

While most 20 something lads are out partying during their free time, one 22-year-old British chap from Bristol known only as “Ollie” spent the time he have tinkering with car.

This classic MINI here has over 300 ponies and that’s at the wheels! Holy mother… Continue reading British Lad’s Classic MINI Has An Astonishing 360HP At The Wheels!

MINI JCW GP Concept Has So Many Things Going On On The Exterior

There is really nothing much to talk about the MINI John Cooper Works GP Concept that made the show floor at the recent New York International Auto Show. It is a concept that either you hate it or love it. As you can see, the ride has so many things going on the exterior that they almost made it look very spaceship-like. Not a lot is known about this oddity except that the over-the-top exterior is supposed to convey a pure race feeling (wait, does it???).

Seriously, I Want This All-electric Classic Mini Now!

It is odd that the icon of compact hatch of our time does not already have fully electric cars plying the roads. I guess MINI is taking its time to make sure it does it right cos’ obviously, a car this tiny will have questionable range due the straight up space constraint. While BMW Group let lose its exclusive version of the Mini Cooper S E Countryman ALL4, a plug-in hybrid, on a long-haul journey that will take it from North America to Tierra del Fuego, the British marque has brought to the show floor of the New York International Auto Show a full-electric drive example.

MINI Wants You Camp With MINI Countryman With This Roof Tent

Does the new MINI Countryman inspired you to hit up the great outdoors? If yes, then you should know, it is probably best not to have this little guy have a trailer in tow. Why? I don’t know? Maybe because it is not a Land Rover or Jeep? Or maybe because hooking up a few thousand pounds is going to impede on this lively little fellow (even though it is well capable of 4,000 lbs towing capacity)? So, what’s the next best idea? This: Autohome AirTop Roof Tent for MINI Countryman. Designed in collaboration with MINI Design Team, Autohome’s AirTop Roof Tent is designed to fit on the standard roof rails found on the new MINI Countryman and it can be mounted fairly easily without the need for tools, because it makes zero sense to bring tools to the wilderness.

MINI John Cooker Works Will Turn A MINI Drop Top Into A Mobile Cook Top

Nothing can be taken seriously on April 1st. Really. Our inbox is flooded with intriguing products released on this day, but being April 1st, most of these ‘products’ are obviously not real; they are businesses out to prank us in the name of April Fools Day. Though so. We see the beauty some of these April Fools jokes because they are clearly pranks due to the level ridiculousness in them and yet, they are made so ‘convincingly’, often complete with product images, that you have to give it to the businesses for going this far to prank the world.
