The booklet titled “Text” contains 16 pages of information in two sections:

  • MINI at the 77th International Motor Show Geneva 2007. (Short Version)
  • More Fun on Less Fuel: The new MINI One. The new MINI Cooper D.

The booklet titled “Photos” contains 19 pages, nine of which have glossy color photos of a Pepper White and Black MINI Cooper D and a Pure Silver MINI One.  Other pages have information about the included CD (mentioned above) in both German and English.

The CD contains the full content of the Press bulletin as well as MINI product photos and runs in a web browser.
