DESIGN WITH BITE.

THE NEW MINI PACEMAN.

There are some things you just have to have straight away, and once you’ve got your hands on them, you’ll never want to let them go. With its powerful lines and high-performance engines, the new MINI Paceman is one of those things – a masterful combination of design and power. The strong engine line-up in the new MINI Paceman, capable of up to 184 horsepower, ensures outstanding performance time and again. The new MINI Paceman is also available with the optional ALL4 all-wheel drive system. And if you’re looking for an adrenaline-fuelled drive, the MINI John Cooper Works Paceman will soon be available. Ambient Lighting helps create the perfect atmosphere in the stylish interior, featuring elegant door ellipses, and the two individual seats in the rear provide the necessary comfort for a true lounge environment. For more information on the new MINI Paceman, visit www.MINI.co.uk/Paceman. Contact your MINI Dealer to arrange a test drive from March 2013.

the MINI Roadster Adventure Room

THE ADVENTURE ROOM.

In October we showed you the MINI Coupé Adventure Room which is a MINI UK microsite devoted to the new MINI Coupe (which is just one of the countries that have this, the US not included).  The site has been expanded to include the MINI Roadster.

Inside of the “Room”, MINI has ten multimedia and interactive sections:

  1. Get a First Look. This a gallery of illustrations of the MINI Roadster.
  2. Step Inside. Tour the inside of the Roadster with an interactive viewer.
  3. Ready for a Close Up? View the Making-of MINI Adventures. Part 1″ video.
  4. Do Try This at Home. “Learn how to catch the rays in style with this handy demonstration video.”
  5. MINI 24 Hour Endurance Race. This is a photo gallery of images from the 24 hour race at the Nürburgring.
  6. Get Blown Away.  Photos of the MINI Coupe undergoing wind-tunnel testing.
  7. Slots of Colours.  The interactive “slot machine” creates random images of the Coupe in three colors.
  8. The Adventure Never Ends.  Another photo gallery of the MINI Coupe, this time for MINIInternational.
  9. Coupé in the Limelight.  Behind-the-scenes video from the MINIInternational photoshoot.

collectible of the day: Ministry of Ownership Passport

Ministry of Ownership Passport

New MINI owners in the UK used to receive a welcome package containing a MINISTRY OF OWNERSHIP PASSPORT. Looking similar to a UK passport, this booklet gave instructions on registering for the (now defunct) Ministry of Ownership section of the MINI UK website at www.mini.co.uk.  The passport came with stickers with the owner’s VIN to stick on the passport cover.  MINI UK stopped sending them sometime in late-2007.
