Mini Convertible boat visits 2013 Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta

A Chili Red Mini Convertible will be “driving” on the water along the Schuylkill River during the 2013 Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta, the famous annual festival of university and college rowing on May 10-11. Powered by a 6 hp outboard motor, the Mini Convertible boat features a fiberglass mold of the car mounted to a boat hull, and accessorized with authentic Mini parts, including headlights, taillights, grille, steering wheel, badges, wheels and tires. It was constructed by ACI Composites Inc, based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and trimmed so that the wheels rotate in the water reinforcing the illusion that the Mini Convertible is being driven on the river.

The new Paceman is the seventh model in the Mini range

The seventh model in the Mini range is the new Mini Paceman, which will go on sale beginning March 16, 2013. Mini Paceman features stretched coupe lines and the go-kart feeling, that teams up with the exclusive ambience of its versatile interior. While many Mini Paceman buyers will view their new car as a sporty 2+2 seater, the interior has been designed as a genuine four-seater with ample space for rear-seat passengers. Its innovative vehicle concept takes its cues from the needs of modern target groups, who will appreciate its confident appearance as much as the infectious driving fun it guarantees.

The new Mini Clubvan

Based on the Mini Clubman, the new Mini Clubvan is a versatile choice both for upmarket commercial applications and for non-mainstream leisure and lifestyle use. Its dimensions, with a length of 3,961 mm, a width of 1683 mm, a height of 1,426 mm and a wheelbase of 2,547 mm, are the same as those of the Mini Clubman. Its functionally minded design has been achieved by taking out the rear seats and adding a range of customised features. The blocked-out, opaque rear side windows are body-coloured, with an interior polycarbonate reinforcement. In combination with tinted glass in the rear doors, this keeps the load compartment well concealed from prying eyes.

Mini John Cooper Works GP

The sportiest road-registered Mini ever made will go on sale later this year in a limited run of 2,000 cars. It is currently completing a programme of testing in preparation for series production, part of which has involved setting an impressive fastest lap of the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife circuit. The Mini John Cooper Works GP lapped the erstwhile Grand Prix course in 8 min. 23 sec. In so doing, the new model has put clear asphalt between itself and numerous sports cars from loftier perches – and beaten the lap time set by its predecessor, the Mini Cooper S with John Cooper Works GP Kit, by almost 19 seconds.
