Mini uses the Vision concept to show what the net model will look like. We already saw it [Video]


That is right, the next-generation Mini was already seen during a photo shoot, so it is somewhat surprising that BMW (the owners of Mini) unveiled a new concept called Mini Vision. The small car was shown at today’s MINI Design@Home event and, of course, serves to show many design solutions that the production model will adopt.

BMW wasn't amused with the early reveal of the 2014 Mini. Makes fun of the situation


Two days ago, you saw here for the first time images of the next-generation Mini that were taken during an official photo. Mini, and its parent company, BMW, weren't happy, but they tried to make the best out of this situation, so, a few moments ago, BMW issued a press release comparing what happened to them with what happens to the Royal Family and other "VIPs".

This is the right way to advertise a car. This time Mini got it right


After i showed you the lame advertisement that took advantage of the scandal with the horse meat, now i will reveal to you something that is much more effective when promoting a car. In the video below we get to see a modified John Cooper Works Mini doing a back flip in the French resort of Tignes.


Mini used the horse meat scandal to promote itself

 
I think it is wrong to use this type of scandal to get some publicity but I assume it is original and the advertising company that came up with it had a "good" idea since everyone is talking about it. From what i found out this ad was printed in an English newspaper (could be wrong). See it for yourself below and tells us what you think.

MINI Clubman Bond Street for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show


Don't be confused, this version has nothing to do with the British special agent but instead with the major shopping street in the West End of London, targeting the " style-conscious customers of the particularly discerning variety".
