New Mini Beachcomber Is The Rebirth Of The Classic Mini Moke
posted on Dec 18 2009 by Kyle McWilton
It's Official! MINI is putting the fun back into 4x4s with a successor to the famous Moke of the sixties. The new Mini car is badged the MINI Beachcomber Concept. And it will no doubt take January's Detroit Motor Show by storm. To climb on board access is through the huge side opening, and the emphasis is on an active lifestyle. Each seat gets its own symbol depicting an outdoor pursuit, while a compass and a false horizon to the left and right of the steering wheel keeps you pointing in the right direction.
Rugged wheelarches are filled with 17-inch alloys, which will be available on the production Car in a selection of sizes up to 19-inches, and wrapped in deep-grooved run-flat tyres, negating the need for a spare. So, instead of serving its usual purpose, the wheel cover attached to the boot door acts as additional storage. Another clever touch is the rear cross beam euro viewed from above, it spells out MINI's logo.
