Now this is what I call a genuine MINI – a cardboard made 2007 Mini Cooper soap-box with the compliments of MINI itself! From what I could make out by reading the German-only press release, it seems that this one of a kind piece is auctioned on e-bay in cooperation with Autobild magazine and all funds will be given for charity. The current bid is set at 1.000 EUR or about 1.290 USD and the final bidding date is on Monday, the 27th of November.
MINI, sorry, I mean.. BMW, thought about the less fortunate too as they’ve uploaded a large pic of the car (see pic bellow) which you can print, cut, fold and glue, creating your own personal desktop soap-box MINI. Cool!
PS: Allow me a bit of nagging. We know that Mini is owned by BMW and that’s fine with us. But that doesn’t change the fact that Mini is a British company so, could someone explain to me why do all Mini press releases come out first in German and later on–or to be exact, very, very later on, in English?
