(from Mini Press
Release) MINI is taking the craze for personalisation to
extreme lengths with the launch of a six metre long MINI Cooper S
limo called the MINI XXL which will make its world premiere in
Athens this week.
The six wheel, four door, six seater stretch MINI Cooper S features
the John Cooper Works Tuning Kit and was built by a specialist coach
builder in Los Angeles. Fully loaded with all of the toys you would
expect to find in a limousine, the MINI XXL comes equipped with a
retractable flat screen TV, a DVD player, CD and radio, air
conditioning, sunroof, full black leather and a telephone in the
rear so that passengers can communicate with the driver. However,
the highlight of the MINI XXL is the whirlpool integrated into the
rear section of the car. The whirlpool seats two people and is easy
to operate. Its detachable roof means that it can be covered when
not in use and emptying it is a simple matter of pulling the plug to
release the water.
To accommodate the extra body length of the MINI XXL, the car is
supported by a third rear axle that has two additional wheels.
Following its stay in Athens the MINI XXL will commence a tour
around Europe and parts of Asia where it is set to be the star
attraction at various events.
