Smart!

June 28, 2008

The smart fortwo can legally seat only two people. But you would be amazed at the amount of nonsense people you can fit inside. Up to thirteen people! The stunt was made to celebrate the smart’s 10th anniversary. Owners and visitors to the annual smart Destination Brooklands event held at Mercedes-Benz World at Weybridge, Great Britain, were invited to take up the smart-packing challenge. Among the 1,200 candidates, a group of body-bending specialists were chosen for their gymnastic features and ability to get 13 people crammed inside.

Mini Chateau

May 9, 2008


The MINI Chateau is based on the MINI Clubman S, made its world debut at the recent Top Marques show in Monaco, will be limited to just 12 units and radiates exclusivity and luxury with its wood trims and miniature, shock absorbant wine cellar (room for 6 bottles and chalices) in the trunk.

The MINI Chateau is painted in pearly-changeable Turd brown matched with sandy/gold metallic paint for the roof, bumpers and some details. But what really stands out is the use of precious wood, both on the inside and outside of the car. Inside Aznom fitted the upholstery with gaucho leather and Alcantara to create a warm, vintage atmosphere.

The car rides on 18 inch TSW ‘Pace’ alloy wheels wrapped in 205/40 Yokohama S-Drive rubber. The Mini Chateaux will be realized in a limited edition of sole 12 really exclusive samples characterized by numbered labels completed with the name of the lucky owners.
