Tony Hawk jumps over moving Mini

Tony Hawk Mini

Ever wondered what would happen if you give one of the world’s best skateboarders the opportunity to do a trick over a moving car? Well, this.

Superstar skateboarder, Tony Hawk, recently pushed the limits once again when he literally performed an olley (to us non skateboarders, a pretty high jump) over a moving Mini Cooper S. And the result was something pretty spectacular.

Mr. hawk is not new to jumping over cars, either. A couple of years ago he attempted the same feat, by jumping over a Lexus LS. However, the Lexus was not moving – in fact, the car wasn’t even on – and it was parked sideways, which means he only had to jump over the width of the car and not the length. (more…)

With the New York Auto Show in full swing, Mini brought their all new Mini Countryman to the party to be unveiled to the world for the first time. And just as we suspected, the new Coutryman is as great as its predecessor.

At first glance, one might think “have they actually changed anything?”. Well the answer to that question will be yes, they have. although not that apparent, the changes to the Mini Countryman are good, and will  no doubt please any existing Mini fan.

The exterior almost looks exactly the same. However, upon further inspection, one can see the slight (yet thoroughly effective) design changes on the Mini’s outer shell.  (more…)

Mini Cooper S Diesel Prototype 1

By the looks of it, MINI are planning to make a new addition to their line of vehicles with the new MINI Cooper S Diesel. Aimed at higher-end consumers, other than the 1.6 litre turbocharged diesel engine (outputting between 140 and 150hp), the new Cooper S shows off two central tailpipes, an upgraded front bumper design, a new bonnet scoop and a few other details that MINI has failed to confirm for now. What’s a certainty though, this Cooper S Diesel will definitely deliver the same experience that they’ve used us with. Looks cool! What do you guys think? [via WCF]

MINI is turning 50. The guys are going to celebrate with a limited edition MINI WC50 that not only says “Happy Birthday” but also pays homage to John Cooper’s 1959 F1 Title. Under the hood nothing changed but if you take a closer look to the outside, it features bi-xenon lights, an aero kit with a carbon fiber bonnet scoop, carbon fiber mirror caps and a stylish rear diffuser. With only 250 units only meant for Europe, the green MINI WC50 is an interesting addition that will definitely cause head turns on the streets. [via TFTS]
