MINI XXL
MINI stretch limo makes world debut in Athens

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.
