While the World’s head is turned towards the Olympics that just started in Beijing, that is the definitive place to have your commercial campaigns. Mini Clubman brings a whole new meaning to “chinese traditional transport”, with its very inspired campaign in the current capital of worldwide sports. The Mini-Rickshaws hit the headlines, and make the Mini Clubman campaign very sucessfull. The rickshaw is a traditional Chinese transport means, it was first powered by men on foot and dates back to 1868. Guess the Mini marketing team really hit the spot this time.

Though it’s not really our favourite car over here at Auto Unleashed, the Mini Clubman is selling pretty good, especially the Cooper S Clubman. And the German tuner AC Schnitzer came up with a very interesting tuning program for the British car. The 170 hp engine has been modified and it now develops 226 hp / 166 kW and 285 Nm of torque, which is quite impressive. The body kit also looks good, with new front spoiler and power dome, not to mention the twin sports rear silencer and chromed tailpipes which, besides looking good, make the Clubman sound pretty fiercy.

To improve handling and driving performance, AC Schnitzer fitted the car with a spring kit and height-adjustable racing suspension, limited slip differential (up to maximum 75 percent) and 17” or 18” special wheels.
