The MINI Concept Tokyo will
feature a new roof and cargo box system, as well as a new interior green
colour scheme, alloy design and indicator lights sporting the Union Jack.
The concept is
experimenting with access and storage solutions.
The roof system houses a
table and two chairs for impromptu picnics and weary guests at cricket
The cargo box in the rear
of the car can be taken out and attached to the side window when open to
create a table for serving tea and scones.
MINI went on sale in Japan

and Italy. MINI is on sale in over 70 countries worldwide and year-to-date
sales have increased by 12 per cent to 159,413 in 2005.
