Mini has more than one April fools prank. Here's the Mini Cooper T, a model so special, it runs on tea-leaf biofuel composite.
Available in exclusive colors including ‘Chamomile Yellow', ‘Red Bush' and ‘Earl Grey', the Mini Cooper T is capable of covering up to 40 miles (64 km) on a single cup.
Aside from the standard features, it also as DAT (Dunk Avoidance Technology), which is a filtration system that stops passersby from inserting biscuits into the Mini T's fuel tank.
“This particular project has been brewing for years. Our extensive research has shown that the nation’s favourite drink is also an ideal biofuel. We already know good things come in small packages, but with Cooper T customers benefitting from up to 40 miles per cup, we are delighted to have the opportunity to bring this car to market,’’ said the head of Cooper T engineering, Dr. Ivana Kuppa.
The Mini Cooper T will be on display at Mini Cotswold Gloucester on 1 April.
