When A MINI Is No Longer Mini, Can It Still Be Called A MINI?

When A MINI Is No Longer Mini, Can It Still Be Called A MINI?

2013 MINI Countryman

Yeah, with five-door hatchbacks and SUVs, we can all agree that MINI has jumped the shark from the original subcompact hatch plan..but this is kinda interesting. Someone has taken the Countryman SUV, fitted with a manual transmission and all-wheel-drive, and lifted it for more ground clearance. The roof basket with big auxiliary lights is a nice touch.

It’s weird..and we wonder how well it actually can do offroad..but we applaud the effort.

It’s on eBay in San Diego for $31k or offer.2013 MINI Countryman black rear quarter 2013 MINI Countryman interior 2013 MINI Countryman black profile
