VcB: Tell us a little about yourself
MINI: I’m a brand new, spice orange, 2-door, sports car. I love urban living. The city is where I belong and I’m always up for an adventure.
VcB: Any special talents?
MINI: Many! When I reach 80km/hour my spoiler rises which allows the driver to gain more control. I have automatic climate control which keeps my interior cooled/warmed at the perfect temperature. And best of all, when you press my sports button, my engine gets louder, steering gets tighter, and my gears change quicker.
VcB: What’s on your current playlist?
MINI: Drake’s Thank Me Later album. Yes, it’s old. Don’t judge me.
VcB: You’ve been awarded Best Engine of the Year for four years in a row. What makes you so athletic?
MINI: Don’t make me blush! I do have a four-cylinder twin-scroll turbo engine. I also have an overboost function, which increases the peak torque from 240 to 260 Nm. I can sprint from a standstill to 100 km/h in 6.9/7.1 s. And if I really wanted to show off, I could reach speeds of up to 228/224 km/h.
VcB: Where do you currently hold residencies in Vancouver?
MINI: I grew up at MINI Richmond but I’m currently living in Vancouver with your intern, Amrit. We’re having a blast. Wave hello if you see us on the road!
