The MINI Beachcomber Concept is a four-seater concept with an open body and focused on versatiliy and open air activities. It is based on the MINI Crossover and inspired by the Mini Moke from the 1960s. It will make its dubut at the 2010 Detroit Motor Show.
Among the feature are a new all-wheel drive system, ALL4, advanced suspension technology, an elevated seating position and a flexible interior.
It is designed without doors or a conventional roof, and all other body elements that could limit the intensity of the occupants’ encounter with their surrounding world.
This allows the driver and up to three passengers to connect with their surroundings and to enjoy an emotional driving experience. The ground clearance is high thanks to the generous spring travel and extra-large light-alloy wheels raise the entire car to a higher level.
The body of the Mini Moke, as it was called, was made up of little more than a floorpan, wide sills at the side, an engine compartment lid and a windshield.
