An extremely rare Mini Cooper Mk VII Final Edition, Spotted in China in the great city of Shanghai by Reader BYDfortheWin (thank you!), who runs a Facebook-page with all sorts of great Shanghai metal. The Final Edition was the final series of the original Mini Mk VII, which was manufactured from 1996 until 2000. The Final Edition was only made in the 2000 model year, it comes with a set of four rally lights on the bumper, white racing stripes over the bonnet, a stripe with a commemorative badge on the sides, and a top-spec interior.

We all know the ‘new driver’ warning stickers. China got these too. They usually say ‘xin shou’ (新手), which means ‘new hand’, as opposed to ‘old hand’. This particular sticker, Spotted in China in a Mini on the Fifth Ring Road in Beijing, adds an interesting detail: (女). The character ‘nu’ means ‘woman’. So we got to be extra careful here! I stayed away clear but sometime later I somehow ended up alongside to the right, finding a smiling man on the passenger seat and a visible nervous female behind the wheel. Sadly I couldn’t get a shot at it. Hope they good…

We love to fuck Pink Mini Countrymen, we love to fuck other Pink Mini’s, and we love to fuck any Pink car. What we don’t love however, is a Pink Mini Countryman telling us to go fuck ourselves, that is just not very nice.
This rude little vehicle was Spotted in China in the great city of Shanghai by Reader Antoine Chalendard, thank you for the picture! If we ignore her rudeness for a moment she is actually quite a good looker, wrapped in a top quality matte Pink wrap contrasting perfectly with extra shiny chrome, darkened windows, and a white roof. The lettering is in glitter, with some parts shiny and some parts dark. The dark parts make ‘fuck you’. Well dear Pink Mini, fuck you too. Wadda girl…

A very cool Mini Countryman, Spotted in China in front of the Solana shopping mall just east of the Third Ring Road in Beijing. The mad Mini was wrapped in a eye sweetening matte Pink wrap, and further mined up by darkened windows, three chromed bars in the grille, a chrome strip around the grille, chrome strips around the headlights, a large chrome strip around the side indicator, chromed doorhandles, and extra wide tires with five-double spoke alloys with a Pink dot in the middle and red Brembo brakes.

A very manic Mini Roadster, Spotted in China in a faraway suburb in east Beijing. The good Mini was wrapped in an incredible matte dark blue wrap that was a bit shiny at the same time, and further sexed up by speedy racing stripes, kinda custom badges, and a large plastic bee on the radio-antenna.

We have seen many very pretty China Car Girls selling cars in China, but today we have something very special in the fine shape of these two beautiful laowai ladies. They are working for Mini, taking care of the entertainment during the opening of a MINI brand experience center in Shanghai. Mini certainly knows what affluent Chinese men in their forties like to have…

The best spy shots of the interior of the new Mini, in the world, seen in China. BMW is extensively testing the new Mini on Chinese roads because China is one of the biggest market worldwide for the Mini brand and will likely be the biggest market within five years.

The sky is very blue here in Beijing today, time thus for a very blue Mini Clubman, with a very pretty brown-eyed Chinese girl opening all the doors. She must be looking for her trousers! Click on the Pics for Bigs™. Slightly NSFW.

Spectacular spy shots showing the new Mini, the BMW i3, and the new BMW x5 testing in the rain on a highway in China. We have seen the BMW i3 on Chinese roads before but this is the first time we meet the new Mini One.
The Chinese car market has become very important for the Mini brand, with the young ‘n hip buying everything Mini launches. The new Mini One will also become available as a 5-door, thereby widening its appeal even more in China where many car buyers like to ferry their parents around town in the weekends.
