Getting in the Olympic Spirit – England Athlete Jumps Over MINIs

The London 2012 Olympics are slowly approaching and everyone at MINI is ecstatic for the games.  In 2008, Michael Phelps captivated the world with his amazing 8 gold medal performance.  What will story of 2012 be?

Leading up to the Olympics, England long jump champion and London 2012 hopeful J.J. Jegede took his training up a notch.  We got him to do a long jump over some MINIs.  Watch as he clears not one, not two, but THREE MINI cars.  Quite impressive.  J.J should have a great shot at competing in London!


We got one!!! Check out the First MINI Coupe at MINI of Pittsburgh

Its official!  MINI of Pittsburgh proudly has a MINI Coupe on its lot!  The Coupe is a gorgeous blue color, fast, and AWESOME!  We could not be happier to have one on our lot considering they are not coming to dealerships until October.

The MINI Coupe is the brand new two-seater from MINI that guns around corners like a golf-cart with some serious speed.  The handling and speed combination of the Coupe is a brand new experience for MINI vehicles that enthusiasts can’t wait to try out.

You’ll love not only the driving experience of the Coupe but also the fuel efficiency.  The MINI Coupe pulls in 37 mpg on the highway and 29 mpg in the city.  The Coupe is an amazing driving experience AND avoids trips to the gas station!
