The MINI Vision Next 100 Concept Gives Sneak Peak Into MINI’s Future

MINI’s latest concept, the MINI Vision Next 100, shows off what MINI thinks the future of driving and travel will be like. The MINI Vision Next 100 Concept is designed to be a part of a car sharing. With a car company, like MINI, that’s all about personalization, the idea of sharing a a car seems foreign to most of us. That being said, this concept car still keeps true to MINI’s heart. That’s because it’s still personalized!

That’s right, MINI has added technology to this car to enable it to still be personalized while at the same time being shared between people. The exterior of the MINI Vision Next 100 will project a personalized greeting onto the ground next tto the car before opening its doors to welcome you in. Once you get inside the car, those little personalization touches don’t stop. The car would be able to talk to you using circles of changing lights (which we envision to be like a traffic light type of system, but who really knows at this point), and the MINI would even suggest new routes for your drive. Imagine a car telling you to go a different way and saving you loads of time on your ride to work, to the store, or home!

We love the direction MINI is going with all the new technology they have and can’t wait to see what else they have coming our way soon!

First Images of MINI Clubman Vision Gran Turismo Released

The first images have been released of the upcoming MINI Clubman Vision Gran Turismo virtual racecar. The Vision GT will be available to download in Gran Turismo 6, the popular racing game for PlayStation 3 that pits some of the sickest virtual cars imaginable—both real and imagined—against one another.

You can check out the sketches here to judge for yourself, but it’s safe to say that the MINI Clubman is one of the sleekest, most futuristic virtual cars yet.

This virtual car gets almost 400 horsepower, using all 4 wheels in an all-wheel drive system. And – the MINI Clubman can hit 60 mph from zero in just 3.5 seconds. Talk about a strong start right out of the gate.

Tragically, there are no plans for this virtual car to become a reality, but on the bright side, to use the vehicle in GT6, you won’t have to pay a price tag of hundreds-of-thousands-of-dollars. It’s available now as part of GT6’s most recent in-game update.
