    The new MINI film you see above is a teaser for the launch of the new MINI Coupe and leads into a new MINI campaign; “Another Day. Another Adventure.” The film features driving scenes shot in Rio de Janeiro, Iceland and Hong Kong.

    The reveal film, shot in the style of a movie trailer, previews three new MINI commercials set to air from September on. César Charlone, the Oscar-nominated cameraman behind “City of God”, gave the Rio spot a unique feel as you’ll see above.

    Look for this campaign to mostly show up in international advertising starting this fall.

    I like the Countryman and not the Coupe. Others feel the complete opposite and some don't like either one. I think MINI is being smart to come out with several different models, as each appeals to a market segment that would otherwise be lost to them. :Thumbsup:

    Jim in my demented mind you have it bass ackwards. That countryguy R60 is a real odd duck. While the coupe even with its odd roof is a MINI.

    It looks like they may have lost it on the sharp right hand turn on the cobblestones in the down hill Rio shot. Looks like they maybe did a 180, but cut it short on the video.

    Hah, can't show handling issues, now can we......

    But the Countryperson, to me, looks like MINI, only slightly larger. The Coupe looks like a MINI front end and I have no idea what the back is. I'll not mention the top line. Now, the Roadster is one neat looking vehicle. :cornut:

    None of the lastest pics I've seen show the color matched wheels, like the ones in the beginning..
    Wonder if that is off the sheet now???
