    Schmidt Revolution, a German-based company that primarily specializes in alloy wheels but occasionally presents fully tuned projects, has unveiled its latest creation, a conceptual version of the MINI Clubman Cooper S called the "Streetworker".

    The focus point of the tune is of course the German firm's new Cirrus alloy wheel series, seen here in an 18-inch version. The funky looking rims can be ordered in any color ranging from the matte blue on this tune to any other tint including carbon black. On the MINI Clubman project car the alloy wheels are shod in 215/35R18 Continental rubber.

    Having solved the alloy wheel riddle, Schmidt Revolution went ahead and covered the MINI Clubman in a matte blue foil wrap and a contrasting matte black roof finish and trim detailing.

    The concept car's low-rider appearance is achieved by the Streetec air suspension, which allows the driver to lower the ride height by 60 mm or increase it by 40 mm over the stock model.

    The tune is finished off with an engine kit that lifts output to 200HP and 250Nm of peak torque.

    Not my taste but the name amuses - do you suppose they know one meaning of that word in British English? The nicest equivalent I know comes from author Terry Pratchett - "lady of negotiable affection".

    I like it. At least it is designed around a theme and not just a hodgepodge of exterior mods.

    A bit large for me, but overall not a bad looking wheel. Now if Octaneguy can just get that paint to shine. If you get a flat you will become a streetwalker.

    Wheels look like a real fun job to keep clean.

    Wheels do nothing for me, look like they were fashioned after one of those tunnel drilling things... The rest of the car isn't to bad and the stance is very nice.

    The goldish lettering on the tires is a nice touch.

    Not my style either. I'm not sure what has happened to poor schmidt. They used to make some amazing wheels. Now it seems like their designers have gone a bit off the deep end.

    Poor execution of air suspension as well. Not even tucking tires on 18s?:crazy::frown2:
