Over 4 billion people watching and over 200 countries participating in the 2012 Olympics, BMW Group is sure to get the exposure needed to retain their spot as the number one luxury car maker in the world.

As the Official Automotive Partner of the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games, BMW Group has deployed 160 BMW 1 Series ActiveE coupes and 40 MINI Cooper E’s roaming around the streets of London. Tasks for the zero emission electric car fleet include transporting Olympic athletes and officials.

New bread of mobility. Measuring at 43.3 inches long 19.7 inches wide 15.7 inches tall is all the all electrical MINI Mini needs to get the job done at the 2012 London Summer Olympics. Serving the field in the track and field events, the miniature RC (radio controlled) car will help retrieve hammer, javelins (spears), discuses (disc-like objects), hammers, and shots from the tossing zones.

A total of 3 MINI Minis Built to London Organizing Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) specs to insure effective time saving benefits during the games. Load capacity of 17.6 lbs (8kg), consisting of one of the following: hammer, discus, two javelins, or a single shot. After 35 minutes of constant use, a full re-charge is achieved in 80 minutes.

If the MINI Mini does not inspire another Austin Powers movie, then what will?
