The 2014 Fifa World Cup is just around the corner and fans have already started preparing for the biggest sporting event of the year. As expected, demand for jerseys and flags has risen by multiple folds and it is going to increase further in the months to come.
The auto industry is just as excited for the event as any football fan is and since it is the most popular sport in the world, carmakers are preparing for the event in their own unique ways. Paying homage to the beautiful game of soccer, MINI has introduced the MINI Paceman GoalCooper, a special edition car equipping a range of features and a unique livery.
Based on the MINI John Cooper Works Paceman, the special model was designed by MINI Design Team supervised by Oliviero Weilinho who came up with an exclusive Danielson multi-coloured livery which uses yellow, green and blue.
The interior of the car is fully loaded with exclusive additions such as Brasileiro Green astro turf floor mats, MINI LED interior lighting package, live web stream, a universal smartphone holder at front, Apple iPad holder at rear, a miniature table football set, foldable rear seatbacks, Astro Turf boot and more.
The seats at the rear can be folded down to turn the boot into a football goal which features a net attached to the rear of the front seats. The Park Distance Control (PDC) sensors work in conjunction with the interior alarm system sensors to register a shot on the goal. On registering so, the tailgate is instantly closed and reflects the ball and keeps the box clean.
This interesting game can be played for 90 minutes after which the whistle blows and the score is transmitted to the iPad, which is inside the MINI, via MINI Paceman GoalCooper MINI Connected App, a special app developed for the car. The same results can also be compared with other users who have registered themselves online.
At the end of the tournament, MINI will also announce a MINI Community World Champion trophy that will go the person with the top spot in the table. The car will be officially presented on April 1 along with other details.
