Mini barges in to the London motor show
11 July 2006

Mini owners visiting the British motor show next week will be able to enjoy a floating hospitality area just for them.

The Mini Barge is a specially constructed area exclusively for owners, who can gain access by showing the key to their Mini. The Barge has three sundecks, three bars and a games den.

UK Mini owners have been sent an e-mail inviting them to the show, while the 20,000 owners who live closest to Excel have had information packs in the post.

Mini also has a show stand, where it will be displaying the Mini Concept, a Mini GP and the full model line-up.
