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.

Driven this week

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
