Mini Goes Back To Rally Roots With Countryman Untamed Edition
According to Mini, that too will be easy to install. It weighs around 127 pounds, so you’ll probably need a friend to get it onto the roof. From there, propping it up is easier, and assisted by gas springs. There’s also an aluminum ladder for easier ingress and egress. Inside, the Autohome-made tent has plenty of pockets and an overhead LED light for better visibility.
It’s also been sustainably made, in line with Mini’s new, greener vision. The roof tent is made from recycled PET bottles. Mini says each square meter of the tent is made from around five plastic bottles. The mattress included inside the tent is also made from ecological polyurethane.
Mini hasn’t said if you’ll be able to buy these attachments from the Untamed Edition piecemeal, and for now, no release date or pricing has been announced. Regardless, it’s a pretty cool camping setup that won’t take up a ton of space. Add a bit of a lift, and you’ve got yourself a recreation of rally Minis from old, which is another level of cool all its own.
