BMW has decided to build two new Mini cars model at its factory near Oxford in south central England. If you know how to build a mini caror if you had ever watched the video of how a Mini was build, it is really fantastic. The British government has welcomed BMW’s decision to build these new Mini models that unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show during 17th – 27th September 2009. Well, this is definitely great news for British car workers.

The Mini 50 Celebration is almost reached an end when year 2009 is ending, but this news had brought all the mini lovers a great new hope to wait for the new production. BMW’s chief executive Norbert Reithofer said it will mean new jobs and investments at the facility.

The new models – a two-seater coupe and another model, a convertible/open-top version unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The front face is still keeping the look of MINI Cooper which MalaysiaMiniLover believe it will at least roll for another 40 years? Both the coupe and open versions are still badged ‘concept’ at the Motor Show but it has confirmed both cars will be built in the UK. (see also weird Japanese concept car in the latest Tokyo Motor Show.)

MINI’s CEO describes the coupe’s roof as a ‘back to front baseball cap’ and despite that not being cool since 1992 Mini British Open. MINI unveiled the pair amid the razzmatazz of 50th Anniversary of the MINI celebration, isn’t it cool?

New technology build to the new Mini

The Roadsters gets a new ‘Buddy Radar’ that will alerts drivers when other Roadsters are close, this is just like the classic Mini horn to each other when seeing other same classic Mini on the road. The radar can also measure driver’s heartbeat and warn of an imminent cardiac arrest.

The Mini plant is one of Britain’s largest car factories. Currently it employs 3,500 people and since demand has picked up recently is operating close to its capacity of 220,000 cars a year (source from euronews.net). Can you imagine 220,000 mini cars were built in a year?:)
