The special technology built into Roadster that will alerts driver when other Roadsters are close. This is because the Mini and MINI has become a “Community Car” or “Club Car” rather than driving alone as a lonely driver.

It is special ever since 1964 when a small red Mini Cooper with white roof driven by Paddy Hopkirk proudly showed its tail lights to all other powerful sports cars.
