Oriental Mini Roadster

Mini recently revealed a new model, Mini Roadster. From the front, it looks like a normal Mini but this new car offers fewer seats, active rear spoiler and offers sportier handling. Anyway, I usual don’t write about new car, however Roadster’s YouTube video was shot in Istanbul. Therefore, I did not wish to skip this oriental video clip.
I think they were inspired by the Oriental Express :) From London to Istanbul.
