Check out this electric MINI towing a Boeing 777 airplane!


These stunts will never get old, would it? In fact the “David vs Goliath” effect might never lose it lustre – we’ll never get bored of seeing the little ones overcome the mighty.

Proving that MINI is just in the name, BMW Group in collaboration with Lufthansa flexed the muscles of the first ever electric-powered MINI, the Cooper SE, in their latest publicity stunt – towing a 150-tonne Boeing 777 freight aircraft.

The MINI Cooper SE will go into production by November 2019 and is only the second purely electric vehicle after the BMW i3.

The new electric MINI is said to share the same powertrain as the BMW i3, with around 170 hp and 250 Nm of torque – a slight dip from the BMW i3s recently launched in Malaysia.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
