Will be irrelevant on either April 2nd or July 14th.
Whether it is an April Fools’ prank or an elaborate publicity stunt, this special edition MINI Pacemen World Cup GoalCooper edition is preposterous. Honoring the Brazilian hosts of the upcoming FIFA World Cup, the car is completely revised inside and out in the colors of the host-country’s flag. It also includes numerous soccer-oriented special features, including stadium-like LED floodlights, “Mexican wave” seats and a miniature football set in the center console.
The interior also features grassy astro turf trunkliners and floor mats, and the entire rear tailgate is also coated in astro turf, allowing it to become a makeshift goal. This April Fools’ prank is likely never to make it into production, but even it did – wouldn’t buyers feel foolish being stuck with it on July 15th, after the games end?
