No Hoverboard? MINI Thinks It Has The Next Best Thing

Just in time for the end of summer.

Whilesome automakers are becoming involved with futuristic projects like Lexus' insanehoverboard, Mini didn't want to be left behind and has released images anddetails regarding its own board project. But to keep things more simple, the companyhas chosen to focus on the present. "The Mini", developed incollaboration with Channel Island Surfboards, is a miniature surfboard that's supposed to reflect Mini's cars and the company's character: the carmaker says it offers a versatile design that performs well under a wide range ofconditions.

To ensure that, the Mini offers an "ultra-relaxedrocker, wider nose, wider squash tail, thinned rails, and aggressive single todouble concave with vee out the tail". Just like the company's cars, theboard can be customized and is available in a wide range of color combinations. At $894, it's probably cheaper than most options and accessories you could addon to anything in the company's lineup.
