Japan has always been big on the Mini, both original and modern, so it's no surprise that BMW is bringing a new Mini concept to the Tokyo show, one designed to reflect a "Japanese appreciation of all things British."
This is a quick redo of the hit Mini station wagon concept from the Frankfurt auto show, featuring new wheels, a recolored interior, and indicator lights sporting the Union Jack. The Tokyo version features a small, round, roof-mounted table, plus two chairs, for impromptu picnics ("and weary guests at cricket matches") and a cargo box at the rear that can be taken out and attached the side window, to create a table ("for serving tea and scones.") As the Brits might say, "Jolly good show."
