*Allow us to explain; Today’s post is a small version of a bigger version of a big version of a small car. See? It makes perfect sense!
OK, we’ll try again… This excellent Technic creation is a scale model of Mini’s largest model to date, the not-at-all-mini and actually quite large Countryman. The Countryman is itself a grotesquely swollen version of the ‘new’ New Mini, and the New Mini is of course a modern (read ‘larger’) re-interpretation of the original small British car from 1959. There you go; TLCB’s tenuous logic in action!
Back to the model, and it’s been built by falconluan of Brickshelf. It includes remotely controlled drive and steering, selectable all-wheel-drive, opening doors, hood and trunk, working suspension, and a transversely-mounted inline-four piston engine, which makes it one of the most thoroughly executed Technic Supercars of the year.
There’s a fittingly massive gallery of photos available, including several detail and component images, at Brickshelf via the link above – click the link above to make the jump.
