Can do 40 miles per cup

MINI is revolutionizing the automotive industry by introducing the world's first car that can run on a tea-leaf biofuel composite.

Out of nowhere, MINI's engineers, scientists and designers have come up with a new frugal model that can do 40 mpc (miles per cup). It's called the Cooper T and represents the first vehicle to be compatible with a tea-leaf biofuel composite and also comes as standard with an industry-first Dunk Avoidance Technology (DAT). The groundbreaking system doesn't allow anyone "from inserting biscuits into the MINI T's fuel tank in order to moisten their snacks."

MINI says the 2014 Cooper T will be available in several exterior paint schemes such as Earl Grey, Chamomile Yellow and Red Bush. The model goes on sale worldwide starting today, on Aprils Fools' Day, together with the MINI Paceman GoalCooper.

nhancing the company's sustainability credentials, MINI's scientists, engineers and product designers have unveiled the new MINI Cooper T - the world's first vehicle to be powered by a tea-leaf biofuel composite.

This revolutionary new model, which is available in a variety of colours including ‘Chamomile Yellow', ‘Red Bush' and ‘Earl Grey', is expected to cause a real stir in the motor industry when it's served up later this month.

Capable of covering up to 40 miles on a single cup, Cooper T certainly isn't what you'd call thirsty. It boasts all the standard features you would expect, such as VVT, ABS and DSC, but also benefits from DAT or Dunk Avoidance Technology. This ingenious filtration system stops peckish owners and opportunistic passersby from inserting biscuits into the MINI T's fuel tank in order to moisten their snacks.

Head of Cooper T engineering, Dr. Ivana Kuppa, said, "This particular project has been brewing for years. Our extensive research has shown that the nation's favourite drink is also an ideal biofuel. We already know good things come in small packages, but with Cooper T customers benefitting from up to 40 miles per cup, we are delighted to have the opportunity to bring this car to market."

MINI customers in the Gloucestershire area can get a first taste of the Cooper T at MINI Cotswold Gloucester on 1 April, where the vehicle will be displayed.
