A human-powered Mini


Ride the hutongs in style

Mini is one of the sponsors of The Other Blog, which focuses on art, design, and internet trends.

The trendy car company has brought one of its new models to Beijing’s streets in the form of a custom pedicab. “The Other Rickshaw,” as the blog post calls it, is one part of a promotional campaign for the new Mini Clubman.

Manufactured in Germany and cut open in Hong Kong, the car was then shipped to Beijing, where it was remade into a tricked-out sanlunr to prowl nighttime hotspots like Houhai and Sanlitun.

There are lots more photos at The Other Blog, including a shot of a special double-decker bus-turned-accessories store that’s on a twenty-city tour of mainland China.
