Hold on tight…
I was most lucky to have the MINI ICON02 demonstrator for 5 days while Sulley was at Mulgari for a couple of mods.
As soon as I drove off it reminded me of the go kart feel of the GP2. There is a lot of horse power under the bonnet making it a very powerful and responsive car. With the quality upgrades inside, like the colour co-ordinated seatbelts, stitching on the seats and the flat bottom steering wheel, these give it a luxury feel when driving it.
The car from the outside is a real head turner, there were a few people at work who mentioned it to me. Even the postman said what a “beast of a car” it was.
