Mini has announced their latest vehicle, the Mini Cooper T, which is powered by a new bio fuel which is made from tea leaves.
According to Mini, the Mini Cooper T can travel for up top 40 miles on a single cup, and it will be available in a range of special editions, which include a Chamomile Yellow’, ‘Red Bush’ and ‘Earl Grey’ model.
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.”
