Two special Minis at New York Auto Show

Mini revealed two special cars at the New York Motor Show, in one case bringing back the original Mini from almost six decades ago, but with an electric powertrain, writes Brian Byrne.

That one was designed to foreshadow the all-electric new model Mini due for launch next year.

Also, a special Mini Countryman Panamericana shown is specially designed for extremely challenging routes. With its underpinnings taken from the brand's first plug-in hybrid vehicle, the Mini Countryman PanAmericana has been designed for a long-distance tour from North America to Tierra del Fuego, showcasing the power and durability of Mini's largest model.
