MINI Tokyo Concept

The MINI Tokyo Concept that debuted yesterday at the Tokyo Motor Show is one of those cars where it's obvious that nothing was held back in the planning stages. I imagine many a meeting went something like this:

MINI designer #1: "I really like Earl Grey tea, we should put that on the car somewhere."
MINI designer #2: "Lets just turn one of the rear windows into a storage compartment for tea."
MINI designer #1: "Will that hurt the car's side-impact crash rating?"
MINI designer #2: "It's perfect for side-impact crashes. While you're waiting for the police to arrive you can have a spot of tea to calm your nerves."
MINI designer #1: "Good point, I'll design it in CAD right now."

All the press pics of the MINI Tokyo Concept after the jump.

The Tokyo Concept is a modern interpretation of classic Mini Traveller and it experiments with access and storage solutions for important stuff like, you know, tea. The roof system does not contain a Doppler radar as it would appear, but rather a table and two chairs, and the rear cargo box can be removed and attached to the side window for a place to set your Earl Gray.
