Mini's talking Mission Control system – Click above to watch video after the jump

We're hoping Mini knows a lot of things that we don't, because we don't understand – like, at all – how a brand with a Swiss bank account full of hip could have done something so awfully, terribly unhip. We're talking about Mission Control, which "evaluates a vast range of vehicle, driving situation and vehicle environment-related signals and supplies the driver with relevant information and instructions in customary MINI style."

Car and Driver drove one of the Mini 50 Camden Editions on which the system debuted, and it sounds like "customary Mini style" is another way of saying "OMG WTF?" Follow the jump to hear it. And someone, anyone – please let us know what this is about. Hat tip to Scott!
