The Streetworker Mini by Schmidt Revoltion – Click above for high-res image gallery

Schmidt Revolution, a wheel manufacturer and tuning company in Germany, has gotten its hands on a Mini Clubman and turned it into... something else. While we kinda dig the matte blue wrap job with contrasting black fenders, we're not sold on the wheels – or much else. Regardless, this isn't just a "tune" of the all-go-no-show variety. Output on the Clubman was raised to 200 horsepower and 183 pound-feet of torque through unspecified means. That's more than a standard Clubman S, but it's a hair shy of a John Cooper Works-equipped car.

Hop the jump to read more about the air-ride equipped Streetworker and give it a look in the gallery below. Fair warning: The press release was translated from German, so the English is not perfect – but it is amusing.

The STREETWORKER from Schmidt Revolution

In a kind of competition from the Fiat 500, the Toyota IQ and others in its class, the Mini Cooper Clubman S prevailed with style and passion. In fact, the Schmidt Revolution, wheel manufacturer from Bad Segeberg, had taken on the task of providing a concept car with Urban Lifestyle tuning. With its Clubdoor, the engine and the concept of space, it is practically the perfect choice for this task.

The "genetically engineered" Mini, already equipped with a John Cooper Works Aerodynamic package, has been purchased in March 2010. With black xenon lamps including daytime running lights and after a performance increase to 200 hp and torque of 250 Nm – these two parameters allow the Clubman to reach a maximum speed of 220 km/h – the car is ready for city travel, at least for trips around the church tower.

The colors still harbored some problems in it, should the Mini yet actually be equipped with chrome foil. Rethinking was not easy for the men from A4M in Wuppertal; the BMW sprout has a matt blue car wrap, and then they returned back to immaculacy.
Street workers usually go a lot, so the "feet" and "shoes" require special attention The Cirrus wheels were decorated with colored multiplex material, so this fun car is never left unattended in city traffic. The really impressive 8Jx18H2 Cirrus rims have any of 3D-shaped multiplex patterns in matte blue; any tint of body color, from bright red to carbon black is possible at any style.

Cheap tires, causing annoying road noise, were changed with recapped 215/35R18 Conti tires, and the tire problem was solved. To allow for changing "obstacles" while impressive driving in city traffic, the concept car has a Streetec air suspension with press buttons which enables to adjust the height and make it 60 mm lower or 40 mm higher than the serial cars. The goal was to run over thresholds better and to park the Clubman easier.

Finally, it should also be mentioned that the spectacular rims are completely washable and thus are suitable for daily use.
So, that beautiful Urban Lifestyle can be a street worker...

      Apart from the wheels and the illegal window tint, I quite like it.

      Cut AB some slack guys......they had to get started on their 10-worst of 2011 list eventually.

        I am happy to know that I am not the only one who thinks the same thing.

        When I first saw the picture I thought it was a bad photoshop. What is with the black fender stripe.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Increase the toe-out and it'd look like someone stepped on it.

      ...then scraped it off their shoe.

      As a german I usually am proud of german engineering, but this thing is an abomination.
      • 4 Years Ago
      There just enough room to slip a fag paper between the top of the wheel and the wheel arch. So what country in world has roads that smooth that can accommodate such low suspension? certainly not here, that's for sure, ours are either full of speed bumps or pot holes!

      Well guys its basically a regular cabman s with the JCW aero kit. Other than the wheels, its basically a stock looking Clubman. Haters.

      looks like a hearse for a midget with no taste.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Right, because anything long with a hatch resembles a hearse. I tire of this claim.

      Its a STREETWORKER. I saw an INTERSTATEWORKER some years back on Interstate 10 in New Mexico. It was driven by a blond and a brunette running shotgun. Both appeared to be okay looking as they passed me at 80+.
