Bespoke MINI Cooper S Clubman

Bespoke MINI Cooper S Clubman

The Peninsula Shanghai has launched the hotel’s two new sporty MINI Cooper S Clubman cars. The stylish yet sporty vehicles combine impeccable handling with first-class elegance and comfort, making them ideal for exploring the city and navigating through Shanghai’s alluring nooks and crannies.

On the launch day of 28 March 2014, a bespoke MINI car cake, designed and created by Executive Pastry Chef Lisa Crowe and her team, was “driven” up to the stage of Salon de Ning by remote control.

Led by the two Peninsula bespoke MINI cars, a total of 17 MINIs, including a combination of Clubman and Countryman models in different colours, drove in convoy past the hotel entrance to the newly opened MINI Experience Centre. This four-storey building comprises an exhibition area, customised experience corner and merchandise store.

All 17 MINIs lined up in two rows with the lettering “PENINSULA SHANGHAI” clearly visible on top of the cars. A video camera was carried by a remote-controlled helicopter to capture all these stunning moments.

About The Peninsula Luxury Limousine Fleet
The MINIs are an exciting addition to The Peninsula Shanghai’s chauffeured fleet of luxury vehicles, which includes four bespoke Extended Wheelbase Rolls-Royce Phantom IIs, six BMW Peninsula Editions and an immaculately restored, 1934 Rolls-Royce Phantom II.

The MINI Cooper S Clubman cars continue a Peninsula Hotels tradition. In December 2009, The Peninsula Hong Kong celebrated its 81st anniversary with the addition of two MINI Cooper S Clubman vehicles to its fleet. In November 2010, The Peninsula New York and The Peninsula Chicago added to the bespoke MINI roll-out, and in January 2011, The Peninsula Tokyo introduced its new MINI to the Japanese capital.
