Radio Controlled MINIs Used to Transport Olympic Equipment
These are the three scale Coopers radio controlled models that look just like the real cars but are used to transport javelins, discuses, hammers and other pieces of olympic gear.
The RS cars are powered by a 10 hp electric motor, measure 1,100mm (43.3 inches) and carry up to 8kg (18 pounds) of equipment.
"The MINI team was thrilled to be given this challenge to develop a vehicle with such an important and high profile role during the Olympic and Paralympic Games," commented Juergen Hedrich, Managing Director of MINI Plant Oxford.
