when we received the press release relevant to the Mini’s Scissor Doors we were like ok, ha ha. Look I’m laughing…. good job marketing guys.
Nice April’s fool after all.
But please consider seriously this option for a moment.
Think about the opportunity just around the corner.
We did so. And that’s the scenario you would deal with:
Mini is going to sell this “Scissor Doors” as option for its model range. MINI hatchback, MINI Paceman, MINI Cabrio, MINI Clubman and next MINI Countryman (starting with the model year 2017) can have this option for 1,959.00 euro only. (Roughly 2,231.59 $)
Marketing guys highlight the new parking opportunities, and a comfy entrance into the car…but as we said: let’s be honest. All of us knows what scissor doors are meant for: to strut around!
This new accessory is safety compliant and everything, thanks to the hard work of the engineers (Folks, it features also a pyrotechnical emergency opening system known as ‘Pyrotechnic Emergency Exit’, or PEE for short if you like the abbreviations)
But above everything, the Mini Scissor Doors will solve a social plague.
It would allow billionaires to drive a comfortable compact car during the daily downtown shopping.
As you know in fact, billionaires can’t drive cars with normal compass-like open doors mechanism.
A member of the 3 commas club (people who has at least 3 commas on his bank account) shall drive only cars with gullwing doors, falcon doors, and last but not least, scissors doors. Due to this, nowadays citizens are everyday more concerned about the growing number of “noisy” Lamborghini Aventador, McLaren P1, Ferrari LaFerrari, Pagani Huayra etc. crowding the already congested neighborhood roads.
This problem could find a solution thanks to you, Mini.
Just think about that.
