MINI Convertible Sidewalk Makes World Debut at NAIAS

The MINI Convertible Sidewalk will make its world debut at NAIAS 2007 while the second-generation MINI Cooper and Cooper S have their North American premiere in Detroit.

The MINI Convertible Sidewalk, available in spring, is an exclusive package on both the MINI Cooper Convertible as well as the MINI Cooper S Convertible at a cost of $4,000. For other international markets, the MINI Sidewalk Convertible will be sold as an individual model.

The Sidewalk package offers an exclusive look, featuring special light-alloy wheels, attractive interior surface trim and leather upholstery developed specifically for the package. In addition, the package comes with a host of options and equipment bundled together to offer more exclusivity, substance and value.

The Cooper Sidewalk includes 16-inch bridge spoke wheels and sport seats. The Cooper S Convertible Sidewalk includes 17-inch Night Spoke wheels and Xenon headlamps. The package for both models comes with English leather sport seats in an exclusive malt brown color and Sidewalk interior surfaces and graphics. The steering wheel comes wrapped in special Sidewalk sport leather and is integrated with multi-function controls including cruise control. Rounding out the package options are Dynamic Stability Control, Chrome Line interior trim, a center armrest and a Harmon/Kardon sound system.

MINI already has announced that its all-new second-generation MINI Cooper and Cooper S hardtops will make their North American debut at the NAIAS 2007. The new MINI Cooper and Cooper S hardtops build upon the design success of the first generation MINI models. They have been updated in a way that is evolutionary in design and revolutionary in substance. And a wide range of engine, transmission, chassis and steering innovations give the all-new MINI an impressive level of sportiness and agility.

The pair boast brand-new, aluminum-alloy four-cylinder engines with increased power and performance. The 1.6-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine in the MINI Cooper develops a maximum of 118 horsepower and 114 foot-pounds of torque. This propels the car to 60 mph in 8.5 seconds, reaching a top speed of 126 mph.

The new MINI Cooper S is powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that provides 172 horsepower and 177 foot-pounds of torque in a range from 1,600 to 5,000 rpm. The Cooper S reaches 60 mph in 6.7 seconds and has a top speed of 139 mph.

Despite their greater power and performance, the engines are even more fuel-efficient than before. Most notably the MINI Cooper with a manual transmission achieves 40 miles per gallon in highway driving according to the latest EPA testing.

 

A Quick Note From Our Founder –

Over the past few years I’ve taken a very special interest in helping people reduce the amount of inflammation in their bodies. Please take a moment to read Thomas DeLauer’s incredible story and how he was able to completely rid his body of dangerous inflammation.

Thank you!

Proline Expert Thomas DeLauer’s 7-Day
Anti-Inflammatory Reboot

Inflammation is holding us back in so many ways, and no one is really explaining it to us. All we know is that it’s “bad,” but no one wants to tell us about how it’s keeping us from losing weight and how it’s making us feel like garbage. Mainly because the food lobbyists don’t want us to dip into their profits when we find out that inflammation is caused by most of the so-called healthy foods that we are eating now!

IMPORTANT: My results are not typical. As with any weight loss program, your results may vary greatly.

When I was 275lbs and struggling with my weight, the last thing that I thought about was inflammation causing my problems… I had always resorted to the basics… simple calories in vs. calories out to lose weight, BUT that was NOT the case here. There was something bigger at play because I was literally doing everything that I was ‘supposed’ to do.

Meanwhile, my wife was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease that effected her thyroid (hashimoto’s) and later, Lyme disease. It was the serendipitous timing of this that made me realize that inflammation might be playing a larger role then I had thought. I’m sure many of you have heard of these diseases, and the scary thing is that they can be affecting you and you might not even know it!

To make a very long story short, I began learning about inflammation, using my resources within the healthcare industry to dive into some heavy research on how inflammation works and how it could be holding my wife and I (and others) from living the lives that we wanted to live. Like so many others, it’s easy to not even realize you’re being held back.

I found that inflammation can cause all kinds of issues in the digestive tract making it so that you’re not absorbing nutrients. This was a HUGE step, because I WAS eating healthy, but I couldn’t lose weight at all! So when I realized that there were specific “health foods” that I was eating that were causing this to happen, it all made sense….

If you’re not absorbing nutrients, then you body goes into starvation mode and that means that you will store fat! It’s a simple survival mechanism! This was the code that needed to be cracked! I needed to find a way to reduce the activity of the COX-1 enzyme and the production of prostaglandins (a fancy way of saying ‘how inflammation is caused”)

But the difficulty was finding a way to rid my body of the inflammation so that I could begin absorbing nutrients again. And back then, this was a long drawn out process, simply because the science wasn’t really there at the time. Most of us don’t really have the time or the energy to devote to experimenting with different foods to find what works for them.

Well, I did reduce my inflammation, and I was able to get back on track and ultimately become on author on this very topic, but it took a lot of time.

So over the past six months, using my experiences and my research I have developed a way to reduce inflammation within the body and to help the body absorb nutrients again, all with a WHOLE FOODS approach. As someone that has been in the healthcare industry before, I wanted to make sure this was a down-to-earth way to reduce inflammation.

Anyhow, it has been awesome to see how many people have been having success and not just reducing inflammation, but truly losing weight and kick starting their new lives feeling utterly amazing!

I want to invite you to take a look at the full protocol and the actual program and steps that you need to take right here

Just seeing some of the pain being lifted from people and seeing them realize what had been causing them so much grief before…
