Red + White is the perfect colour combo for a mini. Good find.

that's an American Embassey vehicle..>A/F it just got in, it'll get new plates soon. It's easy bringing them over if u belong to an Embassey, as the embassey pays the entire import duty which why you see a lot of brand new CD plated vehicles...they buy them just before coming to India on assignment.
Minis r nice...my uncle has one in Cali, one of his weekend fun cars...love driving it!!! feels like an M800 on mega steroids!!!

OT: CD stands for Corps Diplomatice [french for diplomatic person]
in Mumbai i've seen CC what does that stand for?

in US they sell Mini Cooper in fully customised paintjob and some other options and people have done crazy sort of stuff with that.

they ask for 3 months and they will deliver the desired paint scheme.

but its a gud small car,hope u guys have liked it in "the Italian job" and of course Mr Bean movies LOL

BTW nice catch Tanveer
