Mini “MINI” Cooper RC Cars Used At 2012 Summer Olympics

BMW was one of the sponsors of the 2012 Summer Olympics and Mini Cooper is one of their brand names that they were hoping to market to the large audiences who tuned in this year. So to help them accomplish this task they provided three 1/4 Mini Cooper RC cars that were used for a variety of tasks like retrieving javelins, hammers and discuses that were thrown by competitors. These cars were specially equipped for these tasks and once the gear loaded was into the cars they were driven back to the judges to be used again.

  1. I don’t think these will be for sale since they were only used for marketing purposes.

  2. Can you see the guys above taking one of those “quarter pounders”, putting in a couple of 6S LiPos to power some insane 50,000,000 kv brushless and doing gymkhana? I can’t wait for the videos.

  3. Where can. Bu one

  4. Aww man I was really hoping for more information and under body pics.

  5. Is there more information on these little workers?
