ACI Composites Inc. from Lancaster, PA, constructed the water bound spectacle from fiberglass and mounted onto a boat hull. They then proceeded to deck out the replica with authentic Mini accessories (wheels, tires, grille, badges, steering wheel, etc.).

The Mini will be the only powered vessel on the waters and will serve as safety control for the thousands of rowers participating in the HOCR. The competition is said to draw 9,000 of the world’s best rowers and achieve well over 300,000 spectators. The race will take place October 20 and 21 starting at Boston University Boathouse and finish at Christian Herter Park.

Rodrez: It’s the measuring stick that offers as much speculation and attempts to discredit driver achievement as it does real-world data and raw, obsessively focused attempts to chip away at the clock. The Nurburgring serves as a standard by which most automakers set their sights. It arms internet debate specialists with numbers and comparisons by

It’s safe to say that Angel Pena, owner of this supercharged 2008 Acura TSX, has a “type.” Having been enamored with Acura’s entry-level sedan ever since it was first introduced, he knew right away he’d get his hands on one, and eventually, he did just that.
