Mini Beachcomber video

Mini's new 4x4 Beachcomber concept has appeared in a video from the Detroit motor show that delves a bit deeper into the car's detail.

The video shows a range of features such as a dashboard-mounted compass, a rear-mounted lockable compartment in the spare-wheel box and, wait for it, plastic palm-tree decorations. It also reveals the Beachcomber's dune-tackling off-road mode, which is illustrated on the classic Mini central instrument dial.

Mini will not be putting the Beachcomber into production, but the styling hints heavily at the look of the upcoming Countryman SUV that the brand will be selling from autumn 2010.
