For roughly the next two weeks, MINI has placed a photo box on Kurfürstendamm in Berlin where passersby are encouraged to pop in, select a car model and don one of four brightly-coloured headphones. The image taken is immediately projected onto Germany’s biggest video screen, granting instant fame to participants. No worries if you’re not physically in Germany, technology is so advanced now that you can use your webcam to get in on the action. And for those who want more than just vanity, participation offers up the chance to win your own custom MINI.
For the past couple weeks I had the opportunity to drive the 2011 Acura MDX. Not one to miss sharing the opportunity, I took friends wherever they needed to go. Normally I’m not a fan of mid-size SUV’s as they tend to drive bigger than they are but, the MDX is different. It drives like a sportscar. What impressed me most about the ride was the blindspot detector, and the entertainment/parking/map console whose screen as one friend put it was “better than my TV at home.” Parallel parking has never been easier.
EN-V stands for “Electric Networked Vehicle” and looks like a souped-up futuristic version of the Segway. Made by GM, the zero-emission, electric vehicle concept is targeted at those living in urban environments which by the time this vehicle would debut will be enormous.
If you’re around the NY Auto Show this weekend, be sure to check out Acura’s S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Recruitment Center. As the official vehicle of the upcoming movie THOR, the S.H.I.E.L.D. edition Acura TL will be on display. The car is equipped with custom features, including a sound cannon, and smokescreen. Visitors will also be able to create their own S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent badges. Visiting info after the jump.
