To celebrate the 2 millionth MINI to roll off their assembly line, MINI has decided to turn it into a special edition convertible and offer it up as a prize to their fans on Facebook. From now until September 30th, 2011, MINI fans have the opportunity to upload their profile photo to MINI’s 2 Million Faces page in order to automatically be entered into a drawing for the 2 millionth MINI giveaway.
The Mini 2 Million Convertible features a unique White Silver metallic paint job with a blue denim roof and a selection of bespoke interior and exterior options. Special wheels will adorn the outside along with “2 Million MINI” graphics while the inside will be outfitted with a distinctive leather steering wheel and lounge leather upholstery.

You’ll be fighting with your kids on who gets to use the MINI Cooper Convertible Inflatable beach toys next. One of the coolest promotional items we’ve seen in a while, these bad boys go from the sand to the water with the top down.
Created by Access Agency after the unveiling of the MINI Indoor Drive-in cinema for the new Countryman in Italy, these inflatables look like they may be a bit too big for the pool, but perfect for lounging on the beach and water. We’d like to pull one behind a boat for some MINI tubing, and we’re pretty sure we’d draw more than a few looks from impressed (and envious) beach goers.
The beach toys are a great way for MINI to get across that they are a fun, cool brand. No word if they’ll be floating over to North America anytime soon, but if they do, you’ll find us lounging around and soaking up the sun (after a full day of blogging, of course).
What’s the coolest automotive brand promotional item you’ve ever seen or received? Let us know in the comments section below.
