Denis Simachëv x TopCar MINI Cooper S
We love customized MINIs like we love air, so seeing a street art-inspired one from Russia made our hearts go all aflutter. Prepared in a strict limited run of 25 unique cars, the Russian artist Denis Simachëv and Russian tuner TopCar will create each car as a wholly unique vehicle.
The white one, called “Bully,” was a desire to “break the stereotype that MINI is mostly a girl’s car.” Simachëv says:
“This car is created for a real ‘bully’ that is fond of easy money. He likes socializing and is desperate to attend fashionable gatherings and parties. A real ‘party animal’, he is just fooling around and looking for an adventure.”
We love the car, and don’t get what they mean. Maybe Ed Hardy shirts haven’t made it to Russia.
To check out more photos of the “Bully,” plus #2 in the series, “Moscow” (adorned with traditional Russian ‘Khokhloma’ paintings) hop past the jump.
