The 2012 Olympic Games will begin next year and the city of London will be hosting with plenty of splash of British culture.
On the car front that means Mini, traditionally a British brand but now the funky child of BMW who is sponsoring the international event, will get to do some serious showcasing.
So that calls for a Mini Cooper London 2012 Edition available in the three colours of the Union Jack and in this example of English patriotism, parked on a grassy verge with Tower Bridge as a backdrop.
In a smooth long jump attempt by athlete J.
Jegede, the models get their video debut on the net.
We can all cope with being British for a while, but especially if you manage to get your hands on one of the 2012 units that will be sold.
The Mini Cooper London Olympics edition will be sold at a price of between 17,800 and 20,860 pounds and will come with a white roof and the London 2012 Olmpic Games logo.
