MINIs and money. It’s not the first thing we think of when it comes to MINIs but with eight consecutive “best resale value” awards from Kelly Blue Book, there are definitely worse places to stash your cash.

To demonstrate this point, the Greater Gotham (Tri-State) MINI dealers created a “money car” on display now through 9/17 at the NYC MotorExpo in the World Financial Center. The elaborate stunt uses real US currency and took over 11 hours to produce.

And to answer the obvious question, no we don’t know if that’s shatterproof glass.
