Unveiled at the Essen Motor Show, this MINI E in police guise is the creation of german tuning shop AC Schnitzer. Why make MINI E into a faux police car? It’s part of a safe tuning campaign put on by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Transport and the german tuning community. Basically, the home of the autobahn wants people to trick out their rides, but still keep them safe and legal. The MINI E in the video features customized bodywork and interior details. Will the german smokies order up a fleet of electric MINIs? Probably not, but at least now the tuners at AC Schnitzer can impersonate police officers with a minimum carbon footprint.
