Mini Beachcomber @ 2010 Detroit Auto Show Video: 2010 DETROIT AUTO SHOW NAIAS HIGHLIGHTS VIDEO: More Articles: Car Prices & Info: Twitter Feed: Facebook Page: Hi-Res Videos: side-line Saying it wants to leave behind "all conventional standards," Mini on Wednesday previewed the all-wheel-drive Mini Beachcomber Concept, which strips away such elements as the doors and roof, just in time to provide a bit of warm-weather whimsy for the 2010 Detroit Auto Show. The new concept "does without doors, a conventional roof and all other body elements which might possibly limit the intensity of the occupants' encounter with their surrounding world," said Mini in a statement. The Beachcomber Concept takes its inspiration from the Mini Moke of the 1960s. As Mini recalls in its rollout of the new concept, the Mini Moke "was made up of hardly more than a floorpan, wide sills at the side, the engine compartment lid and the windscreen."
