Olympics use mini Minis for javelin, discus retrieval (Why not just throw them back?)


Autoblog:

Dubbed “Mini MINI,” these three electric R/C Cooper hatchbacks are rendered in about 1/4-scale – necessary to ensure adequate payload capacity for up to eight kilos (nearly 18 pounds). That’s enough carrying capacity to lug around a hammer, a discus, a shot or a pair of javelins. The cars’ large scale also helps them pack the larger battery arrays that Mini says are necessary to run them for 35 minutes (before being down for 80 minutes of charge time). The models are painted blue with orange Olympic livery and white roofs, and they even have working headlights.
