this is the last Mini out of the 3,  with The s mods some are to make it more durable and some for your knex man's safety! the air bags are  2 switches at front discuised as lights when they are pushed, it pushes a rod to make the airbag push into driver, it clicks in after impact like in real life, and also you push light up and lights spring forwards with airbag. the video shows how the airbags work and the rest of the features like.....

AIRBAGS! can be modded for passanger and driver
optional extras like seatbelts! and 4 seats
takes only roughly about 525 K'nex peices
quite durable
interior with dials and curves

boot with lots of sace
moving seats
escape roof (in an emergancy)
original white mini roof
maching white floor
opening doors you (HAVE TO) use handle!
JELLY  SUSPENSION!

con's 2


when airbag isn't used the front lights look weird (becuase there pushed out)
the rubberband power is good but is as as powerful as k'nex moters therefore not powerful en-
ough but still does move a bit

                                                 The stats (out of five)
                
durability ****            4          gone down to 4 (becuase of airbags)
the looks   ****           4          gone down becuase the lights are pushed out when airbags aren't in use
features  *****          5          it is probably the most realistic k'nex car on this site.

no, i did not copy it,
yes, my mom dose have a mini cooper. :3
you know what.. this is excellent... 5* only thing for me, i think you should use bigger tires :) other than that, marvelous
Thanks =D I completly agree with the tires but I couldn't fit bigger ones becuase of the small wheal arches, the airbag rods also would get close to the wheals if I were to
ooh yeah it does have small wheel archs... but i still love it though
