MINI challenged DDB PARIS to find a smart way to drive more people to

the MINI Stores in Paris for them to book a test drive. However,

opening a new store in Paris is extremely costly, thus MINI had only 3

stores where people could experience the cars. We realized that the

only thing you need to sell a MINI is a MINI itself, so we came up

with a fun execution that literally transforms MINIs into⦠MINI


We created custom signage and transformed the MINI cars into actual

stores, complete with a salesman, brochures and opening hours. People

could âcome inâ the stores and take them for a ride, directly

experiencing the best part about MINI - the car itself. We opened 10

new stores (first in Paris and now to be deployed all over France)

multiplying the access points to the MINI brand and the number of test

drives. Additionally, wherever we parked a MINI Store, we immediately

branded the location as a MINI location â all for the price of a

parking ticket. For those who really wanted to, the MINI stores were

for sale themselves.

As a result, we changed the way a store should look like and added

another piece to the MINI universe, creating more buying opportunities

and a whole new business model that only MINI can propose.
