Pitch up, look sharp: camping goes up in the world

Mini gets serious camp appeal with its new pop up roof-rack tent that can sleep two adults. Just hit the open road and stop and sleep where the mood takes you.

Made by tent specialists Autohome, the pop up tent means you can literally park up anywhere and pop off to sleep, perfect for those who want to spend the weekend outdoors hiking or walking and don't fancy roughing it on the ground. It also pairs with the plug-in hybrid Mini (AKA the Mini Cooper SE Countryman ALL4).

Pop up the new glamping tent for the Mini Countryman

Sleeping in the car has suddenly got a whole lot more appealing

Your glamping home for the night can be attached to the Mini Countryman without any tools, it attaches to roof rails and looks just like a hardshell box, until it's opened when you're ready to bed down and voila, you've got a seriously swanky way of camping.

It's a roomy home for two with a decent mattress, mosquito nets, two zipped windows and doors, a battery operated interior light and nets to store all your overnight items. There's even a ladder.
