Orange You Glad I Posted This MINI?

WorldCarFans highlights this modded R56 in hot orange in an extensive photo gallery and says, in part:
Cam Shaft in collaboration with PP-Performance have worked on a previous generation MINI Cooper S.

Their first priority was to cover the car's original paint with a shiny orange body wrap featuring a pearl effect and complemented by the glossy black roof while the wheel arches have a matte black look. The price of all these visual tweaks is somewhere in the region of 1,900 EUR but the ATS 17-inch alloy wheels, 215/45 R17 Toyo semi slicks and KW variant 2 coilovers are not included.

Cam Shaft & PP-Performance also fiddled with the 4-cylinder, 1.6-liter turbocharged engine as its output was increased from the series 184 PS (135 kW) to 240 PS (176 kW) by installing a custom exhaust system priced at 1,899 EUR. The added oomph was also possible by remapping the motor's software and using a different air inlet with sports air filter.
