Editor's Pick

Mini found a sneaky way to get prospective customers in Singapore test driving its cars; help them out when their other car breaks down.

The auto brand teamed up with a tow truck company, and when people's cars broke down, they were offered a (free) Mini to drive home or to the garage, while their car was towed behind.
