The Peninsula turned 81 on Friday and it decided to forgo stuffy ostentation for something a bit more hip. At a morning ceremony, the grand hotel unveiled two additions to its vehicle fleet, but not Rolls-Royce Phantoms. Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels (which owns the hotel) rolled out two Mini Clubmans in Brewster 'Peninsula' green. The two cars, tricked out to the Pen's specifications, will provide a complimentary service zipping suite guests around town. On hand for the occasion was the hotel chain's boss, Sir Michael Kadoorie (pictured right, with Gert Hildebrand, Mini's design general manager), who spearheaded the project to bring something new to the institution. 'Even at 81, she is proving to be fully in step with the times,' he said. 'These Clubmans are small, fun and - this is a word I don't usually use - cool.' The rides include iPod/iPhone connections, a mini-fridge in the back seat and a mounted roof box to carry baggage and shopping. Now all you have to save for is a stay in one of the suites.
