The vehicle will start its tour on November 25, and will be driven around the UK by project creator Nicholas ‘Nico’ Martin who first took the initiative to hand-wrap his MINI in LED lights three years ago. In December 2020, he realized that his colourful MINI could be used to bring joy and positivity to people while also raising money for charities that are important to him.
