As you probably know if you've been at a sporting event or a concert for more than 74 seconds, energy drink manufacturer Red Bull employs youthful-looking brand representatives to drive around passing out energy drinks in MINI Coopers that have their rear ends cut off to make room for giant display cans of Red Bull.

If you're like me -- in other words, you've seen these things driving around, and you've always kind of wondered what it would be like to have one, and also you have a tape measure shaped like a panda bear -- you'll probably be interested in this. Here's one of these Red Bull MINI Coopers, converted into pickup-truck form, with the giant Red Bull can on the back removed. Tell me this isn't awesome.

Offered by Ameri Motors in Philadelphia, this MINI Cooper is entirely silver, meaning it doesn't have the "Red Bull" logos you'll see all over the ones driven by the energy drink company. And since the can is gone from the rear, the only indication you'd have that this is a Red Bull MINI are the mounting points for the giant can on the roof and the trunk. Well, that, and the other cool feature: Instead of a hatchback or a cargo area, this MINI has little coolers in back where you can store Red Bulls.

Surprisingly, this MINI Cooper has a clean Carfax report, in spite of the fact that the roof has been lopped off. Better yet, it's covered just 45,000 miles since being sold new in May 2008, suggesting it's had a fairly easy life. And now it can continue that fairly easy life with you for just $7,995. Not bad for a part-MINI Cooper, part-pickup truck.
