The original Mini is today the stuff of legend. The cheeky little car that captures the hearts of many and trophies of the world is still a very sought after machine. When BMW produced their Mini we weren’t sure about the styling or the dramatic increase in size but as a car it is a very solid piece of kit. Today Mini extends its line-up by one yet again with something we thought we would never see… A Coupe.
Based upon the Coupe concept this is the 2012 Mini Cooper Coupe, a two seater variant of the hatchback. There will be 3 variants of the car; Cooper, Cooper D and JCW. The car in the images is the JCW armed with a 1.6 litre twin-turbo producing 208BHP. That is enough to shoot the car to 62MPH from standing in 6.1 seconds and a top speed of 149MPH. A spoiler deploys for extra downforce at over 50MPH.
Prices start from just over £16,000 and sales begin this October.
