Mini has recently revealed some new details regarding their new Coupe sportscar, a car that will rival the likes of the VW Scirocco and Peugeot RCZ.
This car is based on the Mini Cabriolet, with adjustments made to its chassis, body and interior, in an attempt to make this car sportier and more fun to drive. The Coupe will be powered by BMW’s latest four cylinder engines. There will be a John Cooper Works version with 208bhp, derived from a turbocharged 1.6l petrol engine. There are also detuned versions of this 1.6l engine producing 120bhp for the normal Cooper model and 180bhp for the Cooper S model. There will also be a Cooper S diesel on offer, with 141bhp from a 2.0l that averages 61.7mpg.
The car has quite an eye catching design, with some nice touches to the exterior, like a fixed rear spoiler as well as a retractable one, that car be raised or lowered whenever needed. This car will make its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, and go on sale towards the end of this year.
