Now that the demand for the
new MINI 3 door and the new MINI 5 door is all what matters, the production of
two model variants from the preceding generation of the original in the premium
small car segment is about to come to an end. The two individual two-seater
athletes MINI Coupé and MINI Roadster will finish their career together and as
The MINI Coupé was originally
launched in the "Green Hell": the new model saw its world premiere at
the 24-hour race on the Nürburgring Nordschleife immediately before its
appearance at the Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA) in 2011. The MINI
John Cooper Works Coupé Endurance tackled the challenge with flying colours,
underpinning not just the sporting qualities but also the reliability of the
very first two-seater in the MINI model range. Ever since then the MINI Coupé
has provided thrilling and intense go-kart feeling with its powerful engines,
specific suspension set-up, low centre of gravity and a rear spoiler that
extends automatically at high speeds. Perfectly matching its driving
properties, the car's unmistakable roof shape with integrated spoiler and flat
silhouette give the MINI Coupé an aura that is both athletic and distinctive.
The British premium
manufacturer was able to conquer an attractive vehicle segment with the MINI
Roadster, too. The first open-top two-seater in the brand's history has a
textile roof which opens especially quickly, either manually or
semi-automatically as an optional extra. What is more the MINI Roadster – like
the MINI Coupé – offers an impressive degree of functionality with its spacious
luggage compartment complete with through-loading option.
