2012 Mini Coupe




Even though these pictures are ‘official”, the car still have quite a bit of camouflage.
But you can guess through most of it, and actually see what the real thing will look like.
Which is pretty much similar to the concept from 2 years ago.

And I think this is one of the problems of the car. We’ve seen this design for 2 years. An all new “regular” Mini is coming out about a year after this. Which means this coupe will be based on the previous generation. Looking rather old.
On top of looking a bit strange already.

I am not sure the Mini designs lends itself well to a 2 seater car in the first place.
The rear is still a hatchback, which seems a bit weird.
A convertible version s coming out as well, competing mostly with the Mazda Miata. Itself being redesigned very soon…

This is the original concept from 2009.

  1. whats with rear section of the rood, is that suppose to carry some sort of function like a t-top? if not then it's just weird in an ugly way

  2. I like it! Kinda looks like a bulldog wearing a hat. I'm sure that there will be some great ways to customize it.

  3. I'm still trying to understand the purpose of this…

    So this is just going to be a "last gen" Mini by the time it comes out which basically takes out what ever space the regular hatch had. I assume this is only meant to seat 2.
