MINI launches two new models
As the 50th anniversary of MINI, it means that they will show two new concept cars to the public at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. The Coupe and Roadster concept cars known as the "Oxford twins" left a deep impression at today's exhibition.
I’ll be honest with you...the press release MINI sent out today regarding these cars was 58 pages long; I’m not joking. I’m not going to read the whole thing like I do most of these releases, but I have the important stuff regarding the Coupe and Roadster...
The Coupe Concept interests me the most, so I’ll write about it first. I’ve never been a big fan of MINIs. I don’t deny the cool-factor, and I understand why their owners love them so much, they’re just not for me. The Coupe Concept looks cool and gives a more sporting appearance to the car than the current model.
MINI focused on lightweight construction and removed the two rear seats, along with a sloped roofline and raked windshield for improved aerodynamics and style. The Coupe Concept sports the same 1.6-liter turbocharged engine producing 211 hp found in the Cooper.
There really isn’t much to say about the Roadster Concept. It’s basically a Coupe with a chopped top. The interior is wood-trimmed instead of carbon, and it includes a pointless display that shows you how long you’ve been driving with the top down.
The press release did not provide any release date or price, so please continue to pay attention to the release of this information. Of course these are just concepts, and they may not even be produced.
