MINI Cabrio Photos Leaked

We knew it was bound to happen. While the press embargo from MINI implies not to release supplied press photos of the MINI Cabrio (yes Cabrio – not “Open”) until Tuesday February 10th a publication has gone ahead leaked a couple of them. Auto Visie, a publication from the Netherlands, sent out an email with two photos and a whole lot of information in Dutch about the Cabrio. This is very reminiscent to what happened with the BMW 5 series last year – and within hours everyone who had a auto related website had photos up.


p>Here are some bits of the Auto Visie article translated:

  • MINI will introduce two Cabrio only colors – Cool Blue and Hot Orange.
  • There will be three tops to choose from – black, green and blue.
  • The roof is fully automatic and closes in 15 seconds.
  • The sliding roof goes back a full 40cm and can be used at speeds up to 120km/h.

The official photos will come later this evening.

    Very cool indeed. I like the black and reddish leather interior, looks very sharp comboed with the exterior. Kind of like the lapis blue leather and the Indi Blue paint.

    The new hot orange color looks gorgeous! I also like the new Cooper '05 bumper treatment and the subtle and more refined chrome stripes front and back. The wheels are also cool too.

    I don't like the exposed hinges in the boot door…detract from the clean lines too much.

    Nice car. Still think it needs a solid roof :)

    I think those boot hinges would work better visually if they were reduced in size by at least one third.


    I agree, car is much better in a hard top. Still very cool though and it will sell well. I wonder if this will make the MINI considered more of a “girly” car among the public.
