A unique story of success is entering the next round: The MINI, the worldÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s best-selling small premium car, is entering its second model generation.
Making its world debut at the 2006 Paris Motor Show, the new MINI is really new in every respect five years after its predecessor entered the market. As the top performer in its class, the new MINI is making its way to the road with brand-new four-cylinder power units. And despite even better performance and sportiness, the new MINI is even more economical and fuel-efficient than its predecessor.
We cover Gabe’s review of the Kumho Ecsta SPT fairly well. We are overdue for a real live tire show and I’m working on getting one together as I type this. Watch for it sometime after Woof 100. Don’t forget our disappointment in the lack of a good online translator, a car that changes to a briefcase and moving sidewalks. We also spend a fair amount of time discussing the design of the R56.
If you are intested in listening in on Woofcast 100 and 101 as we record it, full details are posted here. It should be a good time and we can’t wait!
