Getting to Know the MINI Roadster: the Ultimate Gallery

More than any MINI in recent history the Roadster is a car that needs personal contact to fully understand it’s value proposition. It happened to us the first time we saw the car. In person, its proportions and aggressively angled windshield combine to give the car a sleek and simple look that’s almost undeniably attractive and interesting. You can’t help but want to look at it closer.

While we can’t bring the car to you, we can give you the biggest Roadster photo gallery in the existence of the known universe. It also serves as a primer for a car that you’ll be seeing much more on this site as we gear up to take delivery of our long-term Roadster test car this June.

So kick back, grab a beverage and check out the galleries after the break.

    Just got my JCW Roadster and love it! Recaro seats, leather dash, JCW Package really make this car stand out. The low rumble of that engine along with the British styling adds something to this car that you just don’t see very often. It is like driving a Harley compared to a Suzuki.

    I love the Roadster, ‘cept with the top up.

    Never seen the UK launch pics before….what a gorgeous car.  Any idea if those pics are floating around online in higher resolutions?
