2013 MINI Cooper Coupe S

MINI confirmed earlier this month that the R58 Coupe and R59 Roadster will end their production run in the coming months. The question that came to mind when the news broke was what will be next after the Twins are gone? According to our colleagues at Autocar, not much. continued →

What was just a whisper a couple of months ago, is now a reality. Today MINI is announcing the impending end of production for the R58 Coupe and R59 Roadster. As you may remember, MotoringFile is quite fond of the Twins, to the point that we awarded the Roadster the title of best commuter car ever. Since we don’t know if they will ever be replaced, it is with mixed feelings that we see these two go. On the other hand and given how much love they have received from enthusiasts, it would not surprise us if they turned into sought-out collectors’ items in the near future. On a more positive note, if the Superleggera ever hits production, it would surely make for a worthy replacement. Godspeed, Coupe and Roadster.

Official Release: Changeover at MINI Plant Oxford: while worldwide demand for the new MINI 3 door and the new MINI 5 door launched a few months ago increases continuously, production of two model variants from the preceding generation of the original in the premium small car segment is about to come to an end. continued →

2013 MINI Cooper Coupe S

The longterm MotoringFile JCW Roadster won the hearts of all who drove it until it recently left the MotoringFile Garage to make way for its new big brother, the 2014 Cooper S hardtop. As much adoration as has been heaped onto the niche Roadster/Coupe pair, sales have waned slightly in 2014 with the pair being down 52.9%/54.4% YTD compared to 2013. But yet even in the shadow of the F56 launch, there is still much to love about of the Roadster and Coupe to the point that MotorTrend just named the Coupe one of the “Top 16 Hottest New Coupes on the Market”. continued →
