Here’s an excerpt:

There is a handful of cars that look very different from anything else on the road. They attract attention mostly for their snappy styling. Volkswagen’s New Beetle comes to mind, so does the Chrysler PT Cruiser. The Mini Cooper falls into this trendy category, but unlike the others, it has some serious sport baked in, which is what we’ve always liked about this car, especially the supercharged S model.

Like the two other eye-catchers we’ve acknowledged here, the Mini follows suit, adding a droptop version (naturally aspirated and supercharged forms). We got the hot one, all 1.6 liters and 168 horsepower of it, connected to a six-speed manual.
