has a couple of new spyshots of the upcoming R56 MINI Cooper. MF readers will notice the uncanny resmeblence to the photos we posted a few weeks back. We also get a good look at the rear section as well. Based on the photo (which is slightly photoshopped) it looks like our description from March 2005 was pretty much dead-on. Slghtly larger rear lights, taller chrome handle, enlarged rear foglight, and no wrap-around glass. You can check out the photos below (along with the GP and Traveller photos that were seen last week in MPH):

[ Three New MINI Variants ]

Note, this is the Cooper and not the S thus we see no hood scoop. If you want to see the next MCS in action you’ll want to check out this previous story.

Thanks to Richard for the tip.
