Instead of sprinkling all 20+ photos of the new R56 prototypes throughout the official MINI press release, we thought readers might enjoy seeing them completely on their own in a separate post. Just click on each photo to increase the size. To move to the next image, simply click the next button or use the “N” key on your keyboard. To go back hit the previous button or click the “P” key.

Now let’s hear some initial thoughts. Likes, dislikes, questions, concerns?

MINI will release final, un-camouflaged photos (including interior shots) in mid-August.
