That English auto magazine everyone seems to love to hate has the first photos of the MINI SUV test mule up close. Included in one of the shots is a clear look at what appears to be a rear differential.

Other than the photos, don’t put much faith in what else is said in the article. The R60 will come to the market in late 2009 as a 2010 model and will likely debut in early 2009 at Geneva.
