A quick update for all those looking forward to the next MINI convertible. As many readers probably know the car wil be codenamed the R57 and will be based entirely on the R56. It’s top design will be a slightly updated version of the current R52 convertible with a larger glass rear window. Also making it’s debut is a pop-up roll-bar system that will take the place of the current vision robbing set-up.

Currently 4-6 test mules are coming off the production line at MINI’s Oxford Plant each week. The mules are meant for final testing before production.
