It’s certainly more impressive in person and even better in motion. All three of us liked it quite a bit more than we thought we would. I was surprised to see it power up and move under it’s own power given the windows are so darkly tinted. Behind those windows is a 100% stock Countryman interior not intended to be seen. The final interior design will blend the front of a Countryman with something a bit more unique in the back.

Another interesting fact about this car – it’s identical in length to the R60. It’s simply more sculptural and horizontal than the R60.
