Auto Express has shots of a pre-production MINI half-cloaked in yellow swirly nonsense. This time it’s the Speedster and we’re getting an even better view of the retractable boot lid spoiler. Just like the Coupé, it’s looking an awful lot like its concept car, cloth top and all.

The Roadster (final name still coming) will start production in February of 2012 and should hit dealer lots in March of next year. MINI is planning on producing Cooper S and JCW models at launch and potentially following up with a Cooper model later in the lifecycle of the car.

As on the Coupe, the Roadster will feature a moveable spoiler that deploys above a designated speed. It will also feature an exclusive exterior color and new interior materials.
