Courtesy of our friends at comes a photo of the twins filling up while driving around the Oxford. Expect new photos to pop-up in the coming weeks and the special launch group at Oxford begins to get their cars for the usual real world testing.

The Coupe will be officially revealed sometime this summer (we expect July) and will start production sometime in August. Look for them to make their way to dealers by late September. Also expect some changes to the JCW formula in time for the release.

The Roadster on the other hand will start production in February of 2012 and will make its way to dealers around March. MINI will likely offer Cooper, Cooper S and JCW models throughout the life of both cars. There are rumors that parts outside the US could see Cooper S D version as well.
