Forget for a second that the MINI Coupe is a two seater. Instead think about it this way – it’s like a MINI match without the rear seats. Sound familiar? Yeah a little but like a JCW GP. And as a GP owner will tell you, it’s shocking how much you can fit into the boot. And MINI wants to make sure everyone knows that about the Coupe as well. And as you can see above and after the break, the pictures do all the talking.
Full gallery and press release after the break.
Official Release: With its sporting genes and allegiance to the cause of maximum driving fun, the MINI Coupé delivers a thrillingly focused driving experience. The first two-seater in its line-up sees MINI not only breathe new life into its successful racing history but also provide a shot in the arm for the super-compact sports car class. The MINI Coupé indulges the keen driver with a level of agility unmatched in the small car segment, along with a unique body and interior concept and the brand’s customary commitment to premium levels of design, quality, equipment and customisation.
A two-seater with space for more.
The MINI Coupé highlights its pure-bred, compact sports car character with oval recesses in the roof liner. Plus, standard-fitted sports seats offer outstanding lateral support through briskly-taken corners. Further back, an extremely high-opening tailgate and large luggage area with through-loading facility give the MINI Coupé outstanding versatility on the urban race track. No other MINI before it has offered so much load space for those creative road trips with a lucky other.
The spacious boot has a capacity of 280 litres and offers enough room to swallow a large number of luggage items available from the MINI Lifestyle Collection. From the robust, hard-shell Rooftop series cases to easy-going Black Jack luggage and retro bags from the Shout range, MINI conjures up the right gear for any trip. These clever luggage solutions are available at www.MINI.de/shop and selected MINI dealers.
An athlete in peak form.
Its flat silhouette and innovative “helmet roof” lend the MINI Coupé a sporty and individual allure. In addition to the integral roof spoiler, an active rear spoiler optimises airflow at higher speeds. The MINI Coupé can be ordered with the most powerful petrol and diesel engines in the brand’s arsenal.
Outputs range from the 90 kW/122 hp of the MINI Cooper Coupé via the MINI Cooper SD Coupé (105 kW/143 hp) and MINI Cooper S Coupé (135 kW/184 hp) all the way up to the MINI John Cooper Works Coupé, a thoroughbred athlete producing 155 kW/211 hp.
