Official details for the Mini Coupe image

MINI has revealed details about its latest model – the MINI Coupe. The 2012 Coupe, Mini’s first-ever two-seater, will be followed by the 2012 Mini Roadster, which should reach U.S. dealers next spring.

The car will be available in for specification levels, starting with Mini Cooper Coupe’s naturally-aspirated 1.6-litre engine. From there it’s on to the 1.6 turbocharged petrol Mini Cooper S Coupe, 2.0 turbodiesel Cooper SD Coupe, and the range-topping 208bhp Mini John Cooper Works Coupe. It will be the fastest model in the range to with the top-spec JCW model covering 0-62mpg in 6.4 secconds – a tenth quicker than the JCW hatch.

The Cooper S model will push out 181 hp, also from a twin-scroll turbo four, and the base unit will make 121 hp.
A six-speed manual gearbox will be standard, with a six-speed automatic an option on some versions of the Mini Coupe.
The Coupe will use two spoilers – an integral roof-mounted unit and an active version that will deploy from the rear of the car at speeds above 50mph.
MINI claims, however, that the car will be versatile and easy to live with, with extra storage areas behind the passengers, a wide and high-opening tailgate and the ability to load through to the passenger compartment.

Sales will begin after the Mini Coupe’s Frankfurt motor show unveiling in September. Expect prices to range from around £18,000 to £25,000, undercutting equivalent Audi TTs.
