MINI Coupe Details Announced

MINI Coupe 1 at MINI Coupe Details Announced

MINI is not yet ready to show the new Coupe to us in ful, but they are more than happy to let us know about its technical specifications.

That’s probably because everybody is already familiar with the range of engines the car will get, seeing as they are the same as other MINIs. The looks of the MINI Coupe are very similar to the concept model and features the same “helmet roof”. We hope they offer those awesome stripes as well!

So the new Coupe comes as the Coupe, the Cooper SD Coupe, Cooper S Coupe, and John Cooper Works Coupe. There’s something for everyone, and all of them promise great driving fun, thanks to stuff like Electric Power Steering, the standard-fitted DSC stability control system, powerful brakes and measures designed specifically to optimise torsional rigidity.

The power output for the available engines are: MINI John Cooper Works Coupe 155 kW/211 hp – MINI Cooper S Coupe 135 kW/184 hp – MINI Cooper Coupe 90 kW/122 hp – MINI Cooper SD Coupe 105 kW/143 hp.

Since the two-seater Coupe it’s built as a sportscar, it is 29 millimetres lower than MINI hatch and for the first time features an active rear spoiler that engages automatically at 80 km/h or 50 mph. MINI says it is also practical with a decent-sized boot, but you won’t be mistaking it with a van!

Here’s more tech specs and performance figures:
