It is a bit strange, but I guess it's the same as the Countryman's roofline really, with the helmet design - it just looks larger on the coupe!

I'm not overly sure about the point of the coupé. I can understand the clubby and countryman but not so much this. Smile

And the one above is just gross!

Not a fan of the Coupe. I don't quite understand what it is that the hatch isn't already? I mean I already treat my hatch as a 2 seater pretty much anyway, and I'm unsure of the Coupe's roofline too.

The forthcoming MINI coupe may be called the MINI Broadspeed Coupe. Autocar sources suggested a while back that the Broadspeed Coupe name was being evaluated by MINI and BMW, in homage to the Broadspeed racing team that manufactured the 1966 Broadspeed GT Coupe.

My point exactly Phil! Very Happy

Although I can see the resemblance in the above post, which at least gives it a little historical context now. Smile

Saw the soft top version somewhere, will try and post. Even though I'm not a convertible fan I preferred it to the coupé. Smile

Now that looks great! Can't see much Market for the convertible against that though.

The Roadster is also now on MotoringFile - Pre-Production MINI Roadster Spied
http://www.motoringfile.com/2011/02/11/pre-production-mini-roadster-also-spied/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Motoringfile+%28MotoringFile+|+MINI+News%2C+Reviews+and+Podcast%29

http://www.gmotors.co.uk/news/2012-mini-roadster-spotted-for-the-first-time/

Historically this was the closest BMC ever got to making a 2 seater Mini-based Roadster car and now resides at the Heritage Collection at Gaydon:
http://www.aronline.co.uk/sportsado34f.htm

"Active between 1960 and 1964, ADO34 was a project to develop a Mini-based roadster, which would logically have replaced the MG Midget and Austin-Healey Sprite. Different versions were put forward by Austin at Longbridge and MG at Abingdon, while a coupé version (ADO35) was also developed, along with Austin-Healey versions of each car (ADO36)."

I didn't like the coupé at first, but really want one now Smile The roof looks odd in the spy shots as it has been disguised with black tape marking out a fake shape over the yellow/black bits. Confused me at first!

I love the countryman, plan on that being the next car! Razz

I see it has a purpose though, as has been said the hatch is pretty much a 2 seater anyway! Very Happy
