A Modern MINI magazine reader sent in this 'spy shot' he took of a heavily camouflaged F56 MINI Cooper in a car park in Oxford. Interestingly all of the interior was covered over with blanking covers.

Distinctive new Mk3 F56 MINI halo ring headlights......the top half of halo ring is for LED DRL (Daytime Running Lights) while the bottom half is for turn indicators. Cool

MINI is well underway testing the third-generation of its Convertible, as evidenced by these photos, showing the new droptop riding along on a flatbed.

Codenamed the F57 - as opposed to the "F56" designation for the Hardtop - the Convertible will ride on the same UKL front-drive architecture that will underpin its hardtop brother.

From the beltline down, we can expect the Convertible to feature almost identical styling to the Hardtop. Based on the spy photos, there's not a lot to see above the belt line, either. The roof carries roughly the same shape, and will probably fold in a similar Z-pattern to the current canvas top.

Underbonnet, the Convertible should share its powertrains with the Hatchback, meaning the top-flight mill will be a 2.0-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder with 189 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. A turbocharged, 1.5-litre three-pot will be the standard engine, but should still come to play with 134 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. While the F56 Mini will debut in a few weeks time, we'll be waiting much longer to see the F57 Convertible, with our spy claiming an on-sale date in 2015.
