While they’re known for their subcompact cars, Mini now has their own subcompact urban bicycles. The 24-pound bike folds neatly and is small enough to fit in the back of – you guessed it – a Mini Cooper.
To be unveiled at the Geneva Auto show, the MINI Rocketman concept car clocks in at about 3 meters long; it features carbon construction, chassis gliding doors, 18″ wheels and wrap-around glass roof.
Ah, one of life’s great questions… What would happen if you put a jet turbine engine from a helicopter into a Mini Cooper. Uh. This. More footage of this good little car gone bad here.
No, we don’t mean Mini Pac-Man. Mini’s 208-hp AWD coupe concept looks like a Countryman with 2 doors ripped off. More details to be revealed at the Detroit Auto Show in January.
Mini’s Scooter E Concept is powered by an integrated electric motor in the rear wheel and features a smartphone adapter which operates as vehicle key, display and central control element.
Cummins has creatively crammed a 3500 hp, V18 diesel engine (you know, the kind they put in dump trucks) into an original Mini; it has more than 10,000lb/ft of torque and uses 12 turbochargers.
The Mini just bulked up. Set to debut in the US next year, the Mini Countryman is 161.3 in long and has a wheelbase of 102.2 in, combining space and flexibility with the classic Mini look.
Love it or hate it, but you have to give MINI props for having the cojones to show off this Beachcomber Concept; it strips out the doors and adds AWD for a decidedly non-urban vehicle.
A topless version of the MINI Coupe Concept, the MINI Roadster loses two seats from the current convertible but gains 8.8 cubic feet of trunk space and a new multi-function display.
Celebrating the 50th birthday of the original MINI, the MINI Coupe Concept is a hot little two-seater; it packs a 211 hp, turbocharged 1.6L and an Overboost mode good for 206 lb-ft.
The John Cooper Works MINI Cabriolet boosts low-end torque, good for a 0-62 time of 6.9s; also upgraded are the suspension and brakes, along with a piano-lacquer trim and aero kit.
Limited to only 500 vehicles in So Cal, NY and NJ, the MINI E is an all-electric with zero emissions; it’ll get 204hp and 162 lb-ft with a range of 150 miles off its Li-Ion batteries.
