Mighty Mini’s new­est look

NT News - Motoring - - CARS GUIDE -

IT’S an­other new Mini — and this time the baby brand that has been pushed and pulled in all di­rec­tions has come up with a sec­ond drop­top.

The dif­fer­ence be­tween the up­com­ing Mini Road­ster and the ex­ist­ing Cabrio is ob­vi­ous from the rounded lines and a shorter roofline that cov­ers a smaller two-seater cabin.

The car was caught by Carparazzi with­out any ma­jor dis­guise— apart from the silly swirls on the tail — and has been clearly de­vel­oped from the Road­ster Con­cept from the 2009 Frank­furt Mo­tor Show.

It has a swept-back wind­screen and a Porsche-style re­tractable rear spoiler, but we’ll have to wait un­til later this year — per­haps the next Frank­furt Show — for full de­tails and the on-sale date.
