MINI CON­VERT­IBLE Who’s it for?

Any­one look­ing to turn heads as they drive along the coast with the wind in their hair.

What makes it great?

It might not be the most prac­ti­cal buy, but what cabri­o­let is? And to be hon­est, it ’s all about buy­ing with your heart and not your head when it comes to a boule­vard cruiser. This charm­ing and char­ac­ter­ful con­vert­ible has just un­der­gone a facelift so it looks fresher than ever. And if you’re cruis­ing along the coast, you re­ally don’t want to have to worry about shift­ing gears, so opt for the au­to­matic de­riv­a­tive. It’s fun, it ’s nippy, it ’s en­ter­tain­ing and now, thanks to the MINI Yours Cus­tomised pro­gramme, you can add retro­fit prod­ucts that you cre­ate your­self. The range in­cludes side scut­tles, dec­o­ra­tive strip LED door- sill fin­ish­ers and a LED door pro­jec­tor.

This has to be one of the most stylish con­vert­ibles on the road and has a roof that can open or close in just un­der 20 sec­onds at speeds of up to 50km/ h. It has a host of en­gines to choose from, in­clud­ing the pow­er­ful AMG range, but then you’re get­ting into the mil­lions, so maybe opt for the C200 or C200d to save some money but still be sat­is­fied.
