Mini Coupe Concept to be shown at Frankfurt
BMW is showing a Mini Coupe Concept at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. It might head for production by next year, considering how “complete” it looks, but only if there is enough demand.
The bottom half is almost completely similar to the regular Mini Cooper S. Powered by a 211 hp 1.6-litre John Cooper Works turbo engine, the Mini Coupe Concept features a sharper-sloping windshield, a chopped top and a sloping rear glass area.
The likelihood of production will probably depend on how well the upcoming Mini crossover is received, as well as the end of the current recession.
