    Great looking Mini. Seems to be a hatchback according to the line seen on the rear edge of the roof.

    haha. lightweight construction, what because it has a chopped roof? And because of this it's a genuine sports car?! How much lighter is it than the portly JCW mini at 2700lbs. Isn't it still FWD? Perfect axle loading?! The current Mini JCW has 62% of it's weight on it's front wheels. How did they move 300lbs of weight into the back?

    I would be happy with the standard engine in this coupe, and if it would make the price competitive with the VW GTI, it will be on my shopping list as a replacement for 2011. MINI should prepare a road-worthy version and get it in the hands of some review journalists.
