More details of the upcoming Mini Speedster

Behold the fastest and most sought after MINI there is, the Speedster, an extremely stunning, two-seater top-down that merges spectacular appearance with outstanding performance. Hot on the heels of the Crossman, the carmaker's first 4x4, the striking roadster will bring the famous brand to a whole new territory.

For some years now, speculations about the Speedster have been going around that it will challenge the next-gen Mazda MX-5 as well as the forthcoming CRZ of Honda.

It seems, however, that the top brass of BMW, the parent company of MINI, have at last gathered the boldness to realize the company's first authentic sports car. Exclusive photos show that the flagship will be distinct from the Crossman, which derives its underpinnings from the upcoming BMW X1, since it will utilize the same MINI Convertible platform.

Official: Mini Cooper Coupe and Roadster will be built in the U.K.

MINI's manufacturing site in Oxford will be building two new MINI models. This report has been confirmed by Norbert Reithofer, Chairman of the Board of Management at BMW AG, during his recent two-day visit to BMW Group UK operations.

The new models include a new vehicle derived from the MINI Coupé Concept, whose images were released to the media on August 26, 2009. Details for the second model remain unknown although its concept will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show on September 15.

It is believed that the compact MINI Coupé Concept will be powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that powers the MINI John Cooper Works. The carmaker designed and developed the two-seater MINI Coupé Concept to be its most dynamic and agile model.

Mini Roadster Concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show

Set to go on sale in 2011 is this two-seat Roadster, the second of Mini's new models. Unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Mini Roadster is the sister car to the Mini Coupe. It will attempt to encroach on the market share of the Mazda MX-5 and Audi TT Roadster. The car will be manufactured in the UK at Mini's Oxford plant.

It is based around the same re-engineered Mini Convertible bodyshell as the Coupe and as such, the Roadster concept shares that car's rakish A-pillars and lowered roofline.

The silhouette in itself is admirable. The front pillars slope back an extra 16 degrees on the concept, giving it a sportier look but is actually an expensive feature to re-engineer.
