The Mini Coupé is the first model in the brand's line-up to have a "three-box" design, thanks to its stepped read end that is styled like that of a classic gran turismo.

The Mini Coupé is also the brand's first model to be equipped with a rear spoiler, which automatically extends at speeds of over 50kph.

As mentioned two weeks ago, the Mini Coupé is available in four variants :

* the Mini Cooper SD Coupé with 143 hp;
