"Two Door Fashionista"


That is what the Las Vegas Review Journal calls the MINI Coupe.  It says, in part:
The Coupe is certainly the sportiest of Minis and the suspension settings have been adjusted to reflect this characteristic. There's also an available sport suspension package with extra-stiff shocks and thicker anti-sway bars for those who enjoy shaking loose their fillings.

The powertrain lineup should also be familiar to Mini fans. Base models are fitted with a 121-horsepower 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, while the S features a 181-horse turbocharged 1.6. At the top of the scale is the John Cooper Works (JCW) edition that pumps out 208 horsepower from its turbo motor. The JCW also comes with an aero kit, Brembo-brand brakes, distinctive alloy wheels and a fancier interior.

Transmission choices for all consist of a six-speed manual or optional six-speed automatic.

Coupe pricing begins at $22,000, which is nearly two grand more than a base hardtop. But as any fashionista knows, you pay more for trendy bespoke attire than for off-the-rack. For the no-boundaries adventurous, your Coupe carriage awaits.
