The new model, based on the current Mini, has a longer wheelbase and wider track over the outgoing model, which, Mini says, has a direct effect on the car’s driving characteristics. Weight savings and improved aerodynamic properties have also contributed significantly to the new car’s performance.

Larger air intakes can be seen at the front, alongside LEDs and a new front bumper and grille.

New skirts flank either side of the car, while the rear sports a new apron and diffuser. A new sports exhaust has been fitted.
