MINI blows its top - pics

Mini to launch new cabriolet in 2008 (AUTOMEDIA)

BMW is readying the new drop-top derivative of its new MINI.

The topless MINI is expected to go on sale early next year.

Our spies caught it testing close to the firm's Munich headquarters.

With a multi-functional fabric top, the car is going to be the ultimate 2008 summer city-car.

With a c pillar at least as wide as on the current model, visibility to the rear won't be improved at all, but the stowage of the rood could well be better.

For that, however, we'll have to wait for photos of the car with the roof laid down.

Naturally the engine range will reflect that of the hard-top model.
