New Mini convertible - first pics

2008-10-24 08:10

Mini is gearing up to launch its all-new convertible – snapped here in Cooper S guise.

Sources are telling us that this new Mini is sporting a new and “multi-functional” fabric top – but we’ll have to wait a few months to see exactly what it can do.

The current model’s huge roll-over bars will make room for a somewhat more elegant system: a solid roll-over bar that pops up when needed but otherwise hides behind the rear-seat backrests.

With roof closed, the c-pillar will be at least as wide as on the current model, so visibility to the rear won’t likely be improved, although we expect the new top to stow a bit better than the current model’s. The new Mini Cabrio is expected to have its debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
