SPIED! Mini Coupe 2011

2011-03-30 07:38

SPOTTED: Mini's new Coupe undergoes testing in Germany.

Our spies spotted Mini’s new Coupe on the streets of Munich, Germany.

Though sporting garish camouflage, the model spotted during testing gives us a good idea of what the final production model will look like.
With most of the rear upper body hidden, we suspect Mini is trying to hide the car's taller dimensions and steeper windshield compared to the concept model introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2009.

In our photos, you can spot a retractable spoiler in the “up” position while the Coupe is in motion.

It was rumoured the production version of the Mini Coupe and Roadster would debut at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show but it seems Mini was not quite ready for the March show.

We expect a global launch later in 2011.
