Mini Coupe Concept

By now most of you have probably seen the Mini Coupe Concept that will debut next month in Frankfurt. So what’s really going on with this concept and what is Mini thinking? In its press release Mini says that the Coupe Concept provides an “unusually attractive vision of how the model family may well develop in future.”

According to a report by Automotive News, the BMW owned brand plans to bring a production version of the Mini Coupe to market within two to three years as a rival to the Audi TT and Peugeot’s new RCZ.

Mini says that the Coupe Concept you see here has been designed to be the most dynamic and agile Mini ever. It can accommodate the 1.6L twin-scroll turbocharged unit from Mini John Cooper Works that produces 211-hp with a maximum torque of 192 lb-ft.

We’re expecting Mini executives to reveal more details at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show next month.
