Used Mini Cooper fans looking for a vehicle offering slightly more speed could find a car that is right up their street at the upcoming Geneva International Motor Show.
On March 3rd, BMW will unveil the Mini John Cooper Works Convertible, which is the world’s fastest small premium cabriolet.
There are slight performance differences between the hatch and convertible offerings, with the hatch having a slightly higher top speed of 148 miles per hour.
Also, the hatch version of the Mini Cooper is more eco-friendly, generating fewer CO2 emissions at 165g/km, while providing used car drivers with better fuel consumption of 40.9 miles to the gallon.
Jurgen Hedrich, Mini Plant Oxford’s new managing director, said: "The launch of the new Mini John Cooper Works Convertible is incredibly important as it signifies that our complete model line-up is now back in production across Mini’s UK production facilities."
Among the other features of the model, due to hit the market in the UK on March 28th, is the inclusion of unique lightweight 17-inch alloy wheels in Cross-spoke CHALLENGE design.
Mini was recently named as the UK’s cleanest car manufacturer for 2008 by CleanGreenCars.co.uk
