Tucked into the far corner of the L.A. Auto Show sit two Mini concept cars that have been generating some serious buzz. Now, sources say, the Mini Roadster and Mini Coupe could find their way into production in the very near future.
As TheDetroitBureau.com’s Henny Hemmes reported, last week, from Staples Center, in downtown Los Angeles, the two show cars have a decidedly more aggressive look than current Mini products, starting with their steeply raked windshields. (Click Here for the complete story.)
Up to the A-pillars, the Roadster is similar to that of the current Mini Convertible. The windshield, though, is 60 mm lower and raked at a sharper angle, providing the look of a ‘baseball cap’, said Ian Robertson, Mini’s sales and marketing chief.
