F56 Cooper S Render

Decided to have a go at rendering the upcoming F56 based on the latest spy photos. The render looks remarkably like the R56 even though I have tried to follow the lines of the spy photograph. Obviously production bumpers probably won't resemble the render either but without much info to go on it is difficult to reflect this in the render.

Side and rear view coming soon.

Great stuff! What software did you use?

From what I've read at motoringfile, the Cooper S may not have the trademark bonnet scoop. Obviously it was always a fake addition on the R56 Cooper S, but I believe the F56 Cooper S will have enlarged bonnet bulges instead to differentiate it from other models.

The front grille and bumper are supposed to closely resemble the MINI Rocketman concept, and we'll find out within the next months...

It sounds as though the F56 will offer some interesting technology: entirely-LED based headlights, radar cruise control and heads up display, all expensive options no doubt.

The Cooper S will not use the 1.5 litre 3-cylinder (that's good for up to 220hp in the BMW i8), but actually a 2.0 litre 4-cylinder offering just 187hp in standard spec. I know the F56 is a little lighter but this is a little disappointing. I'm really interested in the F56 MCS for delivery by Christmas, and I had a R56 MCS that was putting out a healthy 191hp and 211lb Ft (175 model) so it will be a shame if the F56 isn't a little quicker.

I used photoshop to create the render. I'm sure there are many details that may not be accurate on the render however it gives us a rough idea that the F56 may not be substantially different from the R56.

This is just a guess but I'm predicting the standard Cooper will resemble the Rocketman more than the Cooper S.

As for power, I think you will find the 187hp will be plenty for the standard S. With the car being lighter and more torquey it will be a quick little car. BMW are also known for underrating their cars too so a dyno will probably show figures of at least 195hp.

Lots of speculation about the F56. I'm just going to wait until it is officially released and hopefully won't be disappointed.

That would be too difficult to get one to suit everyone, unless they do maybe a ladyboy?
