I like it, although as you noted in "the Switchback" that rear roof line is a bit odd.

I think it will be a bit controversial, but that's a good thing in my book.

Amazing.

There's also something almost mini-Porsche-esque about it! (Front 3/4 view only)

Based on the height of the roof and the door aperture, it will be o.k. so long as you are a maximum of 5 feet 3 inches tall !!!!!
I'm going to keep my Cooper S Convertible unless they come out with a topless version of it.

If you know how many MINIs you have you don't have enough ...

From someone who owned a Smart Roadster in the past, I'm sure you'll be able to squeeze easy enough into a MINI Coupe.

I still think the arches need to bulge out a bit.

So they've taken the Mini (a good looking car IMHO) and given it a terrible looking rear end
