There is some company that that will be doing the conversion on MINI's. I think its called BESPOKE cars or something like that, Monsta did this tread a few weeks ago :)

Bespoke it is.........

It is Bespoke who are doing the conversions, but the smart money wouldn't buy one, I have a sneaky feeling that cutting the roof off your Mini might just void your warranty. You'll lose all the rigidity in the chassis as well, which would be a shame seeing as they're such tight cars too.

I got a phonecall today from Bespoke (better late than never)...

They will have photographs on their site next week, and the car should be ready next week also.

I am hoping to arrange a test drive and photosession in the next couple of weeks.

If the MINI is to be head honcho in this 'hotly' contested group of cars, then a convertable would be a good idea for BMW to market. What with the 206 cabriolet and the forthcoming KA convertable (which with the wide body/arch'e looks superb) they may be in for a hard time.

Have no fear, I know that they have made at least one prototype convertable (2 seater roadster actually) and that MINI have been looking into the viability of such a project financially...

I hope they make it, I'm sure we'll see one by 2004 at the latest.
