UPDATE: On the 6th June 2011 MINI unveiled the pre-production version of the MINI Coupe.

The MINI Coupé Concept first went on display at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. The concept is designed to preview the coupe model due to join the expanding MINI line up.

From all angles the Coupe Concept has unmistakable MINI styling elements, from the round headlights and trademark grille, to the extended wheel arches and distinctive taillights. The only section of the car which is not instantly recognizable as belonging to a MINI is the glass house with its steeply raked windscreen and the curvaceous roofline.

The MINI Coupe Concept is a strict two seater, and with a lightweight construction and the legendary MINI chassis the vehicle's dynamics should match expectations.

The MINI Coupe Concept is built to accommodate the 1.6-litre twin-scroll turbocharged power unit borrowed from the MINI John Cooper Works. This powerplant develops 211 hp and a peak torque of 260 Nm (192 lb-ft). By using the Overboost function this can be increased to 280 Nm (206 lb-ft) for a short while. Despite the potent drivetrain the MINI Coup Concept follows the BMW Group's EfficientDynamics development strategy which aims to increase driving pleasure, while lowering emissions.

Wide-opening doors give the driver and passenger unhindered and easy access to the interior, where they are met with a pair of sports seats with deep lateral support. The three-spoke leather sports steering wheel features multifunction buttons for controlling audio and communication systems. Other controls are arranged in an ergenomic manner on the dash. The Tachometer is mounted behind the steering wheel, while the speedometer is part of the central instrument in the upper section of the dashboard. This circular instrument well known as the Center Speedo also houses the audio system as well as the optional entertainment and navigation functions.

Length - 3,714 millimetres (146.2")
Width - 1,683 millimetres (66.3")
