MINI Roadster / Speedster spiedFri, 28 Aug 2009
The MINI Roadster caught on a poster at a MINI 50th Event
We had a whole heap of information earlier on this week on the MINI Coupe Concept that BMw are bringing to Frankfurt. But we had nothing on the MINI Roadster / Speedster, even though we know that MINI has produced a roofless version of the MINI Coupe.
But a quick witted visitor managed to grab a snap of the poster you see above at a MINI 50th private party, which at least proves that the MINI Speedster is coming to the party in Frankfurt next month.
Just like its tin-top sibling, the MINI Roadster (I know, we keep alternating between ‘Speedster’ and ‘Roadster’, but that’s because we’re still not certain which it will be, even if the poster says Roadster we did originally think it would be the MINI Speedster!) will be based on the underpinnings of the MINI JCW, which is good for over 200bhp. And, just like its tin-top sibling, it’s likely to cost a good £30k if – or when – it makes it in to production in 2011.
We guess BMW had wanted to keep the Roadster as more of a surprise than the Coupe, but now the cat’s out of the bag we may get more information ahead of Frankfurt.
