Mini Unveils the 2012 Mini Roadster

Mini has unveiled the roadster version of the Mini Coupe that was just released. The 2012 Mini Roadster is the sixth model in the brand’s current line-up and the first open-top two-seater in its history.

The Mini Roadster is basically the same as the coupe version, although its metal roof has now been replaced by a manual soft-top. The Mini Roadster sits 20 millimeters lower than the Mini convertible. It’s available with four engine options: the MINI John Cooper Works Roadster with 211 hp, MINI Cooper S Roadster with 184 hp, MINI Cooper Roadster with 122 hp, and the diesel powered MINI Cooper SD Roadster with 143 hp.
