Forget the ridiculous creations Batman drives in the movies. In real life, he relies on the MINI Coupe Cooper S to move around town - the John Cooper Works is too stiff to be combined with Batman’s gear... he has kidneys too. Not only is it a good car to impress Cat Woman, but it’s also practical enough to be able to hold a tied up, captured villain in the trunk and it’s also easy to drive fast, so Robin can get behind the wheel when this is necessary.
There’s just one problem...
BMW won’t let you buy parking sensors for the front bumper, so the lower side of the front fascia on Bruce Wayne’s car is pretty damaged.
The car is agile and has plenty of muscle for its size, so it allows you to move swiftly around town. While the dynamics are perfect for tackling the limited space a crowded city offers, the interior space,along with the boot, are more than enough for your urban needs.
However, the Coupe Cooper S proves to bit a bit tight for city driving. It doesn’t matter if we consider looks from the overall point of view or if we get into the details, the conclusion is the same. The suspension is a tad too rigid and doesn’t offer the multi-purpose a city vehicle needs and the engine, albeit economical for is output level, can be quite thirsty if you’re a right pedal lover. The fuel consumption isndie the city borders sits at around 22.4 mpg (10.5 L/100Km).
In fact, the entire vehicle is set in such a way that allows it to just please the driver, it would need to be able to relax a bit. If you can live with these kind of things, this car will make every trip, even a short one to the shops, a delight, but if you can’t, it will become tiring.Continue reading

This MINI Coupe is so cool, that it makes me want to invent the opposite of “yo mamma” jokes - yo MINNI’s so cool, it’s in the dreams of every dream girl you’ve ever dreamed of/ yo MINNI’s so cool, it’s got you washing it with tears of joy” - you get the idea.
