2012 MINI Roadster to Debut in Detroit

If you think that the Chevrolet Camaro convertible is too over the top and you need some posh European styling in your life, how about the brand new MINI Roadster. We’ve just learned that MINI has announced it will debut at the 2012 Detroit Motor Show next month.

The car will hit the us market in three flavors. The 2012 MINI Cooper Roader base model will set you back $25,050, for which you get the base 1.6-liter with 121 horsepower. Next up is the Cooper S Roadster, which starts at $28,050 and offers a more respectable 184 hp from a turbocharged version of the same engine.

You can’t buy the diesel in the States, but you can have the top-of-the-range JCW Roadster with 206 horsepower, and a more track-focused setup. This costs $35,200, and will be available in the spring, together with the other versions.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
