2012 MINI Roadster US Pricing Announced

If you think that not having a roof over your head in the summer is going to make a world of difference while at the wheel of a brand new MINI, we have bad news for you. Official pricing information for the 2012 MINI Roadster has been released, and chopping the roof off has added about $3,000 on average over the Coupe.

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. This offers hothatch levels of performance with a 0 to 60 mph time of 7 seconds and a top speed 141 mph.

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

Make sure you don't drag race a Camaro convertible that's similarly priced...

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.
