The all-new MINI Roadster is on its way to the Middle East with its arrival pegged for FEBRUARY 2012. The sixth model to join the MINI portfolio, the compact roadster in MINI style is the first open-top two-seater in the brand‘s history and embodies sportiness and spontaneous urban driving fun under the open sky.
The reproduction of the hallmark MINI design within the proportions of a roadster gives this MINI an unmistakable and irresistible charisma. Even with the roof closed the MINI Roadster displays an elegant, sweeping silhouette, with the transition from soft-top to rear end highlighting its characteristic three-box design particularly clearly. At the same time, the new model wears its brand identity on its sleeve thanks to unmistakable design features like the hexagonal contours of its radiator grille, the black border around the lower part of the body, chrome trim strips and surrounds, large circular headlights, vertically stacked rear lights positioned on the outer extremes of the rear end, and the eye-catching surrounds of the side indicators on the front side panels.
To further highlight the new Roadster’s edgy look, a range of two non-metallic and six metallic paint shades will be available for the exterior of the MINI Roadster while the roof remains in black in keeping with British roadster tradition. Sport Stripes, available in three colours for the bonnet, boot lid and rear apron, allow owners to add an extra personal touch.
The interior is just as eye-catching. The customary MINI variety of seat and upholstery variants include ultra exclusive piped sports seats in the colour shade Toffy. Added to which, black sports seats are also available in Punch Leather with beige-coloured perforations. Trim strips can be ordered in any of six variants, while an extra Chili Red option is also offered for the MINI John Cooper Works Roadster. A choice of five Colour Lines is also available, and MINI lovers may likewise choose to explore the additional, extremely exclusive interior design options offered by the MINI Yours range.
The MINI Roadster underlines its premium character with a high-quality range of standard equipment, including air conditioning, speed-sensitive steering assistance, electrically adjustable exterior mirrors, Park Distance Control, height-adjustable seats and an audio system with MP3-compatible CD player and AUX IN connection. Levels of comfort and individuality can be further enhanced by specifying attractive options such as xenon Adaptive Headlights, black headlight housing, Comfort Access and the Always Open Timer. And the MINI Roadster also offers in-car use of innovative MINI Connected infotainment and communications functions.
