The Mini Roadster concept is a two seater with a soft-top might possibly be powered by the 1.6-litre twin-scroll turbocharged engine already featured in the MINI Cooper S. Boasting direct gasoline injection, this superior power unit delivers maximum output of 128 kW/175 hp and peak torque of 240 Newton-metres/177 lb-ft increasing briefly with the Overboost function to an even more superior 260 Newton-metres/192 lb-ft.
The new Mini Roadster Concept two-seater measures 3,714 millimetres (146.2″) in length and 1,683 millimetres (66.3″) in width. Height of the car is 1,356 millimetres or 53.4″. The MINI Roadster Concept comes with extra-short body overhangs front and rear accentuating the athletic stature of the car and alluding even at a standstill to the unique handling characterised by thrilling agility and lauded as that unparalleled go-kart feeling. With the roof closed this gives the car a notchback look clearly distinguishing the MINI Roadster Concept from the MINI Convertible.
