Following the reintroduction from the Mini in 2001 by BMW, the classic vehicle has undergone transformations that boggle the minds of Mini fans while still maintaining its status as a cult icon – the enjoyment evoked through the iconic front grille and headlamps is unchanged but beneath the hood, the newly revamped Mini is packing a lot greater punch with 200 horsepower replacing the 1960s original 34 horsepower engine from the first Mini Cooper.
Running out of energy spot one on sight, mainly because of its "cutest car ever" status. Its classification being a compact doesn’t seem to contain the same vomit-inducing powers since the Toyota Prius.
The "new" Mini – Not simply a Good looks
However, this car isn’t just a reasonably face – the German brand BMW has ensured how the tiny little vehicle hold its own in its original arena like a racing car. They marketed the emblem "new" Mini Cooper as a compact car that drives similar to a go-kart. Plus they weren’t messing around – the S model is a car that driving enthusiasts and road devils can be proud to own of their "cars which go zoom" arsenal.
If you do not own and have use of a Mini, some car clubs offer non-owners the chance to ride together in their driving events to enable them to see first-hand how the car handles and talk all about the fun-size road monster.
This vehicle’s following is probably just about the most quirky and interesting groups out there – they’re not shy about proclaiming their passion for the tiny terror and some have even taken becoming far as compiling lists with their favorite reasons for having the Mini Cooper!
Reason Number one: Admit it – cuteness is, and forever will probably be, the deciding factor. The Mini is cute without resembling a chick car. Sure, the female group of fans is offered too – but men don’t look less manly in the driver’s seat on this teeny-tiny compact. If cars might be considered urbane and metrosexual (ie looks good but is straight) then this Mini Cooper would win definitely.
With a side note, the car’s "cute" facade is hiding some powerful surprises. The famous "happy" grille is topped by a hood scoop that inhales refreshing air for the hyped-up engine. If you think maybe it lacks junk in the trunk – the twin exhaust pipes would prove you wrong. And end up forgetting about having to purchase aftermarket wheels – the 17-inch alloy tires are so integrated within the Mini’s design that handling the Mini Cooper at breakneck speeds and harrowing hairpin curves has never been so simple!
Reason 2: The Mini Cooper is gorgeous in and out! Most cars come with a dashboard with a speedometer, mileage and fuel gauge driving, leaving the center dashboard free to the GPS, A/C controls and entertainment system. The Mini Cooper, alternatively, incorporates a huge (some would say oversized) centrally-located circular speedometer (with some designs which has a GPS inside the center).
And mention owner customization! The Mini Cooper actually has mood lighting installed that one could turn on and modify at the push of the mouse. Overlook two-tone interiors and seat covers – you’ll have everything together with the Mini, obviously, but the items that set it apart from others – that is what helps to make the Mini Cooper one of the better ways for the car owner looking for something unique and fun.
