I am really sure that hardly anyone in this century wouldn’t know the name of a German luxurious automobile manufacturing label, BMW. There is no doubt about BMW car’s efficiency and off course, the performance of the engines used in these cars. If we talk about the origin of this company, BMW Group; we came to know that it has very old past.
It was 1930 when BMW, which stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke, introduced their first ever car “DIXI” which was pretty impressive car of that time. Time went on and almost every type of car was manufactured by BMW as per requirements and taste of the customers.
The year 2001, was quite successful year for BMW group as it gained the rights to manufacture MINI which originally was introduced by British Motor Corporation from 1959 till the year 2000. But BMW then retained rights to manufacture MINI and UK is the only place where all the three brands of BMW group (BMW MINI and Rolls Royce motor cars) are manufactured. The MINI production plant Oxford, the heart of mini production, started operation in 2001 and now the number of cars reached to 2 million. In 2011, the reported sales of MINI vehicles by BMW group UK Ltd. were well-nigh 50,138 in number. The products of Oxford plant include MINI Hatch, MINI Convertible, MINI Clubman, MINI Roadster and MINI Coupé.
Here, we are going to explore the one and only MINI Coupe.
The mini coupé is the two-seater sport car made by MINI (BMW) between 2011 and 2015. MINI coupe is the sportiest model with two seats in the whole MINI range. The suspension is kept lowered for an outstanding handling and it has engines designed to give strong performance.
Now, if we look at the exterior of MINI coupe, its roof is just like a backwards-worn baseball cap. Replaced by a 280-liter boot, the back seats have gone to accommodate the new look, doubling the storage capacity of the standard Hatchback. You can find Cooper, Cooper S, Cooper SD and John Cooper works in MINI Coupe range. Inside, coupe looks like an ordinary Hatchback apart from missing back seats but this gives a plenty of space for both driver and the passenger. In fact, it’s surprisingly snug to sit inside MINI coupe.
The Cooper arrives with a 1.6 liter petrol engine providing 120bhp. The Cooper SD, for superior fuel economy, is fitted with a 2.0 liter diesel engine giving 141bhp and the last but not the least JCW comes with a 1.6 litre turbo petrol engine offering 208bhp and it strikes from 0 to 62mph in just 6.4 seconds.
So, overall, MINI coupe is the perfect car with a lot of space for two travellers with powerful engine and elegant styling and classy look.
