After the reintroduction of the Mini back in 2001 by BMW, the classic vehicle has undergone transformations that boggle the minds of Mini fans while still maintaining its status being a cult icon – the happiness evoked from the iconic front grille and headlamps is unchanged but within the hood, the newly revamped Mini is packing an extremely greater punch with 200 horsepower replacing the 1960s original 34 horsepower engine of the first Mini Cooper.
Exercise session spot one on sight, mainly because of its "cutest car ever" status. Its classification like a compact doesn’t manage to support the same vomit-inducing powers because Toyota Prius.
The "new" Mini – Not simply a Good looks
However, this car is not just a fairly face – the German brand BMW has ensured how the tiny little vehicle holds its very own in their original arena being a racing car. They marketed the brand "new" Mini Cooper as a compact car that drives such as a go-kart. And they weren’t messing around – the S model is really a car that driving enthusiasts and road devils can be proud to possess within their "cars built zoom" arsenal.
If you do not own or have access to a Mini, some car clubs offer non-owners the chance to ride along with them in their driving events to enable them to see first-hand how the car handles and talk by pointing out fun-size road monster.
This vehicle’s group of followers may perhaps be probably the most quirky and fascinating groups out there – they may not be shy about proclaiming their fascination with the small terror and some have even taken becoming far as compiling lists with their favorite aspects of the Mini Cooper!
Reason # 1: Admit it – cuteness is, and forever will probably be, the deciding factor. The Mini is cute without appearing like a chick car. Sure, the woman fan base is on the market too – but men don’t look less manly behind the wheel with this teeny-tiny compact. If cars may be viewed as urbane and metrosexual (ie looks good but is straight) then the Mini Cooper would win definitely.
On a side note, the car’s "cute" facade is hiding some powerful surprises. The famous "happy" grille is topped with a hood scoop that inhales refreshing air for that hyped-up engine. If you think maybe it lacks junk in the trunk – the dual exhaust pipes would prove you wrong. And end up forgetting about needing to purchase aftermarket wheels – the 17-inch alloy tires are so integrated from the Mini’s design that handling the Mini Cooper at breakneck speeds and harrowing hairpin curves has not been very easy!
Reason 2: The Mini Cooper is beautiful in and out! Most cars come with a dashboard having a speedometer, mileage and fuel gauge when driving, leaving the middle dashboard free for the GPS, A/C controls and entertainment system. The Mini Cooper, conversely, includes a huge (some would say oversized) centrally-located circular speedometer (with a few designs having a GPS within the center).
And talk about owner customization! The Mini Cooper actually has mood lighting installed that you could start and alter on the push of the mouse button. Overlook two-tone interiors and seat covers – you can have all that using the Mini, naturally, though the issues that set it apart from others – that’s what makes all the Mini Cooper one of the better selections for the vehicle owner seeking something unique and fun.
