It was quite a long time since we saw some interesting news from the BMW owned company MINI but now today they presented a really cool concept car – the MINI Coupé Concept. It will be officially presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month but already today we can give you the details and some photos.
If you’re bored with the performance of your BMW Mini Cooper then this might be something for you. It’s a hybrid version of a Mini using a small gasonline engine combined with four small electric engines on all the wheels, which gives the car the ability to top 150 mph and accellerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds.
