Following the reintroduction from the Mini back 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 from the iconic front grille and headlamps is unchanged but underneath the hood, the newly revamped Mini is packing a lot greater punch with 200 horsepower replacing the 1960s original 34 horsepower engine in the first Mini Cooper.
Most people can spot one on sight, largely due to its "cutest car ever" status. Its classification as a compact doesn’t seem to contain the same vomit-inducing powers as the Toyota Prius.
The "new" Mini – Not Just a Style
However, this car isn’t just a fairly face – the German brand BMW has ensured the tiny little vehicle holds its rolling around in its original arena like a racing car. They marketed the brand "new" Mini Cooper as being a compact car that drives much like a go-kart. And so they weren’t messing around – the S model is often a car that driving enthusiasts and road devils will be proud to get inside their "cars that go zoom" arsenal.
If you do not own and have access to a Mini, some car clubs offer non-owners the opportunity ride along with them in their driving events so they can see first-hand how a car handles and talk everything about the fun-size road monster.
This vehicle’s group of fans might be one of the most quirky and interesting groups out there – they may not be shy about proclaiming their passion for the small terror and some have even taken becoming far as compiling lists with their favorite reasons for the Mini Cooper!
Reason # 1: Face it – cuteness is, and forever will likely be, the deciding factor. The Mini is cute without looking like a chick car. Sure, the female following is offered too – but men don’t look less manly driving with this teeny-tiny compact. If cars could be classified as urbane and metrosexual (ie looks good but is straight) then this Mini Cooper would win absolutely.
On 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 that hyped-up engine. If you think it lacks junk in the trunk – the twin exhaust pipes would prove you wrong. And tend to forget about the need to purchase aftermarket wheels – the 17-inch alloy tires are very integrated from the Mini’s design that handling the Mini Cooper at breakneck speeds and harrowing hairpin curves hasn’t ever been so easy!
Reason # 2: The Mini Cooper is gorgeous inside and outside! Most cars come with a dashboard using a speedometer, mileage and fuel gauge driving, leaving the very center dashboard free to the GPS, A/C controls and entertainment system. The Mini Cooper, alternatively, features a huge (some would say oversized) centrally-located circular speedometer (by incorporating designs having a GPS in the center).
And discuss owner customization! The Mini Cooper actually has mood lighting installed that you could activate and alter on the push of the mouse button. Overlook two-tone interiors and seat covers – you will get all of that with all the Mini, of course, but the things that set it apart from others – that’s what makes all the Mini Cooper among the best selections for the vehicle owner looking for something unique and fun.
