Mini Speedster

Open top sports car in the sun

Seen as it's summertime, I thought I'd share this old rendering I did of a MINI Speedster. This was created before the stunning 2014 Superleggera Concept made its début, so it wasn't influenced by that car. The idea was to give MINI a proper rival to the Mazda MX5, instead of the disappointing Roadster that was just a 2-seater version of the standard open-top MINI.

I looked to British roadsters of the 50s and 60s for inspiration. As with those cars, the MINI Speedster utilises a front-engine rear-drive platform, in this case one shared with the BMW 2-Series Coupé.
