Just after a day the car was officially launched to the local automotive press, a group of Burnpavement LIVE! members got to feast their eyes on the zippy and chic new Coupe from MINI.

Available in both Cooper (120 bhp) and Cooper S (184 bhp) variants, participants not only got to see the funky two-seaters, they were among the very first few to drive what has been hailed as MINI's fastest and best handling car!

"It's fantastic, it actually manages to feel faster than my MINI, and the handling is sharper too. The low slung roof and more sharply raked front windscreen also makes for a sportier feel." said Christopher Liu, a current MINI Cooper S owner.

With an evening full of awesome cars, great food and exclusive prizes and giveaways, participants walked away all smiles. Some even expressed interest in an extended look at the car - all the best guys, we look forward to seeing more of the MINI Coupe on our roads.
