Oxford, England – Mini has announced it will debut its Coupe Concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show in mid-September, a sporting two-seater that the company said develops “fascinating perspectives for the future of the brand.”

The concept features compact dimensions, perfect axle load distribution and a low centre of gravity for enhanced agility. Designed to accommodate the 1.6-litre twin-scroll turbocharged engine from the Mini John Cooper Works, the Mini Coupe Concept offers 211 horsepower and up to 206 lb-ft of torque.

The Mini Coupe Concept also features lightweight technology, including an aluminum roof that optimizes the overall weight and lowers the car’s centre of gravity. The lower weight also means greater efficiency, combining driving pleasure with reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
