All Mini enthusiasts can rejoice as there is some good news for all you guys. All those who have wished for a more powerful Mini Cooper diesel model might find their dreams coming true very soon.
There were prototypes of the Mini Cooper S model that were seen in Germany which made a typical diesel engine sound. The images depict that the new edition will feature a centrally mounted exhaust and a slightly restyled front bumper.
