Anyway, here's a look at my soon-to-be-born MINI as I configured it. Eugenics at work, baby!
It's a Cooper S (the faster 168hp supercharged version) Convertible, with lots of bells & whistles and chrome. It also has a Limited Slip Differential for extra auto-geek coolness and better handling in swervy situations.
People compare the handling to a go-kart, but my goal is to fly the thing as if it's a WWI airplane that just happens to be stuck to the ground. Go-go 7G turns!
The dealership was initially anticipating I might get it as soon as late February, but now it's looking close to mid-March.
The line forms here for top-down roadtrips. Warning: You must be taller than 32 inches to board this ride.
