Mini has released the first official pictures of their new Coupe Concept.

Set to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the concept features typical Mini styling with a front end that is almost indistinguishable from the standard Mini Cooper. Moving further back, onlookers will be shocked by the radical side profile. The aluminum roof has a "reverse baseball cap" appearance, while the greenhouse features a unique wraparound design. Other styling details include massive wheels, a sporty rear bumper, and dual center-mounted exhaust pipes.

Inside, the Coupe features two individual front seats and an open rear compartment which accommodates 250 liters (8.8 cu ft) of luggage. The cabin is outfitted with leather upholstery, carbon fiber trim, and two Chronoswiss clocks (one is a traditional clock, while the other is a dedicated lap timer).

Power comes from a turbocharged 1.6-liter engine that produces 211 hp and 260Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque. The Coupe Concept also features an overboost function which can temporarily deliver a maximum of 280Nm (206 lb-ft) of torque. Considering that the JCW Mini runs from 0-60 mph in 6.2 seconds, the Coupe should be able to do the same task in less than 6 seconds.
