New Mini Convertibles set for March 2009 UK launch

The Mini Convertible is set to make its UK comeback on March 29th next year, it has been revealed.

Mini Copper and Cooper S soft-top versions of the famous British car will be put on sale, both of which will feature ground-breaking engine technologies.

The announcement will no doubt be well-received by British car owners, as the first version of the Mini Convertible performed strongly in the UK small convertible sales sector between 2004 and 2008.

Indeed, world-wide demand is expected to be healthy as 164,000 first-generation Mini Convertibles have been sold across the globe.

The new Mini Convertibles promise to be sportier than their predecessor, but also come with a single-piece roll bar behind the rear seats to improve passenger safety.

Rear passengers will also be able to raise or lower their headrests to suit.

Mini Cooper Convertibles will cost £15,995 and Cooper S Convertibles £18,995.

Minis featured in the recent remake of the Italian Job, the iconic film which originally starred Michael Caine.
