    1416873600

    Whenever this writer thinks of "fancy" parking jobs, we go straight to Buddy Love singing Strokin' in a red Dodge Viper he slides into a tiny space in The Nutty Professor. But after watching the video below, we might have to start thinking about Chinese stunt driver Han Yue, who broke the world record for getting into the tightest parallel parking space. ...

    1416844800

    Mini gave us our first taste of its next-generation John Cooper Works Hardtop in concept form at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. And in fact, we already know that the production version will make its debut at the 2015 Detroit show in January.

    Los Angeles: Mini forgets to bring car to LA, shows Citysurfer concept scooter
    1416582000

    See that red thing? It's the Mini Citysurfer Concept. It is not, in case you were wondering, an automobile. Yet despite this apparent shortcoming, Mini has placed it on a plinth at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. The electric scooter weighs in at 18 kilograms (40 pounds), can hit 25 km/h (15 miles per hour), cover 16-25 km (10 to 15 mile)s and can be ...

    Paris: 2015 Mini Hardtop 5-Door isn't for the country, man [w/video]
    1412334000

    We've seen it in super high-res glory, but the Paris Motor Show marks the official coming out party for the new Mini Hardtop 4 Door (which is what it's called in North America, despite this Euro car having "5 Door" badging). It's a stretched version of the third-generation Mini Hardtop, but with an extra set of doors for rear seat passengers. Think of it ...

    Report: Mini Rocketman back on the table, might go aluminum
    1411063200

    Mini just doesn't want its Rocketman concept to die. It unveiled the truly mini model at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, and since then, there have been countless on-again, off-again rumours about the possibility of it going into production. If the latest talk proves true, a smaller vehicle like the Rocketman might make it into the automaker's lineup after ...

    Video: The original Mini Cooper still has universal appeal
    1410445800

    It sold over five million units. It was voted the second most influential car of the last century, bested only by the pioneering Ford Model T. It counted among its owners Steve McQueen, Enzo Ferrari and Peter Sellers. It is the classic Mini. The tiny, two-box, four-seat hatch is an automotive icon of the first order and it's high time it featured in an ...

    Report: Mini bringing new 230-hp John Cooper Works to Detroit
    1405800000

    Mini models may keep getting incrementally bigger, but then so do their engines. Or more powerful, anyway – especially when it comes to the John Cooper Works performance models. The JCW version of the first (post-revival) generation R50, which was really more of an upgraded Cooper S than its own model, packed a 1.6-litre supercharged four with 200 ...
