    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 ...

    Review: 2014 Mini Cooper S
    1403884800

    Striking The Balance Its Predecessor Never Could One of the big challenges as an automotive journalist is reviewing cars that you have a personal connection to. I have a strong passion for Minis. My first new car was a 2004 Cooper S, and I still own a 2006 model. It's this affinity that's left me ...

    Video: Remember that world-record jump crash? Here's every angle, including the human one
    1403568000

    While there are those who watch automotive exploits hoping (secretly or otherwise) for a spectacular crash, most of us are happy when everything goes smoothly.

    Report: Mini's Superleggera concept could see production; here's what it might look like

    We fell in love with the Mini Superleggera Vision Concept from the moment we laid eyes on it. The little convertible blends retro and modern together better than any Mini in years. There is even more good news about the roadster as well because the company is considering actually building it. We ...

    Official: Lego Mini Cooper coming in August [w/video]
    1401922860

    Lego isn't just for kids anymore. A while back, the company cleverly realized that adults liked its connecting blocks as much as kids but wanted a more sophisticated project to take on.

    Official: Mini Superleggera Vision is the all-electric roadster Mini needs to make
    1401387300

    It could be argued that Mini has not built a pretty car since the R53, the first of the reborn Minis, was put out to pasture at the end of 2006. I've owned two R53s, so yes, I'm horribly biased. The styling situation in Oxford hasn't improved much for 2014, either, as the bigger, more ...
