New Mini Coupe - details, prices and official pictures

Evo has got prices, spec and official images of the forthcoming two-seat Mini Coupe, on sale later this year

Mini has released prices and official pictures of the forthcoming Mini Coupe ahead of it going on sale in October. Prices for the two-seater will range from £16,640 for the entry-level version all the way to £23,795 for the full-on John Cooper Works version. 

We've already driven a prototype version of the Coupe, but now we can also tell you where it will fit into the market, with pricing that sees it undercut cars like the Audi TT and Peugeot RCZ by a considerable margin.

Four engines will be available from launch, all familiar from elsewhere in the Mini range. The basic 1.6-litre has 122bhp, an official fuel consumption of 52.3mpg and a claimed 9.0 second 0-62mph time. The 'S' has a 184bhp 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol motor - good for a 6.9 second 0-62mph time and an official 48.7 mpg - and will cost £19,775. At the top of the tree the £23,795 JCW has 211bhp, cuts the claimed 0-62mph to 6.4 seconds and scores 39.8mpg. That's enough to make it the quickest 'volume produced' Mini to date.

And for determined fuel misers there's also a diesel version, the SD Coupe, which features the more powerful 143bhp version of Mini's existing oil-burner. That translates, officially, into a 7.9 second 0-62mph time, 65.7 mpg and CO2 emissions of 114g/km - enough to earn it free road tax. It will cost £20,510. Six-speed manual transmission comes as standard, with the option of an autobox on the standard car, the S and the SD.

Standard equipment will be generous - certainly by Mini standards - including DAB digital radio, aircon, park distance control and - less good news - what's described as 'sport stripes on the bodywork.'
