Hot on the heels of BMW's press release detailing the unveiling of the new 2007 MINI Cooper and Cooper S came video of the car's tooling around the English countryside. You can see that the new dimensions have created a demonstrably larger MINI, yet the design flavor that made the first iteration famous is in tact. We'll see the car up close in Paris, but this footage should hold us until then.
