The Mini Coupé Concept - Click above for high-res image gallery

We just saw shots of the new Mini Coupé Concept for the first time yesterday and Mini has now released a bunch of B-roll footage of the diminutive machine ahead of its Frankfurt Motor Show debut. There aren't any shots of the two-door in motion yet, but you get plenty of beauty shots from a variety of angles – including more interior imagery.

One thing is becoming clear with this coupe, if you are one of those people not enamored with the design trend toward high waistlines and low lids, this will not be the car for you, at least in coupe form. If an open top speedster shows up as rumored, however, you may want to reconsider. We're thinking that a John Cooper Works speedster with that lovely 208 horsepower turbocharged four could be a really sweet summertime ride. Check out the video after the jump and the high-res shots in our gallery below.

      I don't get it.
      It's the same car as the cooper from the dashboard down.
      A Mini cooper convertible with the top down would be hard to tell apart from this car.

      It seems pretty pointless to me. I'd take a CooperS instead and avoid owning an ugly car in the process.

      You may not want to wish for that, remember the Convertible JCW starts at $34,995. You know this will cost more lets say 10% for easy math so starting at $38,500 before options. And just with BMW Mini options jack up the price quickly. You could easily see $45,000 from a roadster version. I like everything about MINI’s except the price and FWD.

      It's like the bastard son of a Mini and a Daihatsu Copen...

      I do like it, although I wouldn't mind a more traditional roof shape and a little ducktail spoiler.

      Man that thing is ugly. And pointless.

      "There aren't any shots of the two-door in motion yet"...

      I love it! I am not a small car guy at all..never would even consider a vehicle from this class. But....if a the new Mini comes out looking like this, I might have to buy one just to have around for fun on the weekend.

      The roof needs a bit of work still but otherwise I like it. A JCW version will be nice.

      I typically love hatchbacks and wagons and strongly dislike coupes, so I didn't think I would like a Mini coupe at all. However, this looks damned cool. The top is unlike anything I've seen on other coupes, and while it's not outright pretty, it's far more interesting than other 2-doors out there. Something about it reminds me of an Audi TT.

      I want the look -- I don't want the 40kCND the JCW commands.

      Give me a base model with 16" wheels and I'm pretty happy.
