Mini is unveiling a new concept on September 23 in London, and you can win exclusive tickets to join select journalists and BMW Group employees at the live unveiling. All you have to do to enter for a chance to win is e-mail facebook at mini dot co dot uk with the subject line 'MINI Design Concept Event' by Monday, September 13. Excited? Ready to enter? Don't get too jazzed up – Mini is only offering this contest to folks who live in the United Kingdom.

It's pretty disappointing that the contest is only available to UK residents (we totally want to go), but we are indeed interested in what lies under the skin-tight body wrap seen here. It appears to be some version of the Mini Countryman, but we can distinctly see the bulge of two door handles on the driver's side, ruling out any chance that this concept will be the rumored coupe version of the Mini crossover. John Cooper Works treatment, perhaps?

If you live on the English Isle and are interested in attending the event, head over to Mini UK's Facebook page for more info.

      This must be the new Mini crew cab. Although it could be the new mini 4x4. I'm personally waiting for the new mini 9 seater, although I know a lot of people are excited about the new Mini Pontoon. (I'd rather have the Mini Submersible)

      Fingers crossed for Mini-MiniVan

      It's the MINI Countryman AWD with a V6 engine... notice a more prominent bulge in the middle of the hood than that on the Countryman S

      here's a hint, it will look like the other mini's...

      Countryman Coupe

        There's two. Its slightly hidden by the white panel, but its there.
        I say Countryman RS

        That's because the front ones are under the white mini tag. If it was a coupe the handles wouldn't be that far back as the door would be long as hell. Its most likely the JCW version.

      It's like Smart fortwo and Smart forfour. I don't think it will have the same success with the extra doors. Right now, I am feeling it with MINI being 4-Door. If Countryman were 2-Door, it would be more like a MINI.

      Doesn't look very mini to me..

      JCW seems like the best guess... except.... would that really call for a "concept" vehicle?
      It seems like that would just be teased and released and not get a dedicated concept at an auto show.
      Still - hard to imaging what a 4 door could be if not the JCW Countryman.

      Certainly not a coupe though.
      If those obvious rear door handles were the only ones then the the door would be like 33 to 50% the length of the whole body.
      That would be a clown car.

      Probably the JCW version of the Countryman.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I think it's the Countryman coupe which, despite being called a coupe is rumored to have suicide doors. So that's my guess. Can't wait to see it!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yeah ok I just noticed the hint of a door handle near the back and not "middle." I take that back. It prob is some special version of the Countryman...
