Enthusiasts seeking a four-door JCW Mini Hardtop can now get the next best thing with the 208-horsepower Carbon Edition that's limited to 150 units in the US.
Mini Hardtop 4 Door
We've seen it in super high-res glory, and we can even build one on the automaker's website, but the Paris Motor Show marks the official coming out party for the new Mini Hardtop 4 Door (which is what it's called in the US, despite this Euro car having "5 Door" badging). It's a stretched version of the third-generation Mini Hardtop, but with an extra set of doors for rear seat passengers. Think of it as a more useful Clubman, but with a lower ride height and less rugged-ness than the Countryman.
