MINI Coupé Concept

MINI Coupé Concept

Tempted by the MINI's go-cart handling, but not a fan of its boxy exterior? The MINI Coupé Concept ($TBA) is for you. Ready to accept any of MINI's powerhouse engines, including the 1.6L twin-scroll turbocharged unit from the MINI John Cooper Works, this stylish two-seater pairs a decidedly MINI-like bottom with an aggressively designed upper half, including a swept back windshield, short contrast roof, hidden B-pillars, and more sexy than every other modern MINI combined.

  • MINI Crossover Concept

    Four doors, four seats, and four wheel drive. Measuring six inches wider and taller than the Clubman, the new MINI Crossover Concept ($TBD) is the largest MINI to date, also offering a higher ride height and more interior space — all without losing the MINI's iconic styling. Since it's only in concept stage right now, there are no official engine details, but rest assured this will be one of the most fuel-friendly "SUV" you'll find. [via]

  • sQuba

    More than 30 years since Roger Moore's 007 put the idea into every guy's head, someone has finally replicated the underwater auto experience. Swiss design company Rinspeed has created the sQuba ($1.4 million), the world's first submersible car. Based on the Lotus Elise (it was a Lotus Esprit in The Spy Who Loved Me), the all-electric convertible can drive you to the lake in style and then dive underwater to a depth of over 30 feet. The car's engine was removed and replaced by three motors — one for land driving, good for up to 75 mph, and two others for the underwater propellers. Power is supplied by rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries. You can check the sQuba out in person at the Geneva Motor Show next month, but, unfortunately, there are no current plans to build others besides this prototype.
