In-game description[edit | edit source]
"The 21st century MINI which keeps its brand image while offering new touches."
After purchasing the Mini brand, BMW quickly went to work in recreating the Mini car, and history was remade in 2001 with the introduction of the New Mini, only this time it had a distinctly German flavor.
The New Mini appeared with a larger body than the original, the result of today's stringent crash standards, but the spirit of the original was noticeably kept intact, thanks to the overall shape, compactness, and face of the new car. It was truly a Mini for modern times.
The base engine was a 1.6-liter SOHC inline-4 that produced 89 HP and 103.4 ft-lb of torque. A sportier version cranked out 113 HP and 109.9 ft-lb. The choice for enthusiasts was the Cooper S, whose powerplant provided 113 HP and 109.9 ft-lb of torque to the front tires. The base grades received a 5-speed manual transmission and a CVT, while the Cooper S came equipped with a 6-speed manual.
Whichever combination you ordered, the car's on-road character was delightful as it demonstrated an excellent combination of handling, power, and comfort...BMW style. Of note was the cornering character of the Cooper S, which felt like an oversized go kart, thanks to its razor sharp reflexes and excellent power coming out of corners. For those who preferred driving with their hair in the wind, BMW offered the Mini convertible in 2004.
