Mini’s new Roadster will be priced between £18,015 and £24,850 when it goes on sale in spring next year.
The Roadster quickly follows the Coupe but features a semi-automatic operation of the tailored soft-top roof. When opened, the roof folds down flat behind the seats.
As with the Coupé, all variants of the Roadster carry the Cooper name in their model titles.
Full details of standard and optional equipment on each will be released nearer the launch, but the line-up of Cooper Roadster, Cooper S Roadster, Cooper SD Roadster and John Cooper Works Roadster will likely mirror the Coupe.
