10 surprising new cars for 2011
Just when you thought Mini couldn't get crazier, it's introduced an even less practical version of its classic two-door Cooper, simply dubbed the Coupe.
Mini describes the two-color, multipiece roof as a "helmet" and the entire car as "being able to drive a Tasmanian devil and bring one special person along for the ride." The back seats are gone, and now the hatch is raked at an extreme slope. The zingy engines and right-now steering response remain. We love a compact car as unnervingly wild to look at as this.
