Looks like Mini is trying to get costs down and small-ify thei Mini cooper a bit with some help with a foe...
From automobilemag yesterday, they've commented on how Toyota and BMW are looking into a "all-new bargain basement effort that can be integrated in the Mini family. To keep costs and weight at bay, engineers will simultaneously have to focus on de-contenting and downsizing.
The Minor will be one of five new Minis that Peter Schwarzenbauer, board member in charge of Mini, Rolls-Royce, and BMW’s two-wheeled Motorrad division, intends to install as pillars of the brand. "
Can read more about it on Automobilemag - pretty cool!
