We flew over to Italy to tour their shop and attend MINI's unveiling. It's a truly impressive vehicle. I wish it didn't have the tail fin, but otherwise a great blend of Italian and MINI styling.

We'll have a good behind the scenes article up with shots of their shop and such in a little while.

The fin, the cheesy union jack tail lights I'm sure someone thought would be a nice homage to the British ancestry of the marque, the light aluminum finish on the dash providing little contrast to an exterior color that just lacks punch.

Am I nit picking? Yeah.

Maybe they looked to DB4s which were among the first superleggera cars I can remember falling in love with and were rather British in their subdued finishes.

It'll grow on me probably, I hated the R56 for two years lol maybe I'm just old.
