New spy shots of the new Mini Coupe

Since Mini has entered the BMW family, this small car has passed thru several transformations and let's says that...it's not that "mini" any more. Even so, the spirit has remained the same and one over the other, the Mini is still one of the most attractive brands on the market. Now, once again, the UK based car manufacturer is preparing us for another promising model: the 2012 Coupe.
For the moment the intel is quite scarce but a recent set of spy shots made by the guys over at autoblog have revealed the relative appearance of the new coupe. We say relative because of the intensive yellow psychedelic camouflage mounted on the redesigned parts of the car, parts that will differ from the standard MINI. Even so, a well trained eye can see a new retractable spoiler masked within the trunk, a novelty compared to the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show concept.
As for the propulsion unit, we can only presume that the 2012 Coupe will receive the same range of naturally aspirated and turbocharged 1.6 l engines found on the other MINI version, but this could change until the end of this year when we should see the first 2012 MINI Coupe in the showrooms.
