NO BACKSEAT DRIVERS.

Action packed with a six-speed transmission, MacPherson suspension and a 181-horsepower turbocharged engine, this Cooper S two-seater leaves no room for anyone to tell you to slow down. In fact, when you hit 50 MPH, the rear spoiler automatically raises for better downforce, practically begging you to go even faster.  THE NEW MINI COUPE. HOLD ON.

A few days ago we featured the first MINI Coupe print ad for the John Cooper Works Coupe.  Here we have one for the MINI Cooper S Coupe shown in Lightning Blue and Silver.

The print ad can be found these issues:
