The MINI Superleggera Concept has officially been announced and it will be heading our way in just a few short years. The open-top two-seater will be launched in 2019 and we’re extremely excited to welcome it to the family.

The new car, designed by MINI and Touring Superleggera, is said to have the front wheel drive UKL platform and will be equipped with three cylinder, four-cylinder, and diesel engine options. In addition, it’s speculated that there will be a plug-in version of the concept car.

Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design, said, “Touring Superleggera and MINI have much in common: both companies attach great importance to their history and this is something which defines their outward appearance to this day. What is more, they both emphasize iconic design and distinctive solutions.”

Although we have to wait until 2019 to get our hands on it, we’re highly excited about the partnership between MINI and Superleggera. Stay tuned to our MINI of Pittsburgh blog and we’ll release more details about the upcoming concept car as they are revealed.
