Cooper (R57)


The MINI Cooper R57 Convertible was a part of the second generation of the modern MINI Cooper lineup. Produced from 2009 to 2015, it continued the tradition of the MINI Convertible, offering an open-top driving experience combined with the iconic design elements of the brand.

Similar to its predecessors, the R57 Convertible featured a retractable soft-top roof that could be electrically operated, allowing for quick conversion between a closed car and a convertible.

The design of the R57 Convertible retained the classic MINI Cooper styling but incorporated updates and refinements. It maintained the compact dimensions, retro-inspired aesthetics, and customizable options that the MINI brand was known for.

The R57 Convertible was available in various trim levels, including the Cooper, Cooper S, and John Cooper Works (JCW) editions, each offering different levels of performance and features.

The standard Cooper variant typically housed a naturally aspirated or turbocharged 1.6-liter inline-four engine, while the Cooper S and JCW versions boasted more powerful turbocharged engines, delivering enhanced performance.

Like its predecessors, the R57 Convertible offered front-wheel drive and manual or automatic transmission options. Inside, it featured the distinctive circular-themed interior design that was a hallmark of MINI Coopers, providing a blend of retro charm and modern technology.

The R57 Convertible was praised for its agile handling, lively performance, and the thrill of driving with the top down, making it an appealing choice for those seeking a fun and stylish convertible in a compact package.

Though the R57 Convertible is no longer in production, it remains a favored choice among MINI enthusiasts for its combination of distinctive design, spirited driving dynamics, and open-air motoring experience.

At present, our inability to furnish pricing online stems from the dynamic nature of global economics, which has led to substantial fluctuations in the costs of parts and materials on a day-to-day basis. The intricate interplay of market forces, supply chain disruptions, and geopolitical factors has rendered pricing incredibly volatile, making it challenging to provide accurate and up-to-date figures in real-time.

As we remain committed to offering fair and transparent pricing to our customers, we find it prudent to ensure that any pricing information reflects the current market reality, hence our decision to refrain from online pricing until we can reliably provide figures that align with the ongoing fluctuations in the global economy.
