There’s no doubt that the new electric Cooper, which is to be dubbed the Cooper E and Cooper SE, will capture the world’s attention when it debuts in the coming months. However, there will still be a few combustion-powered models and the Cooper S should be the most exciting of them all. That is until potent John Cooper Works versions hit the market, of course.
This prototype is bathed in yellow and black camouflage, the same is a three-door model. A number of images have already leaked online showing the latest generation Mini Cooper, so we already have a good idea of what this variant will look like. Among the most notable changes made over the previous model are new headlights with circular LED daytime running lights, more aggressive lines on the hood and a rear that really stands out thanks to the new LED taillights with a particularly complex design.

As a more performance-focused version of the Cooper, we can see that this prototype has a unique set of silver and black spoked wheels and also appears to have a revised front fascia that includes additional air intakes and a larger grille opening. Mini engineers also equipped the hot hatch with a large spoiler that extends from the roof.
The car’s most intriguing detail is the exhaust. This prototype only has a single exhaust coming out of the center. Given how rare it is to see a performance car these days with just a single exhaust, we would normally suggest that this exhaust is simply being used for testing purposes and will be scrapped for the production model. However, given that Mini went to the trouble of designing a rear bumper for the car with a small cutout for this unique exhaust, it seems likely that this is how the final product will look.
