Let’s be honest: Mini probably isn’t aiming the 2016 Cooper S Convertible at the super-tall, Nürburgring-based professional touring car driver demographic. I tested this car because BMW, Mini’s parent company, combined the launch of this car with the M2 and made us drive it first. That’s how I found myself in Southern California in a Mini convertible, top down, ripping up Mulholland Drive…. and loving it.
