Gabe and his minions at MotoringFile have a major update on what's coming from Mini in 2007. The second-gen version of the newly iconic lil' bugger will be most notable for what's under the hood, though both the interior and exterior are getting evolutionary changes that'll be impossible to miss for Monk-like detectives and Mini freakizoids (just jokes, Gabe!) The new engines are part of a joint venture between BMW and France's PSA. More power, better tranny, same Mininess. One million in sales, here it comes.
