Every man has his dream car. If i could own any car in the world, it would be a BMW Mini Cooper S 😎
I’ve never driven one, but i know i’d love it. The latest 2007 version boasts a 5 star NCAP rating and increased fuel efficiency. The Cooper D model – The Diesel version, offers an incredible 72.4mpg 😯 But if i could afford one of these babies, i’d be taking the 1.6l Cooper S petrol at 40.9mpg (the old Cooper S was 32.8mpg).
It has to be the ultimate hot hatch. Perfect for one person like myself. Loads of bite, power and packed full of gadgets. Mine would be anyway 😉
- Integrated GPS
- Integrated phone system
- Hill Assist Button (auto locks the brakes until the cars moves forward, so it’s impossible to roll back)
- Run on Flat tyres
- Semi -Automatic transmission (steptronic paddles for that formula one feel).
- Parking Sensors
- climate control
- cruise control
- heated mirrors
- Rain-sensitive wipers
- Heated/cooled seats
If had one of these sitting in my driveway, i don’t think i could ever moan about collecting someone again 😛 I’d probably live in it. The main fun factor would be the semi-automatic transmission.
I’ve passed my test in a manual car, so it’s not like i can’t drive a standard manual.. but a semi-automatic would really allow you to sit back and enjoy the ride. No clutch = a happy left foot and less occupied mind in traffic. If and when i buy a brand new car, it WILL be automatic. I believe i’m part of a new generation who will make the switch to auto’s. Manual transmission’s days are numbered here imo.
So if i make it big, the Cooper S will be one of the first things i buy 😎
