It was rumoured that the production version of the Mini Coupe and Roadster would make its debut at the recent Geneva Motor Show, but it seemed Mini was not quite ready. However, our spies captured these photos of the 2012 Mini Coupe on the streets of Munich, Germany. The vehicle was introduced as the Mini Coupe Concept in Frankfurt in 2009. With camouflage concentrated on the rear upper body area, we suspect Mini is trying to hide the taller dimensions of the greenhouse and steeper windshield compared with the concept. In another photo of the Coupe, we could also see a retractable spoiler in the up position while in motion. You can expect a market launch later in the year.
