Spy photographers have been hard at work again – this time managing to capture some new images of the MINI Cooper SD, which is a Cooper S that has a diesel engine. The vehicle is expected to be launched in 2011.
The car was spotted and photographed in all its glory – revealing a sport suspension, ventilated hood, and a center-mounted dual exhaust system. Power is expected to be from a 1.6-liter turbodiesel engine with above 140 hp (104 kW / 142 PS).
The 184 hp (137 kW / 187 PS) Cooper S will continue to outshine this one, but the SD will definitely outgun the 110 hp (112 PS / 82 kW) Cooper D and the 89 hp (90 PS / 66 kW) One D.
