Three modern day Mini Coopers, all caught in one beautiful frame – scenes like this are the reason we carry bulky cameras around all day. Each of these Minis are of the racy “S” variety, but the 2 on either end are second generation versions. The gen 1 example racing up the middle can be identified by its 17-inch multi-spoke wheels and less shiny “S” badge above the wheel well. Apparently New Yorkers are not the only ones loving Mini Coopers these days. While most automakers struggled to stay alive in 2008, BMW-owned Mini posted its best ever sales (+29%).
