Cooper Convertible is a car with tremendous character and while it's an upgraded version of the last year's model, Cooper Convertible 2012 is still looking fresh, and has such a charming presence. Brits are known for building cars with character, with some of their car brands changing the global perception about automobiles forever. Rolls Royce and Mini are two good examples for this. If Rolls Royce was the ultimate word for luxury, Mini was a great example of modesty and manufacturers across the globe had to learn something from both brands. The 2012 Cooper Convertible, however, not only comes with British persona but it's a great example for German engineering excellence as well; thanks to BMW who owns Mini now!
