BMWBLOG had the opportunity to speak with Vinnie Kung, Product Manager for MINI North America. MINI’s fun, intelligent presence is founded on the fun, intelligent personalities of its employees. Mr Kung certainly represents the brand well, with his cool, relaxed demeanor and quick wit – I thoroughly enjoyed my interview with him.

Our conversation centered on the new John Cooper Works Countryman – a vehicle I’ve driven and fallen for. We also spoke of the new MINI Coupe and Roadster, and how they compare to each other and the regular Cooper.
