Is it yellow? Or green? Or yellowy green? Regardless, this John Cooper Works Mini is difficult to miss. Unfortunately, when the turbo kicks in, it's also difficult to keep the wheels pointed straight. Add in the stiff suspension and a wildly nonlinear turbocharged engine that puts out over 200 horsepower, and you get a serious handful in a seriously small and adorable package.

The face of straight-up robbery never looked so cute.
Great...$36k, and it's a stripper. But it did start as an $18k car, so that's cool. Put a few options on it and you're near...a BOXSTER!!!! Mini should have made only one for Paris and her dog.
