New BMW Mini Cooper

Here's a question that I think Vwhobo will enjoy.(or anybody else)

What kind of an engine does the new Mini Cooper have,and whose design is it,and where is it made,and by what engine building company is it built?

I don't get it, is this supposed to be a trick question? The car is 100% BMW. It's a Mini Cooper in name only.

See the real thing below.

Sorry vwhobo,but you are wrong.
The new Mini Cooper is not 100% BMW.
The engine is a 1.6l four-cylinder.Which for sure you already know.
Though the engine has nothing to do with BMW.It is a Chrysler design that is built in Brazil,by Tritec.
The engine was designed in Detroit, for overseas models of neons and PT Cruisers.

THough I personally really like that new BMW Mini Cooper,though when I found out that it's engine isn't BMW's,then I kind of felt dissapointed.
