As for engines, it might be worth upping your budget and tracking down the 2.0 John Cooper Works (JCW), which has 208bhp and will get to 60mph in just over six seconds. Other petrol models are available, of course. Most buyers will opt for the bog-standard 1.6 Cooper, which is adequate enough, but the Cooper S Twin-Power turbo delivers more immediate performance. It is only mildly slower than the JCW model. The practical choice is always going to be the 2.0 SD diesel, which is said to return more than 60mpg and is reasonably perky into the bargain. The list of standard kit is pretty comprehensive and includes power steering, central locking, stability control, air conditioning, electric windows, electric door mirrors and rear parking sensors. The in-car entertainment system means there’s a CD player and MP3 compatibility. Mini’s officialTLCservicing packs may still apply to the car and could save you the cost of a couple of services.

Adventurer, Orientalist, spy: the remarkable story of Spanish explorer Ali Bey al-Abbassi is to be told on the silver screen for the first time, two centuries after his death. Born in Catalonia in 1767, Domingo Badia y Leblich posed as an exiled Arab prince and became one of the first Europeans to set foot in Mecca. Yet despite mixing with the Spanish royal family, Napoleon's top officials and some of the most notable European intellectuals of his age, he has been all but forgotten since he died in 1818. "It's surprising that no film has yet been made on Ali Bey," Moroccan filmmaker Souheil Ben Barka said during a break on set. The Spaniard "was a seducer. No one could resist him," he said. With a budget of $17 million (15 million euros), the veteran director's dramatisation of the explorer's life is set for release in five languages and 40 countries in late 2018.

New rule: From now on, all sporting events must begin with an official bringing the game ball to the referee via the magic of drone-style hoverboard vehicles. That can be the only conclusion after watching the absolutely insane demonstration recorded at the Portuguese Cup Final on Sunday, which started with a man riding on air, Green Goblin style , and landing delicately in front of a ref to deliver the game's soccer ball. It was flawless. It was weird. It was what every sports event with a ball should have from this very moment on. Read more... More about Sports , Soccer , Drones , Hoverboard , and Entertainment
