MINI officially pulled the wraps off the new MINI John Cooper Works, a high-performance version of the British car. Under the hood we find a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo engine producing 231 horses and 320 Nm of torque, enough for a 0-100 km/h sprint of 6,3 seconds.
This figure is obtained with a manual transmission while the automatic one is even faster at 6,1 seconds. At the exterior, the new MINI JCW benefits from LED headlamps, a new front grille as well as a Rebel Green body finish.
The sports exhaust is also visible in the back as well as the rear apron and rear spoiler.
Besides the looks, MINI offers 17-inch John Cooper Works Race Spoke alloy wheels, a high-performance Brembo brake system, an improved suspension and electromechanical power steering.
We’ve seen the concept model earlier this year at Detroit but we were really curious to see what features will be carried on the production model.
