Exclusive to the MINI Cooper S: John Cooper Works Tuning Kit - Web Exclusive

Feb 3, 2011

The selection of John Cooper Works retrofit options will also welcome some attractive new additions in spring 2011. Customers keen to sample the sporting driving experience in the MINI Cooper S Hardtop, MINI Cooper S Clubman or MINI Cooper S Convertible will be able to order their cars with the John Cooper Works Tuning Kit.

Performance-optimized engine management and a specifically designed air filter system enable the twin-scroll turbo engine to develop even greater power. The maximum output of the four-cylinder unit rises another 11 horsepower to 195. Plus, the driver can call on maximum torque of 184 lb-ft between 1,250 and 5,000 rpm when some serious acceleration is required - and this can be raised to as much as 199 lb-ft between 1,800 and 5,000 rpm courtesy of the Overboost function.

The John Cooper Works Tuning Kit includes a model-specific sports silencer with polished tailpipes, which optimizes the exhaust gas discharge and gives the engine sound a particularly sporting note. It is available for retrofitting on all relevant models with manual gearbox produced since August 2010 (model year 2011.) It meets the MINI brand's high standards of quality and safety in terms of both design and engineering and is retrofitted, like all John Cooper Works accessories components, by authorized MINI Dealers. This means that the new vehicle warranty will also cover the John Cooper Works Tuning Kit, if it purchased with the vehicle when new. Pricing and availability will be confirmed shortly.

Another new addition to the John Cooper Works accessories range is the 18-inch Cross Spoke Red Stripe light-alloy wheel, which will also be available beginning in the spring of 2011. The black wheel features the innovative addition of a red trim stripe on the wheel rim. This high-quality marking is produced by means of a special painting process, and the color tone is identical to the red of the Brembo brake calipers on factory John Cooper Works models.
