The New Mini John Cooper Works - Web Exclusive

Jul 1, 2008

The new Mini Cooper S just got better with the debut of the John Cooper Works edition. Unfortunately, it will only be available in the UK but it's a sign of good things to come for Mini tuner market.

The Mini John Cooper Works will go on sale on July 22, 2008, priced at 20,995 ($41,940 USD).

It features a strengthened, larger version of the twin-scroll turbocharger, partly responsible for the grin on the face of every Mini Cooper S owner. Developing 211hp and an impressive 192 lb-ft of torque, turbo boost can be extended even further to 207 lb-ft on deployment of the car's Overboost system. This gives the Mini John Cooper Works the highest peak torque figure ever of any open production Mini. Because full boost is available between 1,850 and 5,600rpm, the car is an outstanding performer on road or track.

The engine, transmission and braking system of the John Cooper Works model is adapted from the Mini Challenge race car. A 0-62mph time of 6.5 seconds is the result of extensive performance tuning. If you're worried about fuel economy, the Mini has a potential 40 miles per gallon depending on your driving habits.

Making the Mini John Cooper Works stand out from a standard Mini Cooper S is a range of specific styling and performance features. An aerodynamic kit, 17" wheels, John Cooper Works badges, large brake rotors with upgraded red calipers and large twin tailpipes signify this car has something special under the metal.
