Los Reyes Magos are ahead for all who were awaiting the arrival of the most powerful version of the latest generation MINI laureate. As there, we talk about the MINI John Cooper Works, in this new version comes with the intention of not disappoint even the most burning pilots. And is that we are talking nothing more and nothing less than the most powerful MINI ever built in the history of the brand if we obviously any subsequent changes in the margin.
The engine of the new MINI John Cooper Works is the same TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder 2.0 released in the last Mini Cooper S, but its power has been increased to 231 hp, which is 20 hp from the previous generation. To get juice to that power, the engine will be associated with a manual six-speed gearbox, with which accelerates from 0-100 km / h in 6.3 seconds, reaches 246 km / h, and declares a combined consumption of 6.7 liters 100 km.
Optionally, you can opt for an automatic transmission Steptronic six highly recommended speeds, which improves both records acceleration to 6.1 seconds, as consumption down to 5.7 l / 100 km.
In addition, to get the most juice of these benefits, both the manual version as automatic will be equipped as standard with Dynamic Traction Control, electronic control differential lock and the “Performance Control” improves cornering vehicle. But if that’s not enough, you can also optionally equip the MINI with a system of adjustable dampers.
But like any sport that price, the MINI John Cooper Works not only have to have a powerful engine, but outwardly should be different from his brothers. Therefore, this MINI will easily recognize over other more conventional MINI thanks to features such as front, side and rear skirts, rear spoiler, larger front air intakes, the legendary John Cooper Works stripes on the hood and distinctive grilled gate and body sides.
Also unique headlamps with white LED and intermittent technology and a unique color named “Rebel Green” that will give you a hint, if anything, more distinguished. In addition, the MINI John Cooper Works is shod as standard with a beautiful 17-inch wheels (optionally be equipped each 18 inches) that show some effective Brembo brakes.
Meanwhile, inside also the atmosphere is kept racing with sport steering wheel, exclusive seats with integrated headrests, shifter and specific center console trim on the doors, stainless steel pedals and roof lining in anthracite tones.
As we see, this new generation of MINI John Cooper Works seems like a sporty little more palatable for those seeking pure and simple fun behind the wheel. However, at present we lack data on their final price, which next January will surely happen. Surely more than one will be waiting impatiently.
