New Mini Cooper JCW to be showcased at New York Show

New Mini Cooper JCW to be showcased at New York Show

If you are wondering what JCW stands for, its ‘John Cooper Works’ – performance-tuned versions of the Minis. The British small-car maker, now owned by BMW, will showcase the John Cooper Works edition of the Mini Convertible at the New York Show to be held in March last week.

The Mini Convertible JCW gets the same 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine as the Cooper S but is tuned to deliver 228bhp of power as against the standard 189bhp. The power figures are about 20bhp more than the outgoing JCW Mini Convertible. With 320Nm of torque available, the more than 1.3-tonne car is propelled to 100kmph in 6.6 seconds with the manual gearbox transmitting power to the front wheels. It also gets a six-speed automatic option which helps shave 0.1 seconds off the 0-100 sprint.

Not only does it get more power, the JCW Mini looks meaner too. With a slightly bigger grille, a large bonnet scoop and lightweight alloy wheels, it looks aggressive. The JCW gets LED headlamps and tail lights along with the revered JCW badging. You will also have the option to buy it in the Rebel Green hue available exclusively with the Works Mini.

While Mini has been in India for a few years now, we haven’t had a taste of the JCWs yet. And from the looks of it, getting this one to grace the Indian soil certainly seems like a daydream.
