With an uprated engine, brakes and some additional chassis tweaks - these cars promise to be absolute rockets.

MINI JCW Cooper S

The standard ‘Cooper S puts out 128kw and 240Nm (260Nm with overboost); the dealer installed JCW engine kit ups it to 141kw and 250/270Nm; these new factory cars put out a very decent 155kw and 260/280Nm. Available as a hardtop or Clubman. Can’t wait to try one out and compare to our car.
