|   Tuesday, December 16, 2014
The MINI John Cooper Works is the most powerful version of the British model and is now at its third generation. The official presentation of the new version would have to take place in January next year in the Auto Show in Detroit, but the first pictures and technical information have been published before this event.

The new Mini JCW has a 2.0 turbo petrol engine, and is based on the three-door version of the Mini Cooper S. In relation to the model on which it is based, the JCW version presents a series of aesthetic elements which betray superior performance, such as a special bumper with enlarged ventilation slots, revised taillights with LED integrated, inflated wing bosses, larger side skirts, a prominent spoiler on the trunk lid and a modified rear bumper that integrates a central sports exhaust with two chromed pipes.


The engine taken over from BMW develops 231 hp and 320 Nm of torque, and is offered with a six-speed manual transmission, as well as with a six-speed automatic, with which it ensures superior performance. Maximum power is available between 5,200 and 6,000 rpm, while maximum torque is maintained between 1,250 and 4,800 rpm.

In the company of the manual transmission with six gears, it announces an acceleration from 0-100 km / h of 6.3 seconds and a combined fuel consumption of 6.7 liters per 100 km. The six-speed automatic transmission brings a 0-100 km / h sprint in 6.1 seconds and a combined consumption of 5.7 liters per 100 km. Regardless of the transmission, the maximum speed is 246 km / h.

These resources are managed by an electronically controlled front differential. Alloy wheels are 17 inches in diameter and are fitted as standard. Fans of larger wheels can have a model alloy with a diameter of 18 inches. These hide a Brembro brake system. Optionally, customers can order an adaptive damping system.

In the standard equipment we have offered Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), including Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), Electronic Differential Lock Control (EDLC) and Performance Control (DSC sporty way).

High-end options bring more driving pleasure, comfort and safety: Park Distance Control (parking sensors) available with a reverse camera; Parking Assistant (which performs steering control parallel parking maneuvers); Driving Assistant includes active cruise control, room based video and pedestrian collision warning with initial brake function (Euro NCAP Advanced Award-winning 2014).

Like all models in the MINI range the MINI Connected system will be present. It takes mobile applications and offers solutions for online music (Aupeo !, Deezer, Webradio), social media functions (Twitter, Facebook) or specific MINI apps (Dynamic Music, MINIMALISM Analyzer), all perfectly integrated into the car's multimedia interface.

Compared to its predecessor, the new model is 100 kg lighter (total mass of 1205 kg), stronger, faster and more spacious. The interior was also changed with increasing performance, the new Mini Cooper S JCW being equipped with a three-spoke sports steering wheel, stainless steel pedals, dashboard clocks changed, a gearshift lever from JCW accessories range, and Alcantara upholstery with red accents. More details about the new Mini Cooper S JCW will be published at the Auto Show in Detroit. The model will be commercially available starting next spring according to British from Autocar.
