The latest, greatest, NEW MINI John Cooper Works

 

Last week I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to drive this fantastic car around Goodwood Circuit and the surrounding roads. Now, searching for some words to describe the latest hottest offering from MINI.

Manic, Wild, Deranged. As soon as you hit the throttle the New MINI you are struck with the ballistic performance of this car. Frenetic, Hectic, Frantic, Energetic. The JCW is, …very fast, the ultimate hot-hatch.

These words are all in some ways just too harsh, the MINI JCW is all these things, wrapped up in a more complete package. The drive is just so controlled, intelligent, so good and so much fun.

Onboard the new MINI JCW all the systems and switchable drive modes you could possibly need are there to enhance your performance needs, taming the 231hp and rewarding you with a colossal performance and the most flattering driving experience out there.

No this car, is not a relaxing drive, as docile as it can be in the Green mode, but surely you wouldn’t be buying this car for that. This car is built to be driven, the swifter the better. The car is available now.
