What are the John Cooper Works MINI Coopers?
What are John Cooper Works models? They are MINI – maximized. If you love the quirky, spirited fun of these zippy vehicles but wish they were just a bit more aggressive, JCW editions are the solution for which you’ve been searching.
When you think of high performance sports cars, what comes to mind? Porsche. Ferrari. Maserati. Lamborghini. But MINI? That’s what people thought when John Cooper rolled up to starting line with the MINI Cooper in 1961. The racing legend quickly silenced the skeptics as MINI handled its way to win after win on the circuit.
Fast forward a few decades: John Cooper Works MINI Coopers offer more robust engines, upgraded performance parts (such as oversized brakes and sport suspension), and a host of racy design elements. You can choose from the JCW option with the Cooper Hardtop 2 Door, Clubman ALL4, Convertible, and Countryman ALL4.
MINI also offers JCW Option Packages for most of its vehicles. This is essentially a mid-point option between the Cooper S and the complete JCW models mentioned above. You can opt to get a Cooper S, Convertible, or Clubman with the sports-oriented trim of the John Cooper Works models.
You’ll enhance your experience with new front and rear bumpers, specially designed 17 inch JCW alloy wheels, leather steering wheel, stainless steel sports pedals, and dynamic damper control or sports suspension. “Full” John Cooper Works models feature a more powerful engine, the JCW Options Package is no slouch with a spunky 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder.
Whether you opt for a full JCW or a JCW Options Package, you will be able to eek out every ounce of enjoyment from your drive. MINI is a master of experience. Visit Braman for a test drive and you’ll see just what we mean.
