The new MINI JCW Hatch – meet the big bad bruiser.
The MINI JCW Hatch – the hottest, most powerful MINI ever.
Combining a lightweight chassis and body with excellent aerodynamics makes it faster and more economical. With its 2.0 litre TwinPower turbocharged engine pushing out a big 231hp, this MINI is a truly powerful beast, though still producing 49.5mpg.
External styling is practical to enhance aerodynamics, as well as giving the MINI JCW Hatch its distinctive, aggressive stance, enhanced by Chili Red paint work, contrasting sports stripes and exclusive 17” JCW Race Spoke alloys.
New MINI John Cooper Works Hatch highlights
50 years of tuning and precision engineering for motorsport success, that’s what’s intrinsic to the John Cooper Works badge. And all that experience has just been crammed into every molecule of this JCW Hatch. Without a doubt, it’s the most powerful MINI ever.
The 2.0-litre TwinPower turbocharged engine throws out 231hp and 320Nm of torque, that’s 10% more power and 23% more torque than the previous JCW MINI. Burn from 0-62mph in only 6.1 seconds and you also get 10% quicker acceleration from 50-75mph in the new MINI JCW. Take those corners with ease and pass the non-MINIs without bothering to drop down a gear.
Yes, those 335mmm brake discs really mean STOP, with a much reduced 62-0mph time. Do you like the lurking flash of red from those callipers hiding in the alloys?
The JCW Hatch rear wheels are like they’re glued to the road, however hard you hit the brakes and however hard you hit those corners. With new, independent multi-link sports suspension, are you on the road or on the track? It’s easy to forget...
It’s all about the aerodynamics, starting at the redesigned front bumper. Then this super-hot MINI needs a really cool engine, and JCW made sure it gets one with an enlarged lower air intake. Bringing up the rear, but by no means last, the rear spoiler keeps those wheels down on the tarmac where they belong.
It’s true. It’s the MINI that’s been on a diet and it’s down to only 1,280kg. So much more agile and so much more nimble than ever...
You can’t even think of being shy with Chili Red paintwork and black bonnet stripes turning every head, whilst that Sports exhaust plays its motorsport symphony.
You’re low down and held securely in the JCW sports seats, however hard you drive it – was that a corner?
It’s the optional MINI Head-Up Display. Not only does it show warnings, speed and navigation info, but also gear and rev counts, so you know just how your MINI is driving without ever taking your eyes off the road ahead.
The all-new MINI John Cooper Works Hatch is priced from £23,780.
