MINI JCW Pro Edition 01

MINI Malaysia has introduced the MINI John Cooper Works Pro Edition, a limited-edition run of 20 units that has been exclusively created for the Malaysian market.

Based on the F55 MINI Cooper S 5 Door, the JCW Pro Edition features a number of accessories to help make it unique. The list is led by a JCW Pro aerodynamic kit (RM16,283) consisting of a front splitter, side skirts, rear bumper and rear spoiler, and the car sits on 18-inch JCW Pro cross-spoke light alloy wheels (RM14,858), finished in Jet Black.

The variant is further dressed up with JCW Pro wing mirror caps (RM690) and side scuttles (RM690), which match the side panels of the car. Red and black chequered roof graphics (RM650) complete the distinct look.

Mechanical changes are made up of the inclusion of a JCW Pro tuning kit, which consists of a performance-optimised engine update and a valve silencer system (RM10,000). The package is good enough to boost output on the base B48 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbo engine from 192 hp to 211 hp. Torque is also bumped up to 300 Nm from the standard 280Nm seen on the Cooper S 5 Door.

As for the exhaust flap system, this one offers two sonic modes. There’s Sport for a full sound to accompany everyday driving and Track, which offers backfire pops and cracking for added visceral appeal. Selection can be done wirelessly via two clicks of the Bluetooth 4.0 controller. Carbon tailpipe trim (RM3,000) apply a finishing visual touch.

The MINI JCW Pro Edition, which only comes in Midnight Black Metallic, is priced at RM255,888 on-the-road, without insurance. The performance-oriented offering comes with the MINI 4 Years Unlimited Mileage Warranty with free scheduled service.
