MINI has released more photos of the new John Cooper Works Clubman, its hot six-door, which first made its debut at the Paris Motor Show. Along with the new snaps, we also get some details about the new JCW model’s kit list.
Under the hood, you’ll find a 2.0 litre petrol engine, which makes its debut for the first time with the company’s ALL4 all-wheel drive system. The mill produces 231 hp at 5,000 to 6,000 rpm and 350 Nm of torque at 1,450 to 4,800 rpm, which is 30 Nm more than what you get in the JCW Hardtop and Convertible.
A six-speed manual transmission comes as standard here, with the option of an eight-speed Steptronic auto. Both will allow the JCW Clubman to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h run in 6.3 seconds, and go on to hit a top speed of 238 km/h.
To go along with the added grunt, the car’s also gets bigger Brembo brakes, optional Dynamic Damper Control, a sports exhaust with dual chrome pipes, 18-inch light Black Grip Spoke alloy wheels (with optional 19-inch) and a JCW body kit to cut through the air better.
Standard features of the new range-topper include automatic LED headlamps, MINI Driving Modes, Park Distance Control, Comfort Access, Radio MINI Visual Boost, multifunction buttons on the steering wheel and cruise control with brake function.
Inside, you’ll find a 6.5-inch colour screen for the car’s infotainment system (upgradable to an 8.8-inch touchscreen), dual-zone automatic air-conditioning, panoramic glass roof, Dinamica/leather upholstery, MINI Excitement Package and Harmon Kardon sound system.
For those looking for a bit more customisation, also available are sport stripes, chrome-plated exterior mirror caps, the Chrome Line interior pack, lighting package, MINI Yours sports leather steering wheel and MINI Yours Interior Styles (three variants).
