Meet the most powerful MINI ever. Engineered for the Motoring elite, its 228-hp MINI TwinPower Turbo engine hits 60 MPH in a scant 5.9 seconds, with buttery smooth torque throughout the power band. If you're a demanding Motorer with a penchant for punching above your weight, buckle up. 



With a distinctive, low growl, the John Cooper Works TwinPower Turbo generates a fearsome 236 ft-lbs of torque that will pin you back while doing 0-60 in just 5.9 seconds (with sport automatic transmission).


A more robust transmission, 4-piston Brembo® brakes, Sport Suspension with stiffer front & rear stabilizers and dyno tuning complement all the extra power. 

    • Upgraded Transmission

      A reinforced clutch and stout six-speed manual gearbox match the muscle of the upgraded engine.

    • 4-Piston Brembo® Brakes

      Aluminum Brembo® front brake calipers with large, 13.19-inch, ventilated brake discs, in red with signature John Cooper Works badging.

    • Performance Suspension

      Stiffer springs, dampers, and thicker anti-sway bars deliver a tightly tuned ride – especially on aggressive bends.

    • Brake Ducts

      Functional brake ducts are integrated into the lower portions of the John Cooper Works body kit to keep things cool on hot laps.

    • Rear Spoiler

      Delivering form and function, this rear spoiler gives your aerodynamics and aesthetics a performance bump.

    • 228-HP Turbo Engine

      With a distinctive, low growl, the John Cooper Works TwinPower Turbo generates a fearsome 236 ft-lbs of torque that will pin you back while doing 0-60 in just 5.9 seconds (with sport automatic transmission).

    • JCW Sport Seats

      These upgraded sport seats provide extra support, comfort and style (shown in optional Leather & Dinamica upholstery).

    • Contrast-Stiched Wheel

      With ergonomic leather handgrips and contrasting red stitching, this multi-function steering wheel puts cruise and stereo controls at your fingertips.

    • Stainless Steel Pedals

      You'll be using these a lot, so stainless steel pedals are standard on John Cooper Works models, complete with footrest (not shown here).

    • Signature Door Sills

      Details matter. Like this extra design touch, which gives a nod to your MINI’s high-performance status upon entry.

    • Anthracite Headliner

      This deep shade of green is a body color exclusive to the John Cooper Works Hardtop.

      Distinctive 17” silver alloy Race Spoke wheels comes standard, but you also have the choice of 18” options.


      Front and rear aprons, side skirts, a black grille with a chrome surround and integrated functional brake ducts.

    • Contrasting Red Roof & Mirrors

      A contrasting roof & mirrors is a signature MINI touch. But a contrasting red roof & mirrors is reserved for John Cooper Works models. 

    • Signature Badging

      MINI John Cooper Works models feature signature badging on the lower front grille, tailgate, front brake calipers and door entry sills.
