THE JOHN COOPER WORKS COUNTRYMAN
Meet the winner of the epic Dakar Rally. By combining the racing-inspired performance of our John Cooper Works line with the enhanced ALL4 all-wheel-drive MINI Countryman platform, the John Cooper Works Countryman is ready to tackle any road - paved or otherwise - that comes its way.
FIRST JOHN COOPER WORKS WITH ALL4 AND AVAILABLE AUTOMATIC
Head for the hills: The ALL4 all-wheel-drive system ensures efficiency by directing the engine's power to the front tires and automatically diverting 50% of that power to the rear wheels when conditions require it. The Sport Suspension offers superior handling and an optional six-speed automatic gearbox means even non-manuals can enjoy the thrills of motoring in a John Cooper Works.
Chase down the horizon using the latest generation of twin-scroll turbocharged engines based on VALVETRONIC technology. Responsive and efficient, the 1.6-liter engine reaches its maximum output of 208 hp at 6,000 rpm, going from 0 to 60 mph in 6.6 seconds.
PUTTING THE FORM IN PERFORMANCE
Exclusive paint finishes (including a contrasting Chili Red option),18-inch light alloy wheels (optional 19-inch alloy wheels are available), chrome tail pipes, muscular front and rear aprons and the aggressive skirts of the Aero Kit wage war on anything foolish enough to get in your way - like a headwind.
AN INTERIOR THAT INSPIRES
Interior features like the dark speedometer and tachometer dials, sport seats in Diagonal Track Carbon Black cloth, optional Chili Red trim, a sports steering wheel with the John Cooper Works logo and contrast red stitching lend a sporty flourish to the cockpit.
Launch: Winter 2012
