When the original Mini was introduced back in 1959, it was revolutionary.
No car before it had combined front-wheel drive with a transversely-mounted engine and a unibody chassis structure and four-wheel independent suspension.
The second generation of new Mini debuted last year, which introduced the naturally-aspirated (turbocharged) forced-induction 163 horsepower engines developed in a joint venture with Peugeot-Citroen.
And now Mini has improved on that with the John Cooper Works version of the Cooper S. offered in both hardtop and Clubman body styles.
The JCW upgrades the suspension, brake, wheel and tire, and interior from the standard Mini Cooper S.
The 1.6-liter twincam direct-injection turbo engine that increase power to 208 hp (at 6,000rpm).
