Mini John Cooper Works Challenge


Updated on

If you like small and speedy cars then Mini should be the best pick for you. There was a movie a couple of years ago called Italian Job where 3 Minis where modified and turned into reputable racing cars. Since everyone wants to make a car that it’s like in movies the guys from John Cooper Works modified this Mini into a great racing car. This won’t be approved for use on the roads and it’s designed only for racing. The tuners installed a 1.6L engine that can develop about 210 HP [that’s really huge for a car that’s so small]. Also, they’ve upgraded the Engine Cooling Unit, Suspension kit, turbo kit and many other performance modifications. Since the car is really speedy, the tuners from John Cooper Works installed a high-performance braking system that could stop the car from 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds. The car also received a new body kit, new paint and great racing stripes that makes it look like an authentic racing car. In the end… this car is only available for racing teams and it costs about 49,900 Euro but racing enthusiasts won’t look at the price.
