With every individually-numbered, limited edition John Cooper Works Challenge MINI, you’ll receive a BlueTooth device which unlocks an unexpected feature, an exhaust so loud and with such a brutal growl that it is technically illegal to operate on public roadways. If you close your eyes when you rev the mighty new MINI, you’d probably think you were listening to the menacing snarl of a Porsche 911, but there is loads of power hiding inside this small package. The same 2.0-liter, 228 horsepower turbo engine you’ll find in the original JCW is there, but with the addition of completely adjustable race suspension components, race-ready brakes, a modified chassis, and some sturdy new wheels, and sport cup tires, this may not look the part but once you’re out on the track, you’ll know you’re in a race car.
