2019 MINI JOHN COOPER WORKS.

In 1961, racing legend John Cooper unleashed the potential of the Classic Mini on the racing world.

Today, the new line of John Cooper Works MINI maintain our strong racing pedigree. It has a potent 228-hp TwinPower Turbo engine, matched with afinely tuned Sport Suspension, giving it the incomparable power to match its impeccable style.

As the green flag waves, launch off the start line with exhilarating acceleration and lightning fast shifts thanks to the 8-Speed Sport Automatic transmission. Don’t worry, as you barrel toward the first curve the over-sized Brembo brakes coupled with the sport-tuned suspension enable MINI’s iconic go kart handling bring to life the saying, “the car corners like it’s on rails.”

Your time at the MINI Challenge will allow you to experience the thrill of being behind the wheel of a truly unique performance vehicle, with ample space for the family. So stop dreaming about what life as a race car driver would be like and come join us for spirited Motoring to see for yourself how truly remarkable the 2019 MINI John Cooper Works models really are.
