CROSSING THE LINE

The 4.2-metre long MINI Clubman quasi estate-hatchback has become that bit hotter with the addition of a racy new John Cooper Works version. It's powered by the 2.0-turbocharged motor from the 141kw Cooper S but now produces 170kw/350nm. To achieve this, the engine runs more boost, and benefits from modifications to the turbocharger, a larger intercooler, new pistons that lower the compression ratio and a second cooling radiator. Its available with either a 6-speed manual or 8-speed steptronic automatic. Other mechanical upgrades include a firmer suspension, Brembo brakes with four-pot calipers on the front axle, and Mini’s All4 all-wheel drive system. In a car weighing in at 1535kgs, the all-wheel drive automatic Clubman JCW, gets out of the blocks relatively quick. Running from standstill to 100kph in 6.74 seconds, and completing the 1/4mile in just over 15 seconds. It will eventually top out at 244.58kph. Note, these tested times were conducted at around 1420m above sea level, so its fair to say at the coast it will be significantly quicker. Mini South Africa has priced the Clubman JCW from R558 612 in SA. #TunedAutomotive #SomeShitAboutCars
