What is a MINI John Cooper Works?

01-18-2018

In the MINI world, three words mark the top level performance trim: John Cooper Works (or JCW for short). But what makes a JCW?

 

In the 1960’s, John Cooper’s workshop became famous for building race cars. The most notable one being the Austin MINI Cooper S that went on to win the Monte Carlo Rally in 1964, 1965, 1967 and would have swept 1966 but were disqualified on a technicality (headlights). As his workshop made motorsport history, we now have our very own John Cooper Works collection fit for every MINI.

 

What models are available with a JCW upgrade?

MINI’s motorsport legacy lives on in the high-performance MINI John Cooper Works range, which includes the 3 Door, Convertible, Clubman and Countryman. Every model in this lineup is equipped with racing-grade tuning and upgraded parts to make a powerful impression.


The MINI JCW vehicles can be spotted by their three signature features: exterior mirror caps, exclusive interior, and distinctive front end. Performance wise, the JCW variants are equipped with upgraded transmissions, oversized brakes, sport suspensions, and a suite of top-of-the-line hardware.
