Sound and Fury: JCW Tuning Kits Now Available for Mini Clubman and Countryman

John Cooper Works mini coop models are the most attractive thus far. John Cooper Works tuning kits are now available for a wider range of models which include the Countryman and Clubman S versions. The kit will raise the horsepower but will not quite bring the S models up to JCW qualifications. The kit will also enable an exhaust system supported by Bluetooth which is safe for use on public roads unrestricted.

Key Takeaways:

  • for the first time, Mini has developed John Cooper Works tuning kits for the S versions of the larger Clubman and Countryman models
  • kits include software upgrades and all-new exhaust systems to help boost power and make sexy sounds while they’re at it
  • the new kit raises horsepower from 189 to 208 ponies at 6000 rpm while boosting torque from 207 to 221 lb-ft between 1350 and 4600 rpm

“They get the most luxury features, the boldest styling, the most aggressive wheels and tires, and the most powerful mill Mini makes: a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four that has been goosed to 228 horsepower and between 238 and 258 lb-ft of torque.”
