New Mini John Cooper Works Convertible Is The Very Definition Of Niche

In New York, Mini presented to the world the hottest version of their new Convertible which traditionally bears the John Cooper Works designation.

The company says that their latest JCW model “offers the most exclusive way of combining racetrack feeling with open-air pleasure” but we highly doubt that there is going to be a driver who will take this to a track.

Certainly not because it lacks the hardware: the turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine makes the same 228hp and 236lb ft of torque with the fixed-roof model, 39hp more than the Cooper S version, allowing the JCW Convertible to sprint from 0-60mph in 6.4 seconds with the manual and 6.3 seconds with the automatic gearbox.

The suspension has been setup to work with the convertible-specific chassis bracing while the brakes have been developed in collaboration with Brembo. The exterior has been upgraded with all the JCW bits and pieces while the Rebel Green paint finish is an exclusive option, reserved only for the fastest of Minis.

If you ever wanted a Mini that can top out at 150mph and have the wind in your hair, well, we guess you found it.
