Small cars are supposed to be, er, small and also costs on your pocket are also, er, small. This is not one of them. This is a car that is small in size but packs a mean punch and has enough performance to scare some big boys. Meet the MINI JCW Pro Edition which has been launched with a price-tag of Rs 43.9 lakh ex-showroom. This is no ordinary Mini and this is a limited edition being only 20 units coming to India in CBU form.
So what is so special about this car? Well there is a lot.. You take a 3-Door Cooper S with the John Cooper Works Tuning Kit (210 bhp, 300Nm) plus add in John Cooper Works Accessories. Thus the JCW Pro Edition features a red roof, red mirror caps, LED headlights surrounded by trim rings in black, 17inch cosmos spoke black alloys, with the 205 profile tyres, carbon Fibre finished dual pipe exhausts and controllable exhaust valve systems. The inteior gets John Cooper Works Sport Seats with integrated headrests, JCW Steering wheel with paddle shifts and auto adjust, John Cooper Works door sills, the John Cooper Works gear selector lever and anthracite roof liner. Phew.
For a small car its well equipped too with high contrast MINI Head-Up Display, Harman Kardon Hi-Fi Audio System and more. This pocket rocket might seem hugely expensive but the performance on offer means its actually good value for money!
