Mini coupe turns test rounds on the nurburgring

Nurburgring, 24. May 2011 – our photographer has caught the new mini coupe on the famous racetrack in the eifel. As is a racing runway, obviously a particularly powerful version is on the road, the mini usually the designation john cooper works (jcw) is on the way.

Like the 2009 study

In 2009, mini presented a concept car of the coupe on the iaa. The two-sided study was 3.71 meters long, 1.68 meters wide and 1.35 meters high. At the values, hardly something was allowed to change for the production version. Under the adhesive tail we suspect a tailgate inclusive tailgate. The jcw execution is revealed by the front spoiler, the striking fecal airflow set and the centrally sitting double pipe exhaust. In addition, the jcw seems to have a retractable rear spoiler.

240 km / h seem feasible

Under the hood we do not expect any material changes compared to the sedan. The 1.6 liter coarse four-cylinder turbo with 211 hp from the mini john cooper works could accelerate the coupe thanks to the strong inclined windscreen and the showing roof course on more than 240 km / h. There are currently 238 km / h in the limousine. Also, the remaining motorizations of the mini coupe were allowed to take over from the limousine. The market introduction of the coupe is expected this year.
