2015 MINI John Cooper Works is the highest performing and most fun to drive car. That is how David Duncan described the all new MINI which made its appearance at the Detroit Auto Show 2015. Although no one can away the idiosyncratic charisma of classic MINI but this new edition brings a refreshing approach to the legacy. 2015 MINI John Cooper Works has an ultra-rejuvenated look with a paint job exemplified by the black hood stripes and a crimson roof.

Under the hood the car has a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder BMW engine that produces 228 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. This shoots the car from 0 to 60 in just six seconds aided by the six-speed, paddle shift automatic/manual gear system. The technological and hardware upgrade doesn’t stop there as it has electronic locking differential, alloy wheels, improved suspension, Brembo brakes and optional dampers.
