From France, we bring you a photo gallery of the MINI John Cooper Works F56 sporting the Red Chili paint job matched with black-painted roof, side mirrors and stripes on the hood.
This is one of the first MINI JCWs to feature this color combination which offers a sharp and interest contrast.
The new MINI John Cooper Works is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder (B48) driving the front wheels. The 231 hp help the JCW achieve a spring to 62 mph in just 6.1 seconds – the manually shifted version requires only two tenths of a second longer. Top speed for the MINI indicates 246 km / h for both variants.
The specially tuned sport chassis features a single-joint spring strut axle at the front and multi-link rear suspension, and a Brembo brake system. All of these delimit the MINI John Cooper Works F56 from the weaker MINI F56 models, and of course the competition.
