Mini John Cooper Works Countryman, Clubman get boosted to 306 hp

2020 JCW Clubman And Countryman Become Most Powerful MINIs Ever With 302 HP

2020 JCW Clubman And Countryman Become Most Powerful MINIs Ever With 302 HP

John Cooper Works versions of Mini cars are always feisty, powerful things, but now the Countryman and Clubman JCW are getting even spicier. Notable revisions can be seen on the JCW Clubman, which gets new LED taillights following a Union Jack design like the rest of the facelifted Clubman range. As it puts the final touches on the battery-powered Hardtop, it unveiled a pair of hot-rodded, John Cooper Works-badged models that jointly stand out as the most powerful cars it has ever made.

Red racing stripes and accents on the grille adds to the car's sporty persona.

The updated JCW Clubman and Countryman will be available to order from July, priced from £34,250 and £35,550 respectively.

Speaking of traction, both models come with a reinforced all-wheel drive system. Up front, Mini added a new-look bumper with bigger air vents.

Both performance variants have been equipped with the firm's latest generation four-cylinder petrol engine featuring TwinPower turbo technology.

The standard eight-speed automatic gearbox has been revised for greater internal efficiency and to allow the engine to pull lower revs in higher gears. That's that's 55 kW and 100 N.m more than the previous 2,0-litre unit. The top speed also climbs to an electronically limited 155 miles per hour (250 km/h).

As a result, the new JCW Clubman takes just 4.9 seconds to complete the zero to 100 km/h sprint (previously 6.3 seconds), while the JCW Countryman takes 5.1 seconds (previously 6.6 seconds).

An uprated John Cooper Works brake system incorporating larger discs and four-pot callipers aft has been fitted to bring these models to a halt, while a new exhaust system lends some aural drama.
