These flagships are the John Cooper Works models and will feature the most powerful engine ever installed in one of the brand's serial production models.
The little terrier is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged motor with 170kW/320Nm, accelerating to 100km/h in 6.3 seconds and a maximum speed of 246 km/h. Elasticity has even been improved by 10 percent with a figure of 5.6 seconds for acceleration from 80km/h to 120km/h. The figures for average fuel consumption and CO2 emissions in the EU test cycle are 6.7 litres per 100 kilometres and 155gr per kilometre for the manual version and 5.7 litres/100km for the six-speed Steptronic sports transmission.
