Priced at Rs 42.9 lakh, the Mini JCW Pro Edition can be booked online on Amazon India.
BMW has launched the Mini JCW Pro Edition in India at Rs 42.9 lakh (ex-showroom). Brought to India via the CBU route, only 20 units of the car will be sold in India. Bookings for the JCW Pro Edition have begun on Amazon India.
This John Cooper Works Edition, like any other, has been fitted with tuning kits and accessories to ensure that it stands out. The Mini JCW Pro Edition will be available in two exterior colour options – British Racing Green and Midnight Black. On the outside, both colour options come with a contrasting red roof and ORVMs. To add to the sporty appeal, the car also gets matte black and red stripes on the bonnet and at the back. Additionally, the rear has been fitted with a large roof-mounted spoiler and carbon fibre tailpipes. All other elements and design cues remain typical of a Mini.
There are changes on the inside too. Although the overall layout is similar to a standard Mini, this one has contrast red elements and carbon fibre bits. Other changes include JCW sports seats, steering wheel with paddles and contrast stitching on the upholstery. The Mini JCW Pro Edition comes fitted with a 12 Speaker Harmon Kardon system and a 6.6-inch central infotainment. It also gets a heads-up display.
The Mini JCW Pro Edition isn’t just about the sport design changes. At the heart, it gets the 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol motor that is good for 210bhp. While in the standard form, the engine makes 192bhp, Mini has been able to pull out the additional 18bhp with the John Cooper Works tuning. This engine comes mated to a 6-speed transmission.
In terms of features, the Mini JCW Pro Edition comes with launch control, three driving modes (Green, Mid, and Sport), gear shift indicator, ABS, Cornering brake control, brake energy regeneration and more.
Although not of the same body style, the recently launched Skoda Octavia RS flaunts similar performance figures at a considerably affordable price. The standard Mini Cooper, however, competes against the Volkswagen Polo GTI.
