Home » News » MINI » 2016 Mini John Cooper Works Convertible unveiled
After we saw the new Mini John Cooper Works Coupe, the most powerful Mini ever, the performance division is introducing a new model into the range: the new Mini John Cooper Works Convertible.

As with the coupe, the convertible uses the same 2-litre TwinPower Turbo engine with its 231hp and 320 Nm of torque. So equipped, the car can reach 62mph from rest in 6.5 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 150mph.

If the Steptronic transmission is fitted, it is possible to use the coasting function at speeds of between 30-100 mph, as soon as the driver removes their foot from the accelerator pedal. In conjunction with the Mini Navigation System the transmission is able to take account of the route profile in automatically controlling gearshifts.

The suspension, braking and cooling specification of the Mini Convertible has been upgraded. The Mini John Cooper Works Convertible runs model-specific suspension settings, with a bespoke braking system and larger intakes to increase cooling capability. 

Inside, John Cooper Works sports seats and sporty trim touches create the perfect ambience for the enthusiast driver, and can be complemented by a wide range of optional extras, including Mini Media Pack XL featuring Mini Connected.

The brake calipers are finished in red and bear the John Cooper Works logo, cited behind the standard 17-inch John Cooper Works light alloy wheels in Track Spoke silver. 

The standard Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) comprises of Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), Electronic Differential Lock Control (EDLC) and Performance Control. A Dynamic Damper Control is optionally available, providing two set-ups for either sporty or more comfort-oriented driving situations.
