MINI JCW range Australia

The Australian market has the highest sales of JCW MINIs, per capita, in the world. So it comes as no surprise the entire lineup is available in the sporty tune. Kai Bruesewitz, MINI Australia’s general manager, recently said,

“Australian motorists just love a great performance car… Now, with a JCW variant available on every MINI model, our customers will be spoiled for choice.”

For all JCW models, each car comes with a bespoke set of sporty details inside and out. With a bodykit, spoilers, larger alloy wheels, racing stripes, and unique JCW badges, the models take the already athletic MINI foundations and turns them up a notch.

All models also come with sports suspension, sports brakes, and in some cases, a sports differential. Equipped with a six-speed manual transmission as standard, they are all regarded as great driver’s cars.

As for the power, almost every model comes with a tuned version of MINI’s 1.6-litre turbo four-cylinder. Outputs span from 155kW and 260Nm (280Nm on overboost) for the two-wheel drive versions (aside from the GP II edition), while the all-wheel drive Paceman and Countryman, and the limited edition GP II, produce 160kW and 280Nm (300Nm on over boost).
