The perfect match – highly concentrated power and MINI’s ALL4 all-wheel drive system to unleash that power on to the road. These new versions of the John Cooper Works Clubman ALL4 and John Cooper Works Countryman ALL4 earn these models a spot among the top of their class of sport models in the compact segment.

 

New 2.0L Engine with MINI Twin Power Turbo Technology Produces 301hp and 331 ftlbs of torque.

4 cylinder engine is redesigned with model-specific modifications:

  • +73hp (+32%) & +73 ftlbs torque (+28%)
  • Reinforced crankshaft
  • Main bearing with an extended cross-section
  • Model specific pistons and connecting rods
  • New vibration damper with optimized cooling

     

Independent Cooling Concept with Specific Sport Exhaust System

  • Two external radiators & a model-specific expansion tank with increased volume
  • Independent cooling module mounting & electric ventilator with increased output
  • 3rd cooling level realized using a condenser
  • Independent cooling circuit and external oil cooler for the transmission
  • Split cooling valve can temporarily deactivate cooling of the crankcase to optimize warmup
  • Newly developed sport exhaust system offers intense sound performance with speed bursts

8-Speed Steptronic Sport Transmission as Standard, with Mechanical Differential Lock

  • Latest generation of the 8-Speed Steptronic Sport Transmission offers enhanced efficiency and gear shifts
    • Includes shift paddles on steering wheel
    • Includes Launch Control function
  • New electric gear shifter with red accents
  • Integrated mechanical differential lock reduces speed compensation between front wheels
    • Locking effect up to 39% can be generated under load
    • Interconnected with DSC
    • Enhances traction on loose terrain, poor weather or in spirited cornering
    • Transfers drive torque to the other wheel should one front wheel start to spin preventing loss of traction

ALL4 All-Wheel Drive with Model Specific Components

  • Reinforced gear set for the power take-off
  • Larger flexible disc for the propeller shaft leading to the rear wheels
  • Specific rear drive shafts with greater torsional rigidity
  • Increased spring rate of the engine and transmission bearings results intauter connection between drive units and vehicle structure creating an acoustic barrier and optimized reaction moment in sport manoeuvers
  • Positive effects on both direct steering in bends and response characteristics of the engine

Evolved Sport Chassis, New Sport Brake System

  • Single-joint spring-strut-type axle for the front & multi-joint rear axle wereoptimized to enhance performance:
    o Component rigidity – kinematics – weight
  • Sport brake system now features 4-piston fixed-caliper disc brakes at the rear
  • Large disc brakes (360x30mm @ front, 330x20mm @ rear)
  • Optimized coolant duct geometry

Body Structure & Chassis Fastening with Optimized Rigidity

  • Newly developed precision strut for the engine compartment which connects the right and left spring strut domes
  • Bracing for the front end is provided by specific arrow struts and a dome-bulkhead strut in the undercarriage
  • Large air inlets in the front are designed to serve the cooling requirements of the drive and brake systems
  • Model specific side skirts and independent rear aprons with integrated diffuser elements and roof spoilers

Exclusive Standard Equipment & Premium Options
