When passion for motor racing is the driving force and intense open-air pleasure the goal, the new MINI John Cooper Works Convertible takes the ideal line from the word go. The second John Cooper Works model of the latest generation combines engine and suspension technology optimised for use on the race track with distinctive design and equipment features as well as the extensively refined qualities of the new MINI Convertible.

The thrilling performance figures and also the handling properties of the new MINI John Cooper Works Convertible - which are always supremely under the driver's control even when moving in extremely sporty style - result from a precisely configured overall package comprising not just the powerful engine but also a sports exhaust system, the sports suspension including 17-inch John Cooper Works light alloy wheels, a sports brake system developed in collaboration with specialist manufacturer Brembo, the John Cooper Works Aerodynamics Kit and the distinct cockpit design featuring John Cooper Works sport seats. The car's performance properties, appearance and fascinating driving experience also give the open-top variant of the top athlete authentic characteristics that both reflect longstanding motor racing experience and the tradition-steeped association between MINI and John Cooper Works. To this day, the name of the legendary sports car designer John Cooper - who once paved the way for the classic MINI to take to the race track - stands for the intensive driving fun and successful motor racing achievements of the small British car.
