Classics Of The Future

Mini Cooper S JCW GP, 2006


Cooper S JCW GP This is perhaps the ultimate version of the first, 2001-launched, BMW-era Mini. Only around 2,000 of these cars were built, signing it off before the Mk2 arrived. The supercharged 1,600cc engine pushed this car from 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in 6.5 seconds. It was robust and capable of providing enormous amounts of fun, thanks to its pin-sharp handling.

Engine1,600 cc, four-cylinder
Top speed149 mph (240 km/h)

The sleek, aerodynamic shape with carbon-fibre rear wing meant this little car could slice through the air with 218 bhp. Lack of rear seats added to its lightness.

Mini Cooper S Coupe, 2014


Cooper S Coupe The Coupe was only the second Mini to have a conventional boot lid (the original had a drop-down version), a styling tweak that provided 280 liters (9.8 cubic feet) of luggage space. This nippy two-seater promised driving enjoyment, particularly the Cooper S and JCW turbocharged versions, which produced 181 bhp and 208 bhp respectively. With a distinctive rear electric spoiler and roomy interior, the Coupe mixed fun and style with bags of practicality.

Engine1,600 cc, four-cylinder
Top speed146 mph (235 km/h)

Greener, faster, and quieter than its predecessors, the Coupe did not scrimp on style, with a new “helmet roof”, raked front headlights, and spacious interior.
